New Orleans Pelicans and Los Angeles Lakers will meet today, March 23, at 7:30 pm (ET) at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans for the 2020/21 NBA season. Here, you'll find all the match information, predictions, odds, and how to watch the game.

The up-and-coming New Orleans Pelicans have been as good as they've been inconsistent thus far. Gladly for them, they'll face a struggling team when the depleted Los Angeles Lakers visit Louisiana.

The Lakers will be forced to play without Anthony Davis and LeBron James, which gives Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, and Lonzo Ball the perfect chance to get back at their former team.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Los Angeles Lakers: Storylines

The Pelicans entered this season with high hopes and expectations with coach Stan Van Gundy at the helm but they've struggled to find a defensive identity. Even so, they have perhaps the most promising young core in the league and could go to battle vs. any championship contender.

The Lakers will go through quite the rough path in the upcoming weeks. There's no timetable for the returns of Anthony Davis or LeBron James and they're at serious risk of not even making the playoffs. Hopefully, Kyle Kuzma and Talen Horton-Tucker will step up for Frank Vogel's side.
