The Lakers got off to a good start this season with a win, but then suffered two straight defeats at the hands of the Warriors and the Spurs. They managed to drag themselves back to 2-2 with a win on Sunday against the Atlanta Hawks, and they will be hoping to now push on and claim a second win in a row in Dallas.

Los Angeles will be hoping to claim their first road win of the 2013-2014 season, however, the Mavericks will not be in any mood to be generous, and they themselves will be hoping to improve on their current 2-1 record.

So far the highlight of the season for the Lakers has been the depth of their team, with their bench scoring 48 points. That bodes well for what will be a long, tough season, and the teams with more depth in their rosters will be better placed to maintain form when injuries or bad form hits some of their stars.

Last season the Lakers won three of their four face to face meetings with the Mavericks, but this season Dallas comes into the game with a very much mixed up roster, which includes a lot more youth and athleticism. They will have hopes to make the playoffs this season, and will be hoping to win tonight.
