The Los Angeles Lakers came out strong against the Dallas Mavericks, but their fast start quickly fell flat after the first quarter.

Dallas outran, outhustled and plain outplayed the Lakers in this one as the Lakers debut night of stars ended up looking more like a black hole than anything.

Dwight Howard fouled out in his L.A. debut while Nash started out his stint in L.A. with just three assists to his name. We'll see, moving forward, how these guys will work together to fix the obvious problems that remain.
