Following this victory, the LA Lakers continued their outstanding form away from the road. They are now unbeaten in 8 straight games, the best in the entire league. However, their second superstar, Anthony Davis, is still searching for his form.

If the Lakers want to repeat their championship victory this year, they need to be at their 100%. Without AD being at his top game, it will be a tough job to win it all. Luckily, the season is still young and Davis can bounce back over the course of the rest of the season.
