The New Orleans Pelicans and the Los Angeles Lakers did not fail to deliver as both teams came in at Crypto.com Arena badly needing a win.

The Lakers needed this win

The game was so close that neither squad managed to hold on to more than a six-point lead. However, it was the visiting team who secured a 114-111 win in the end, beating the Lakers off a missed buzzer-beater shot from LeBron James

Moments after James threw a short three-pointer to tie the game, Pelicans forward Ingram was heard yelling “LeBrick” to the home crowd, seemingly mocking his former teammate for missing the crucial shot. 

Ingram and CJ McCollum led all Pelicans scorers and combined for 61 points, 23 of which came in the fourth quarter. NOLA also pulled off a tremendous job on the defensive end, limiting James and Anthony Davis to 2 out of 9 shooting in the final quarter.

“We had some poise tonight,” Ingram said post-game via The Bird Writes. “Late in that game, it was us scoring, them scoring, us trying to get rebounds, stops and pushing our pace and then late down the stretch we had some good execution. CJ made some tough shots. CJ hit some big free throws at the end of that game. Everybody was locked in on the defensive end.” 

James remains positive

James, on the other hand, who racked up 38 points in 40 minutes of action, remains positive despite LA being in a terrible position this season. 

"It was pretty much a must-win (game) for us, and we didn't get the job done," James said after the game. "We didn't get into our sets a lot quicker. We didn't execute down the stretch. We got some good looks,"

"Until it says we are eliminated then it doesn't. When that happens then we'll know what our destiny is, but until then, we keep pushing forward," he pointed out. 

As things stand, the Pelicans still have five more games to win in the regular season as they try to secure their spot in the play-in tournament. The Lakers, meanwhile, will also make the most of their fighting chance to make it to the postseason in their last five games as well.
