Pelicans to test the hype of Lonzo Ball and youthful Lakers

Lonzo Ball had a forgettable opener against the Clippers but nearly posted a triple double in Phoenix a game later. In addition to trying to corral him, New Orleans will focus on integrating Jameer Nelson, who replaced Jordan Crawford today on the roster. Yet, the biggest thing to watch for overall will be the Pelicans attempting to fetch their first victory of the 2017-18 season!

Pelicans at Lakers preview

Jameer Nelson isn't expected to play much due to cumbersome travel in joining the team in Los Angeles.

The Pelicans might be just one good small forward away from being classified an NBA super team.
