Los Angeles Lakers


OAKLAND –- Given how high the Warriors have risen and how low the Lakers have fallen, there will be no small amount of irony on display when the teams meet Tuesday night at Oracle Arena.


The Lakers are 2-11.

The Warriors are 15-0.

If Golden State beats Los Angeles on Tuesday night, it will break the record for most wins to start a season in NBA history.


Most NBA teams have spent the first month of the season going over scouting reports that can aid their attempts to beat an opponent. The Warriors don’t stop there.


LOS ANGELES – As a Lakers teammate of Kobe Bryant for nine seasons, Warriors interim coach Luke Walton has a rare perspective on one of the NBA’s all-time greats.


This is going to be a pattern this season for the Lakers.
