On Sunday night, fans will get to see NBA rookie Lonzo Ball in the third game of his young professional basketball career. After a lackluster start against the Los Angeles Clippers for his debut, he bounced back with a huge performance against the Phoenix Suns. On Sunday his latest test will be the twin towers of the new orleans Pelicans. How will Lonzo fare against Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, and the Pelicans? Here is the latest Pelicans vs. Lakers game preview with odds, start time, TV channels, and live stream viewing options.

NO vs. LAL preview

The New Orleans Pelicans will enter this road contest with an 0-2 start to their latest season. They've also gone 0-1 on the road. So far this season, the team has dropped their opener 103-91 in Memphis and followed that up with a loss to the reigning NBA Champions the Golden State Warriors, 128-120. Anthony Davis had been leading with 34 points per game and 17.5 rebounds a contest, so far. Tonight he'll team up with DeMarcus Cousins to try to hold back Lonzo Ball and the Lakers from putting on another show.

That's exactly what the No. 2 draft pick did when his Los Angeles team visited the Phoenix Suns recently. Ball had a near triple-double as he scored 29 points, grabbed 11 rebounds, and had nine assists in a 132-130 win over the Suns.

He had early issues against the Clippers due to being heavily-pressured by defensive star Patrick Beverley. Tonight he'll be up against Jrue Holiday and possibly E'Twaun Moore along with New Orleans' backups. He'll also be contending with Cousins and Davis down low which could make it a rough night for inside scoring by the Lakers.

For tonight's game, the L.A. Lakers find themselves as four-point underdogs at home. The Pelicans are -180 favorites on the moneyline, while Los Angeles is a +150 underdog. The over/under points total for the game as of this report is 221.5 points.
