The Lakers will be playing for their 3rd victory in a row, while the Pelicans will be going for their 9th straight loss. Xavier Henry will be back for the 2nd straight game as he faces his former team. Nick Young, Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash are all still out with injury. While the Pelicans will be without their starting point guard, Jrue Holiday, who is out for the rest of the season. The Lakers look to carry the momentum from last night's surprising victory to complete the 3 game winning streak, which would only be the 2nd such streak the Lakers have achieved this year. For a more in depth summary of tonight's game, check out the preview: New Orleans Pelicans at Los Angeles Lakers Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:
