Tonight, the Lakers will play against the Pelicans, as they try to build upon their win against the 76ers on Monday. There is just one problem with that. They will have to go through the monster that is Anthony Davis. The Lakers will be without Nick Young (knee fracture), and there is no telling if Byron Scott is ever going to play Ed Davis or Carlos Boozer again. Kobe Bryant, Ronnie Price & Julius Randle have been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers vs Pelicans Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:


Los Angeles Lakers New Orleans Pelicans
PG Jordan Clarkson Eric Gordon
SG Jeremy Lin Tyreke Evans
SF Wesley Johnson Quincy Pondexter
PF Ryan Kelly Anthony Davis
C Tarik Black
Omer Asik
