LeBron James, Lakers look to keep Pelicans grounded

The Los Angeles Lakers set a franchise record by winning their first seven road games this season. However, they haven't been as consistent at home, where they will face the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday.

The Lakers pounded the Oklahoma City Thunder 128-99 on Wednesday to remain the NBA's only unbeaten team on the road. But the Lakers, who are an NBA-best 10-3 overall, are 3-3 at home, with losses in two of their past three games at Staples Center.

Against the Thunder, LeBron James had 26 points, seven assists and six rebounds as the Lakers won their fourth straight game. Six Lakers scored in double figures, including Montrezl Harrell, who contributed 21 points and six rebounds off the bench, and Anthony Davis, who collected 18 points and seven rebounds. Dennis Schroder chipped in 14 points, five assists and five rebounds against his former club.
