Go ahead, say it. The Los Angeles Lakers are undefeated this year.
We are finished with 2015 and now finally on to 2016, where the purple and gold have yet to lose a game. That’s the good news. The bad news is that they have played one game and it was against the league’s worst team, record-wise, the Philadelphia 76ers.
In what was an ugly game for about three quarters, both teams were in a battle of who could be less terrible. But the Lakers changed that in the fourth quarter by outscoring the Sixers 31-24 en route to a 93-84 win. While it may not please the pro-tank crowd, the Lakers are winners of two consecutive games for the first time in about 11 months.
Los Angeles is now 7-27 on the season while Philadelphia drops to 3-32, as both teams still sit at the bottom of the league.
Gary and Honi get together to discuss the game, the Lakers win “streak,” and of course, tacos.
