Tonight, the LA Lakers will take on the New Orleans Pelicans. In the second game of a back to back, the Lakers look to rebound after their tough loss last night. But the monster that is Anthony Davis stands in their way. Carlos Boozer should have a fun time trying to contain the young star. The Lakers will be without Nick Young (thumb surgery), while Steve Nash & Julius Randle have both been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers @ Pelicans Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:
