Not since suffering the season-opener defeat at the hands of Los Angeles Clippers that the results went South for the Showtime this season. At the moment, the Lakers boast the best winning streak in NBA and will hope to stretch to seven games when Miami Heat comes to town for a regular-season matchup at Staples Center.
That said, the Heat won't be easy to roll over, for the team is brimming with confidence having started the new season with a 6-2 record from the first eight games. They are currently sitting 2nd on the points table in the Eastern Conference and that's a surprise considering the teams like Philadelphia 76ers, Milwaukee Bucks and the defending champions Toronto Raptors all sitting below them.

LeBron James: Class is permanent. Never in the history of NBA had a player managed to dominate the game and rack up as good a numbers at the age of 34 years as the King has been this season. He is fresh off recording a triple-double with 30 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds against Chicago Bulls.
Anthony Davis: He is a monster on the court. Hardly there is any player who can get the better of Anthony Davis. Supremely talented and versatile enough to play in a variety of positions.
Danny Green: Watch out for his clutch game. His passing and his shooting beyond the arc is an added advantage for the Lakers.
Jimmy Butler: The former Sixers star is dominating the court for the Heat. To good a player to miss out on.
