The Lakers won their division for the 31st time and appeared in the Western Conference Finals for the 39th time. With 65 wins, they recorded the third most wins in franchise history, the most since 1999–2000, and improved on their 2007–08 record by eight wins. The Lakers sold out all 41 home games for the season, led the NBA in money earned from overall ticket sales, and had the 5th highest increase in gate receipts from the previous season.
