Before All-Star forward Anthony Davis joined the Lakers during a trade last summer, he “didn’t know much about” Alex Caruso. He blocked a shot by Lonzo Ball that went off the Pelicans’ guard’s back and out of bounds. Thirty-six seconds later, Caruso stole the ball from Ball and scored while being fouled by JJ Redick. Caruso made the free throw for a three-point play that gave the Lakers a five-point lead and the momentum they needed to hold off the Pelicans. “Yeah, I’m a big energy guy, as anybody who has seen us play can attest to,” Caruso said after Tuesday night’s game.
