RT @ESPNStatsInfo: Lakers havent allowed a 25-point scorer in last 13 games. Longest such streak for Lakers in shot clock era (h/t elias)


You know.... this only makes it worse that we aren't winning games at a higher percentage, but it seems our defense has been underrated...

The last 13 games no one on the other team has scored 25 on their own against us.

What this means is that our defense has been somewhat solid, but the turnovers and lack of bench production is mostly what costs us.

Also, this number is without a fully 100% Dwight Howard and D'antoni DOES want us to focus on defense right now. I can see us being a very solid defensive team in the future, but the sad fact is that we're still 7-8 despite this defensive record. This means that other changes need to happen but in the very least our defense has been solid in terms of not letting one player get off 30 while we focus on every night, it's been a balanced effort that's been beating us and we have this record WITH us leading the league in turnovers.
Think about that.

That's crazy considering we let a guy like Gilbert Arenas score 60 points against us in 2006

To be honest when I first read about a record we broke I thought it'd be bad too. But when I saw it was that all I could say was wow..

Well, since the Lakers have played 15 games thus far in this season and the streak is at 13 games, I'd say no.

James Harden is the only guy the Lakers have faced in that span that averages over 20 points.

It speaks to the kind of competition the Lakers have faced more than anything.

I'd rather not hear we're breaking records and still losing. That doesn't make me feel better.

How do people know these kind of things happened? I get that literally every little thing is being recorded somewhere, but how does this guy out of nowhere know we just did this?

When it's your job to be a reporter and/or statistic analyst, things like this don't slip by you too easily.

Like I get they need to report it but I'm just saying someone has to be the first to notice, right? Like how does that dude notice it lol. This seems like a kind of record that needs to be brought to your attention.

They prepare booklet for every game that has certain statistics. Like when commentators say stuff like "Kobe has scored 30 free throws in a row..." , only more extensive.

Actually I think what they do now (not 100% sure but I was told from my friend that works for the Clippers) is that everything is computerized now and categorized, and that there is a couple staticians there that have every type of record listed for the team and for the NBA and they list the teams/players that are playing and it gives them categories that are current and can be broken. (FYI, I am not sure if this is true, it came from a friend that works for the CLippers season ticket reps)

That is probably the case. I don't think they randomly look at stuff. Otherwise it would be meaningless. It's just when the statisticians let the media know about something, they prepare a package with some striking statistics like the one subject of this thread, I know this from Uefa Champions League competition. They do it like that there. It's probably the same or very similar in NBA.

Well...

Kobe
Durant
Carmelo
LeBron
Harden
Westbrook
Aldridge
Bosh

Those are the only players (eight of them) that average 20+ PPG, so there aren't very many in the first place.

Fun fact, though...the last time a season contained eight or less averaging 20+ PPG? 1964-1965.

Gotta believe that a big reason for that would be these superteams being put together.

Complete craziness - a Laker fan finding something positive to say - I'm floored!

Its an interesting record. Considering the Lakers had / have a knack for letting small role players go off for career games (usually 25+ point games) this is a quirky but cool accomplishment. All done without full health or a consistent rotation. I'll take it.
