NEW ORLEANS (AP) -

Jordan Clarkson scored 23 points, Lou Williams added 21, and the Los Angeles Lakers won for the fifth time in six games, beating the New Orleans Pelicans 126-99 on Saturday night.

D'Angelo Russell scored 22 and Nick Young added 15 points for the Lakers, who shot 55.3 percent (52 of 94) overall and made 16 of 30 3-pointers.

Anthony Davis scored 34 for New Orleans, but left the game for a pivotal stretch with apparent lower back pain after his layup had cut Los Angeles' lead to 63-62 in the third quarter. Davis went to the locker room and was out of the game for four-plus minutes while the Lakers went on a 14-0 run.

New Orleans never recovered.

Rookie Buddy Hield scored 18 points for the Pelicans.

    Two games into the preseason, and Drew Brees still hasn't got on the field. Instead, the most airtime Brees got was with the family before kickoff. Without No. 9 in the lineup, the Saints offense turned the ball over four times in the first half. The Cardinals capitalized on the mistakes, and beat the Saints, 20-15. The entire Brees family taking a picture pregame. Brittany, Drew, Baylen, Bowen, Callen, Rylen. @FOX8NOLA @Saints #Saints pic.twitter.com/eZZ5p0SoxC — Garland Gi...
