Los Angeles Lakers vs Brooklyn Nets: Storylines

The reigning champions have had to endure a tough couple of weeks. They struggled to get by vs. subpar teams and will now be forced to play without Anthony Davis for the next two or three weeks. Then again, LeBron James continues his MVP-caliber season and proving that he's still one of the best players in the world.

The Brooklyn Nets just got a lot better with the addition of defensive specialist Andre Roberson a couple of days ago. Now, they're only missing another rim protector and they'll be perhaps the most overpowered team in NBA history. Nonetheless, they still have to prove that they can coexist.
