Here is a look at the Lakers and the Mavs since the All-Star Break

The Lakers:

Record Win pct Home Games Away Games Opp. Winning Pct Points PA Point Diff
5-5 0.5 5 5 0.514 98.9 95.6 3.3






 







 

The Mavericks:

Record Win pct Home Games Away Games Opp. Winning Pct Points PA Point Diff
11 -1 . 0.917 7 5 0.4928 102.25 96.833 6.8

We all know that Dallas is on a hot streak and that L.A. has just suffered it's first 3 game loss streak in. So maybe it's not a fair time to make the comparison, but here it goes.

The Mavs have won over 90% of their games, averaging over 102 points per game, beating their opponents by an average of almost 7 points.

The Lakers, playing less games in the same span of time, have gone .500. They have scored under 99 points per game and have an average point differential just over 3.

Kobe and the lot have generally faced a stronger group of opponents,  but the Mavs haven't exactly had it easy

L.A. had showdowns with Boston, Dallas, Denver, and Orlando, all teams with great records.   The Lakers went 1-3 against those teams. 

For their part, Rick Carsisle's bunch faced-off with Phoenix, Atlanta, L.A., and Orlando.  They swept those teams as part of their 11-game streak.

That streak also made victims of Charlotte and Miami, the teams that, along with fellow Big D victim Orlando, handed the Lakers their first 3-game losing streak in two years.

We also have to consider that the Mavs have missed many key players; Dampier hasn't been back, Butler missed a few with allergies, Kidd sat out one, and Terry and Haywood were injured for the Chicago game.

It's pretty impressive if you ask me.
