Anthony Davis returned to New Orleans for the first time in the purple and gold, booing the pelicans with 41 points, including a game-winning tackle and a game-guarding free throw, to give the lakers their ninth straight win, 114-110.
The lakers' offense was centered on Davis, who made 28 shots and scored 36 points in the first three quarters, but the pelicans held on to a solid lead with Jrue Holiday and former laker Brandon Ingram, who appeared to have hurt his arm on the final collision of the third quarter.

It was LeBron James's turn to dominate the game in the fourth quarter, scoring 15 points in a single quarter and adding three 3-pointers from Kyle Kuzma to the lakers' remarkable turnaround, while Josh Hart made two free throws in 42.2 seconds before the pelicans had a chance to tie the game.
