Team Matches Best Start In Franchise History

Anthony Davis Believes It Would Be ‘super Special’ To Win Championship With Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers rub their eyes and do not leave their astonishment.

As of the team's victory on Friday night against the Washington Wizards, they've now matched a franchise-best start after playing their first 19 games of the season.

The Mavs eliminated a deficit at half-time in 28-5 to open the second half, destroying the strong defense of the Lakers. Less heralded offseason additions like Danny Green and Dwight Howard are excelling in narrow roles. After the game, Brooks praised both, the Lakers and James, in a post-match interview. Instead, this team has the look of a legitimate powerhouse through the first 23 percent of the season. The current Lakers' squad has similar aspirations to win it all behind their stars. This the Lakers' first double-digit winning streak since the 2009-2010 season, when they won 11 straight games.

The NBA champions have led 77-37 for the biggest half-time advance in the history of the franchise and the NBA this season.

"Do whatever I can to help this team win a championship". "Their record is 17-2 for a reason". Coach talked today on how we played back in New Orleans. We're pretty good once we're clicking.

The Lakers built their winning streak by exclusively beating up on teams that are now under.500. Already ranked 30th out of 30 National Basketball Association teams in scoring defense allowing 122.7 points per game, Washington allowed an average of 131 points per game on the road trip, capped by 150 scored on Sunday against the LA Clippers. ESPN now has the Lakers playing the league's sixth easiest schedule up to this point. With still 2:42 remaining before the start of the fourth quarter the Lakers rang in 100 points.

Moving cross country, winter storm takes aim at Northeast
The system has already dumped heavy snow from parts of California to the northern Midwest and inundating other areas with rain. American Airlines issued waivers for passengers traveling Sunday and Monday on flights to and from New York's John F.

That's 10 wins in a row for LA, who lost just one game in November as they continue to lead the league with an outstanding 17-2 record.

The Lakers also got to rest their stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis, as they were up by 26 heading into the fourth quarter. King James is also putting up incredible numbers so far this season and is averaging 25.7 points, 7.1 boards and 11 assists a game while shooting 49.9 % from the field and 36% from beyond the arc. Dallas averages 47.6 rebounds per game and is 11-1 when pulling down more rebounds than opponents. Per 36 minutes his blocks rise to 2.6 per game, not far from the 3.2 of previous year.

Just as Doncic's career has gone into overdrive, making him a popular MVP candidate as an encore to his Rookie of the Year campaign, so too have the Lakers' expectations.

Since James' playing days with the Cleveland Cavaliers, it has been a well-known fact that James has had an ability to impact the decisions made by his team.

Nine of the Lakers' 14 games in December come against teams that are now above.500.

While they'll have some challenging games along the way, they appear to be the team to beat right now.
