Pelicans-Lakers Preview

(AP) -- While they haven't fared well in recent matchups with playoff-contending teams, the New Orleans Pelicans are capitalizing on an advantageous part of their schedule.

With Ryan Anderson's return imminent, the Pelicans seek a third straight victory as they try to sweep the season series from the lowly Los Angeles Lakers in the opener to a three-game road trip Wednesday night.

New Orleans (39-34) lost to three of the Western Conference's top five teams as part of a season high-tying four-game losing streak before bouncing back with two wins by a combined 36 points against easier competition.
