The Los Angeles Lakers have the best record in the NBA, they're unbeaten on the road, and LeBron James and Anthony Davis are playing at a peak level, but coach Frank Vogel still sees room for improvement heading into their game on Monday night at the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Los Angeles improved their road record to 9-0 by winning the first two games of their seven-game road trip. They Lakers beat the Milwaukee Bucks 113-106 on Thursday, and the Chicago Bulls 101-90 on Saturday.

James, who is set to play in Cleveland for the second time since leading the Cavaliers to the NBA title in 2018, scored a season-high 34 points in the win against Milwaukee.
