The Lakers became the first franchise in NBA history to reach 3,000 wins after a tough win in Dallas on Wednesday night.

Win number 3,000 snapped a four-game road losing streak for the Lakers and improved the 2009-10 squad to a league-best 30-9 record.

In Minneapolis, the Lakers won 457 times in the 1950′s, leaving 2,542 victories in Los Angeles, where the franchise moved prior to the 1960-61 season.

They’ll go for 3,001 against the Clippers on Friday night.
