Week 1

Quote:
1. Los Angeles Lakers
2020-21 record: 2-1
Previous ranking: 1

The Lakers' offense sputtered on opening night, mustering just 109 points on 46.9% shooting (31% from 3) against the Clippers, before exploding in their next two games. L.A. hung 138 points on Dallas in its next game, having three guys score 20 or more and five reach double digits, and then 127 points on Minnesota -- in a game that Anthony Davis sat out -- with six players scoring 10 or more. -- McMenamin

This week: POR, @SA, @SA, @MEM

Week 2

Quote:
1. Los Angeles Lakers
2020-21 record: 5-2
Previous ranking: 1

After posting the third-best road winning percentage in league history last season, the Lakers are off to a 3-0 start away from Staples Center this season, sweeping a two-game set against the Spurs and then holding the Grizzlies to 58 points over the final three quarters in a 108-94 win on Sunday. LeBron James is starting to look like the guy who finished second in MVP voting last season, following up a triple-double against the Spurs with 22 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists against the Grizzlies. -- McMenamin

This week: @MEM, SA, CHI, @HOU

Week 3

Quote:
1. Los Angeles Lakers
2020-21 record: 8-3
Previous ranking: 1

Anthony Davis popped off following Thursday's disheartening 118-109 loss to San Antonio, calling the Lakers' defense "s---" and adding L.A. has no prayer of repeating as champions with an effort like that. He returned to the lineup two games later and helped dominate Houston 120-102, recording three blocks in the process. "It wasn't like I was fabricating it," Davis explained. "It was the truth; we were really bad defensively. We had been bad defensively." It might have woken up the Lakers. If so, watch out. -- McMenamin

This week: @HOU, @OKC, NOP

Week 4

1. Los Angeles Lakers
2020-21 record: 11-3
Previous ranking: 1

Things are going so well for the defending champions -- off to an 11-3 start while ranking first in defensive efficiency and fifth in offensive efficiency -- you couldn't blame Kyle Kuzma when he actually entertained a recent question about the "D" word: dynasties. "We're trying to get to that plateau and peak to continue to win championships," Kuzma said, adding that LeBron James can provide some experience in that realm for the new guys to follow. "A tough, lofty goal, but I think that's what we all put out to do." -- McMenamin

This week: GSW, @MIL, @CHI
