With Anthony Davis and LeBron James, the Los Angeles Lakers are going to be good for a long time. But there are doubts about what they’ll be able to do this season, especially in the loaded Western Conference.
With the Clippers, Nuggets, Jazz, and Rockets all gunning for Western supremacy, it certainly won’t be easy to pull off the Championship victory.
But the numbers are on their side and when it comes to facing off against the best in the West, no other team has a better record than the Lakeshow, who stand at 18-11 on the season (62%).

Despite the doubts, the numbers seem to prove that the Lakers are most equipped to handle their business this postseason. They are dominant on both offense and defense, have had the West’s best record all season long, and have a roster loaded with talent and experience.
But will they be able to close the deal when it matters most? That much remains to be seen, but the odds certainly seem in their favor.
It will be interesting to watch it all play out in front of our eyes.
