Record vs. each other (2013-14 season):Mavs are 2-0 versus the Lakers this season

  • The Los Angeles Lakers season is finally coming to an end; only 7 games are remaining on the schedule and they can put an end to what will likely be the worst season in Los Angeles Lakers history, at least record-wise. The 1974-75 Lakers currently hold the title of the worst team in L.A. history, where they finished 30-52. The Lakers must go 6-1 in their final 7 games to avoid tying the mark for futility.
  • The Lakers will face a motivated team in the Dallas Mavericks today who are in a battle for the final 2 playoff spots with Memphis and Phoenix. The Mavs are currently holding on to the 7th spot but only a 1/2 from 9th place Phoenix Suns.
  •   The Mavs are 2-0 versus the Lakers this season and if they win today they will have swept the season series for the first time in their history.
  • Pau Gasol is in danger of missing the rest of the season due to his bout with Vertigo.
