DALLAS Already in this young season, the Los Angeles Lakers have changed personnel, coaches and systems. But on Saturday in Dallas came a constant: A 115-89 laughter that marks the Lakers' 103rd win over the Mavs in 135 regular-season tries.
These Lakers aren't the legendary Lakers of yore at least not yet. LA is just 7-7 (the same record to which Dallas dropped) after...
