Christmas comes early for Lakers
I'm scanning December schedules for every NBA team trying to figure out who has the most road games, who plays the toughest opponents and which team has to go back to back most often in order to rank the upcoming schedules.
When I get to New York's schedule, I notice the same Knicks that lost to Orlando beat Sacramento a week later. And those same Kings ended up beating the Detroit Pistons, who later defeated the Los Angeles Lakers, who beat the defending NBA champion Spurs on Nov. 6.
