The Kobe Lakers has been around for quite some time now, and that's something that should be a big plus for anyone who enjoys sports. They've consistently had the highest winning percentage in the NBA and even though they've lost their last couple of games to teams that didn't have as good of a record as they do, they have the second best winning percentage in the entire league. However, one team has started to dominate the entire league and that's the Dallas Mavericks. Here is a look at the teams and how they are doing it.
If you were to start looking at the Dallas Mavericks first, you would find that they actually have the best overall scoring margin in the entire league right now. They are second in the entire NBA with a mark of plus-4.7 points per game. The Lakers are next at plus-3.5 points per game, which is good enough for fourth place in the West. So if the Lakers have been a disappointment so far this season, they'll have to pick up the pace or the Dallas Mavericks will win every time.
The Dallas Mavericks is another team that is top heavy with talent. Dirk Nowitzki is second on the team with 18.2 points per game and Tyson Chandler leads the way with nine. They also have Jason Terry, who ranks second in the NBA with 2.3 steals and also has the third best rebound rate in the league.
The Dallas Mavericks is actually a very good rebounding team right now as well, which should help them win games because of the fact that the Lakers are not known for being a really good defensive team. If the Dallas Mavericks can run the ball, they will win games, but they won't be able to score all that many points at the same time. They'll have to use both sides of the court effectively and hope that the Lakers don't get too much help on them.
Now that the Lakers are a lot more experienced, there's no reason for them to go into every game with the same attitude they did when they first came into the league. They need to slow down a bit in order to make sure that they don't embarrass themselves, which is why they need to get better players to help with the younger ones. They might be one of the best teams in the league, but there's always room to make an improvement.
Hopefully these Lakers scouting reports will help you decide how well the team is doing so far. so you can get a better idea of what your chances are going into each game.
