They have split the past eight meetings, but New Orleans is 4-1 in its past five at Target Center. ... The Lakers-Hornets tag team on Friday-Saturday nights is the same scheduling setup as last March, when Ricky Rubio tore his knee vs. the Lakers.

Players to watch: F Ryan Anderson entered Friday having led Hornets reserves in scoring in nine consecutive games and 18 of 21. He had made five or more three-pointers in a game 10 times this season. ... PG Greivis Vasquez is an early leader for Most Improved Player. He leads his team with 18 double-doubles.
