The 15-time All-Star voiced his frustrations Saturday after the Lakers dropped their Saturday matchup against the Anthony Davis-less New Orleans Pelicans 128-115, dropping Los Angeles' record to 29-30. "When you've never been there or know what it takes to actually shoot for something like that, sometimes you're afraid to get uncomfortable".

Then, the team went out and faced a New Orleans Pelicans team without Anthony Davis and got blown out.

"You will see a reduction in Anthony's minutes, " Ferry said as the Pelicans get set to visit the Indiana Pacers on Friday. "If we were playing the Baltimore Claws we would sit him out that game too, OK?" "It's how you play the game, prepare for the game".

The 34-year-old added many of his teammates don't know what it's like to fight for the NBA's biggest title. "And we were doing that and obviously it sucks that my injury happened and [Lonzo Ball's] injury happened and so many of our injuries happened".

Could Ball fix most of the problems the Lakers have?

Saturday, Maine Family Planning announced that it will seek a preliminary injunction to prevent the rule from going into effect. The rule will also force clinics to report cases of rape, incest and human trafficking - as federal law already requires.

After the meeting, Gentry said Davis was slated to start at IN on Friday night. "We came in here at halftime and just said that we have to have a better second half than we did yesterday". "It's either we do or we don't".

The Pelicans closed the quarter strong again, outscoring the Lakers 12-3 over the final four minutes to take a 69-57 lead into the break, and Los Angeles never got back within single digits. It's how you prepare for the game, and that's not even like, when you get to the arena.

Although Ingram and James both lifted the Lakers' offense, they also contributed to the team's 23 turnovers, which New Orleans gladly turned into points of its own. "We worked well together and I appreciate what he did for me". "As a whole, we're just not consistent".

Reserve forward Cheick Diallo, now in his third season out of Kansas, had one of the better games of his career.

"I'm so huge on chemistry and camaraderie, and throughout the course of the season with injuries". NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said last July that it was time to revert back to the policy that will allow players to go into the league right out of high school, something that will have to be collectively bargained with the players.
