The Lakers thrashed the Pelicans 116-95, having lost to the same side last Friday.
The Pelicans coach told reporters: "We just didn't go out there and play as hard as we had been playing. We had the same game plan against that team last week and held them to 85 points, but we just didn't execute tonight.
"When we got down, and as a young team, I think we let our offensive game affect our defense. It was just too easy for them."
The Pelicans are bottom in the South-West Division with a 3-5 record.
