Lakers top of the conference

NBA Finals champions LA Lakers have started this season like they ended the last with 10 wins in their first 13 games.

The Lakers lead the outright table and are top of the Western Conference after three consecutive away victories this week, two of those against the Houston Rockets.


A record

The Lakers made history against Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday (GMT)  by winning 128-99, their seventh straight victory on the road. Their previous record was six in 1985/86.

Montrezl Harrell added 21 points and six rebounds, while Anthony Davis scored 18 and seven rebounds.
