Lakers equal record for best start to season with Wizards win

LeBron James Lakers Spurs

Luka Doncic drives around LeBron James. The Lakers finished the first quarter coming, 37-23.

"We have championship aspirations, but at the end of the day, that's not what's here right now". Their 17-2 start is also the best since that same season. Twice, in 1971-72 and 1999-00, they won the championship.

The Lakers, though, enter December with the NBA's best record, and they're ready for stiffer competition. That keeps them near the best odds to win the 2020 National Basketball Association title. For instance, the injury-riddled Golden State Warriors hold a 4-16 record while the Memphis Grizzlies are 5-13. A 74-8 record would set a new all-time mark and equate to a 90.2 winning percentage. We're just going out and playing and trying to get better every game.

Of those 15 November games, 12 came against opponents now below.500. How about falling to 0-2 in the battle for Los Angeles with the LA Clippers after Christmas? If the season ended today, the Suns would be the Lakers' first round opponent in the playoffs.

The Lakers next play the Dallas Mavericks at the Staples Centre on Sunday.

Coach Frank Vogel acknowledged his team's challenge against the Nuggets on Tuesday would be greater than the one they faced against the Mavs. ESPN now has the Lakers playing the league's sixth easiest schedule up to this point. While it was 2:42 before the start of the fourth quarter, the Lakers scored 100 points. The Lakers now have the NBA's fifth-best defense by allowing 102.8 points per 100 possessions. Similarly, a bottom-third ranking in such an important offensive category can't possibly bode well for a team that needs to space the court for its two superstars. This season, Davis averages 26.1 points, 9.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists while shooting 47.9%.

After a big game against his former team, Anthony Davis once again dominated against the Wizards. Two previous Lakers teams achieved that start. They had the 10th fewest makes per game from distance.

The Lakers went 14-1 in the month of November, but the schedule gets much more hard.
