Danny Green scores 17 with 5 treys, Lakers defeat Pelicans

Los Angeles Lakers guard/forward Danny Green scored 17 points (6-of-10 field goals, 5-of-9 3-pointers) with 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, 1 block, and 2 turnovers in 31.2 minutes of a 118-109 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday.

What It Means:

Green briefly exited after suffering a laceration to his right eyelid, but he played through it and finished with one of his better lines of the campaign. The veteran had failed to score more than 5 points in each of the previous four contests, so this may not necessarily be a sign of things to come. The Lakers will visit the Golden State Warriors on Thursday.

Green scored 36.0 FanDuel points on Tuesday, his fourth-highest output of the season. numberFire's models project him for 8.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.0 steals, and 1.6 triples per game over the rest of the season.
