Metta World Peace has a productive day for the Lakers on Tuesday

Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace drew hist second start of the season on Tuesday, finishing with a season-high 18 points to go with 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 4 steals and 4 3-pointers in 24 minutes of action in a 108-96 win over the New Orleans Pelicans.

What It Means:

The Lakers have now won five straight games, hurting their draft lottery odds while other teams have been taking to improve their draft picks. This was very likely World Peace's last game as a Laker, and also likely the last NBA game for the 37-year-old.

While he didn't play much of a role this season, with only 150 minutes across 24 games, World Peace has racked up 13,055 points, 4,447 rebounds, 2,630 assists and 1,719 steals over his 17-year career.
