Alex Caruso got his starting stint and finished with 9 points. Not much has been given by Avery Bradley in this game as hee just had 6 points in eight shots. Davis had only 24 minutes in this game and rumor has it that the Lakers wanted to face the Grizzlies in the first round of the playoffs and they gave the win to give them a cushion. That being said, they donโ€™t want the Pelicans to be catching the Grizzlies and they will see to it that they will win this game at all costs.
