NBA Game Summary - New Orleans at LA Lakers



(Tuesday, November 12th)

Final Score: LA Lakers 116, New Orleans 95

Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Jordan Hill scored a career-high 21 points and pulled down 11 rebounds to lead the Los Angeles Lakers in a 116-95 blowout of the New Orleans Pelicans.

Nick Young donated 17 points off the bench, Pau Gasol chipped in 14 with eight rebounds and Xavier Henry and Jodie Meeks each scored 15 for the Lakers, who bounced back nicely from a humbling loss to Minnesota on Sunday.

Los Angeles shot 56 percent from the field, held a commanding 53-31 rebounding advantage and led by as many as 28 to win going away.

"This is a good group of guys," Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni said. "Today they realized what it's going to take to win."

Eric Gordon paced New Orleans with 17 points and Anthony Davis checked in with 15 points despite battling foul trouble. The Pelicans have dropped the first two tests on their three-game road trip, which ends Wednesday in Utah.

"We just didn't go out there and play as hard as we had been playing. We just didn't execute," Pelicans head coach Monty Williams said.

The Lakers, who lost in New Orleans last Friday, opened the second quarter on a 12-2 run to extend their 22-19 lead, and they never looked back.

Jrue Holiday stopped the flurry with a fadeaway jumper, but the Lakers answered with the next eight points, as Gasol's bucket pushed the margin to 42-23 with 4:50 remaining in the half.

Los Angeles was in front, 55-39, after shooting 55 percent from the field in the first half and continued to press the pace coming out of the break.

Two days after surrendering 47 first-quarter points to the Timberwolves, the Lakers did not allow the Pelicans to hit that mark until five minutes were gone in the third.

Henry highlighted the quarter with a thunderous dunk over Jeff Withey, with whom he played college with at Kansas.

It was an 86-62 game at the end of three, and the reserves from both sides got plenty of playing time the rest of the way.

Game Notes

The Pelicans have lost nine straight road games against the Lakers ... Tyreke Evans, who was questionable with an ankle injury, scored 11 points for New Orleans ... Lakers point guard Steve Blake handed out a game-high 10 assists.
