LA LAKERS: LAST SEASON: 35-47, missed playoffs.
COACH: Luke Walton (third season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Rajon Rondo (8.3 ppg, New Orleans), G Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (13.4 ppg), F Brandon Ingram (16.1 ppg), F LeBron James, (27.5 ppg, Cleveland), C JaVale McGee (4.8 ppg, Golden State).
KEY LOSSES: F Julius Randle, G Isaiah Thomas, C Brook Lopez
KEY ADDITIONS: James, Rondo, McGee, G Lance Stephenson, F Michael Beasley
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The biggest star in basketball joined this glamorous franchise as a free agent. After appearing in eight straight NBA Finals and winning three titles, the 33-year-old James accepted the challenge of starting over on the West Coast with several fellow veteran newcomers and a fairly talented young Lakers core. His ability to get the most out of this mix will be one of the NBA's most compelling story lines.
OUTLOOK: James' ability to carry a team is unquestionable, and he arguably succeeded with less help in Cleveland than he should get from these Lakers. No serious observers believe the Lakers can compete with Golden State or join Houston and Boston as true contenders for the Warriors' throne, but ending the Lakers' franchise-record five-year playoff drought would be a promising start to the LeBron era in LA.
NEW ORLEANS: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Alvin Gentry (fourth season, 16th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Elfrid Payton (12.7 ppg, Orlando/Phoenix), G Jrue Holiday (19 ppg), F E'Twaun Moore (12.5 ppg), F Anthony Davis, (28.1 ppg), C Julius Randle (16.1 ppg, Lakers).
KEY LOSSES: C-F DeMarcus Cousins, G Rajon Rondo
KEY ADDITIONS: Randle, Payton
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Davis and Holiday played the best basketball of their careers last season and provide the Pelicans hope of returning to the playoffs. Davis has continued working on building his physique and strength with the expectation that he might have to play more at center now the Cousins is out of the picture. Davis also says his goal is to prove he is the most dominant player in the NBA. Holiday thrived last season when he was able to play more at shooting guard, allowing him to focus more on scoring and crunch-time defending than setting up the offense. The acquisition of Payton should allow Holiday to resume that role.
OUTLOOK: While it's hard to replace Cousins and Rondo, general manager Dell Demps is hoping Randle and Payton wind up being better fits because of their relative youth, defensive play and ability to thrive in an up-tempo offense. Gentry has said he wants the Pelicans to play even faster than their NBA-leading pace last season. It just might work. New Orleans' top three front court players 'Davis, Randle and Nikola Mirotic' all have shown they can be effective playing that way.
Lakers visit Pelicans and part-time Davis

The Los Angeles Lakers will try to keep their momentum going Saturday night, when they visit the New Orleans Pelicans, who aren't getting full work out of unhappy star Anthony Davis.

The Lakers are coming off one of their most impressive victories of the season, a 111-106 win against the visiting Houston Rockets on Thursday night in both teams' return from the All-Star break.

"I believe we'll continue to get better and better," said Lakers star LeBron James. "(Thursday) night was a good step in the right direction."

The Lakers had lost four of five heading into the break, but James said he and Los Angeles are ready to kick into an extra gear heading into the stretch run.

James missed 17 games with a groin injury sustained in a Christmas Day win against the Golden State Warriors, which likely still ranks as the best victory for Los Angeles this season.

"It wasn't that I needed to reach a different level," James said. "It was that I needed to be in that level right now under the circumstances that we're in. Just kick-starting something a little bit earlier than I've done in the past. I like where I'm at. I'll love where I'm at in the next few games."

The Pelicans looked strong through the first half of their return from the All-Star break, building a 20-point lead Friday night at the Indiana Pacers. Indiana scored a season-high 39 points in the third quarter while holding the Pelicans to 23, and the Pacers continued to pull away in the fourth quarter for a 126-111 win.

Davis, who came into Friday averaging 28.1 points and 12.9 rebounds, is playing restricted minutes because of a left shoulder injury sustained Feb. 14 against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Davis played 19 minutes against the Pacers, finishing with 15 points and eight rebounds. Davis scored eight in the first quarter, sat out the second and scored seven more in the third.

The disgruntled Davis, who has asked for a trade and doesn't intend to re-sign with the Pelicans when his contract expires after next season, will be on limited minutes through the rest of the season, according to interim general manager Danny Ferry.

Nothing came of trade talks between the Lakers and Pelicans before this month's trade deadline.

"Things always run smoothly when there's a plan in place," Davis told reporters Friday. "That's what's in place right now. Until something changes, I'm going to do what they tell me to do. Whenever I get subbed in, I'm going to play as hard as I can and try to help the team."

James continues to contribute in a variety of ways for the Lakers. He leads the team in scoring (26.8 points per game), rebounding (8.7) and assists (7.6). He is the only player in the NBA averaging at least 26 points, eight rebounds and seven assists per game.

"I'm just an all-around basketball player," James said. "You can't give me a position. I'm just a ballplayer. Put me on the floor; I'm going to make plays offensively and defensively. I sacrifice my body, sacrifice for my team."

The Lakers will host the Pelicans on Wednesday after their two-game road trip concludes Monday at the Memphis Grizzlies.

Los Angeles and New Orleans met on Dec. 21 at Staples Center, when James had 22 points, 14 assists and 12 rebounds in a 112-104 victory. Davis had 30 points and 20 rebounds in that game.
