Lakers Tough in Back-to-Backs

Back to backs aren’t always kind to veteran NBA teams like the Lakers, but for whatever reason, that absolutely hasn’t been the case in 2010-11.

L.A. has gone 9-4 in the first game and 11-2 in the second of back-to-backs, as well as an unbeaten 12-0 in the kind of home/road back-to-back they enter on Tuesday/Wednesday against Utah/Golden State.

There’s one remaining back-to-back on the schedule, also of the home/road variety, against San Antonio and Sacramento to close the regular season.

Last season, the Lakers went 6-6 in home/road back-to-backs, 3-1 in road/home and 16-8 in road/road contests.
