Default Lakers season defined by 3 games

Assuming the Lakers win some games, and (most likely team given schedule) the Jazz fall out of the playoff picture, LA's chances to make noise in the postseason will be defined by their performance in the following games:

march 5 @ okc
april 7 @ clippers
april 14 vs spurs


Realistically, LA needs to find a way to win 2 out of 3 of these games to establish themselves as legitimate playoff contenders, if they do in fact make the postseason. None of them are part of a b2b.

I might reconsider if they lose all 3 in triple overtime, and likewise if they lose to okc by 36 and win by 1 point in the other two games, the bet is off.

Today's game @ okc is the biggest game of the season so far for LA.

Agree or disagree that they need 2 wins to convince you they are legitimate.
