Lakers extend win streak to 10, match franchise best at 17-2

Haffey  Getty Images Lakers PF  C Anthony Davis returns to New Orleans for the first time since being traded in the offseason

While the deliberate pace that Orlando plays has a part in why the Magic score so little on offense and allow so few on defense, it is still a strong defensive team.

It seems that reputation has followed him to Los Angeles. Davis is eighth in the National Basketball Association averaging 26.1 points per game and Doncic is third in the league averaging 30.8 points per game.

These records and milestones should be a sign of great things to come for Lakers fans, as they all share one common trait: the teams who held those records all went on to win the NBA Finals in their respective seasons.

The 2008-09 Lakers team also started out at 17-2, behind Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol. 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.

"We have championship aspirations, but that's not what's here right now", said James.

But he said officials are hopeful they can rescue the last girl alive, as 30 people continue searching on foot. Sunday along Tonto Creek after being halted Saturday evening, The Arizona Republic reported .

"We played well. And they beat us, but we beat ourselves with the rebounding, so we know what we've got to do better". The best team Los Angeles defeated during this streak is the Phoenix Suns, who are 8-10.

Of those 15 November games, 12 came against opponents now below.500.

Anthony Davis had 26 points and 13 rebounds, and LeBron James had 23 points and 11 assists before both superstars took the fourth quarter off in the Lakers' 17th win in 18 games.

The Lakers host the Dallas Mavericks (12-6) December 1, while the Wizards look to improve against a tough Los Angeles Clippers team (14-6) on December 1 as well. While it was 2:42 before the start of the fourth quarter, the Lakers scored 100 points. But there remains a gold standard the purple and gold are striving for as the Lakers enter a portion of the season that features eight of their next 11 games on the road, including formidable opponents such as the, and the twice - the first of which is coming Tuesday at Pepsi Center. Per 36 minutes his blocks rise to 2.6 per game, not far from the 3.2 of a year ago.

"We can play better", James added. James is No. 4 and Davis is No. 6 in the all-in-one impact stat. Two previous Lakers teams achieved that start. He finally got his way and left for the Lakers. They beat Atlanta 150-101 last month.
