The New Orleans Pelicans defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 131-126, ending a 10-game losing streak.

Brandon Ingram led the Pelicans with 35 points, his best performance since returning from a toe injury.

The game was tied in the third quarter, but a momentum-changing sequence of CJ McCollum driving and scoring a floater, followed by a stolen inbounds pass and a 3-pointer from Jose Alvarado brought the deficit down to three.

The Pelicans' offense finally came alive in the second half, scoring 70 points, and held the Lakers to only 20 points in the fourth quarter.

The win was significant for the Pelicans, who got back to .500 and maintained their lead over the Lakers in the standings.
