One of the biggest struggles for the LA Lakers this season was the lack of use of the best starting lineups the team had last year. But coach Darvin Ham finally has learned and isn't experimenting anymore but doing the job he was supposed to do at the beginning of this campaign.

Taurean Prince started for multiple games, usually being one of the worst scorers for the team, and having too much playing time made fans wonder the reason behind the preference Darvin had for him. But the Lakers head coach has started to make things right.

Darvin finally sent Prince to the bench and now the starting five have D'Angelo Russell, Austin Reaves, LeBron James, Rui Hachimura, and Anthony Davis. Tonight that lineup led the way to beat the New Orleans Pelicans.

The starting five was so great that finally made the players excited with all of them scoring 20+ points to beat the New Orleans Pelicans. Austin Reaves got to speak on the offense: "I think we played this lineup quite a bit last year... So we have kind of a good feel of how to play together."

The Lakes got a decisive win over the New Orleans Pelicans

The Lakers beat the Pelicans decidedly, 139-122 on the 2nd night of a b2b. D-Lo 30p 5a; Reaves 27p 4a; LeBron 21p 14a; Rui 21p 5r; AD 20p 6r 6a. LAL tied a franchise record for pts in a Q with 51 in the 2nd and had all five starters score 20 or more.
