Here are the game highlights of the match between the Los Angeles Lakers and the New Orleans Pelicans which was scheduled on March 2, 2020 (PHI time).
The Lakers traveled to New Orleans to face the Pelicans in their fourth and final showdown in the elimination round of the 2019-20 NBA season.
Los Angeles played without their superstar Anthony Davis who is a former Pelicans and their top overall pick back in the 2012 NBA draft.
Yet, it was a no problem scenario for the visiting team as LeBron James and company took over the scoring slack left by Davis who is currently nursing a sore knee injury.
James delivered 34 points, 12 rebounds, and 13 assists while Kyle Kuzma had 20 markers.
Speaking about the top draft pick, New Orleans got its scoring boost from their prized rookie Zion Williamson who produced 35 points and seven boards.
Williamson got help from former Lakers’ players Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram who scored 19 and 15 points respectively yet not enough to overpower the number one seeded team of the Western Conference.
