It is quite possible that they go less than .500 on their remaining games, they are pretty anemic on the road.

No clue...

2/20 BOS W
2/22 POR W
2/24@DAL L
2/25@DEN L
2/28 MIN W
3/3 ATL W
3/5@OKC L
3/6@NOR W*
3/8 TOR W*
3/10 CHI W*
3/12@ORL W
3/13@ATL W
3/15@IND L (this is the kind of game LA's frontline should win, but I think they drop it)
3/17 SAC W
3/18@PHO W
3/22 WAS W
3/25@GSW W*
3/27@MIN W*
3/28@MIL W
3/30@SAC W
4/2 DAL W*
4/5 MEM W
4/7@LAC L
4/9 NOR W
4/10@POR L
4/12 GSW W
4/14 SAS W* (Pop will be resting his starters)
4/17 HOU W*

22-6? I should probably put them down for a couple more losses, but I figure they're definitely not going to finish sub-.500 (meaning at a minimum, they'll go 16-12). I actually asterisked 8 more games they could reasonably lose, for a 15-13 finish which would put them at 40-42.

What I don't get about this is that people don't take into consideration what the team above will have to do to set that line.


The Rockets, if they're the team above the Lakers, have to go 16-9 to get to 45 wins. 17-8 for 46, 18-7 for 47, 19-6 for 48. They're not near that pace right now. What makes anyone expect that to be the standard they play to? The teams behind, logically, have to go even better. The Jazz are on pace for about 46 wins...and they're ahead of Houston.

Good point, I didn't make a playoffs prediction for this exact reason.

Hmm. So someone has the Lakers schedule from 90 years from now, when everyone posting on this forum will be dead. What other information do you have from the future?

They actually have a pretty easy end to the season. They might actually pull it off.

No more bad losses. These are the gimme games they've got remaining:

Portland 2x
Minnesota 2x
New Orleans 2x
Toronto
Orlando
Sacramento 2x
Phoenix
Washington
Milwaukee

That's 13 games that should be wins. The Lakers can't afford to lose about any of those.

I very much doubt they beat Sacramento X 2, they are 1-1 against us and there only win came when we didn't have Cousins on top of that the Kings trashed them 3-0 in the preseason where all there starters were healthy and played 30+ mins (not that preseason means much). Kings always get up tp play the Lakers and match up fairly well.

But the Lakers do have a high number of winnable games theres no doubt about that.

14-14

Losing to the Kings twice, the Pistons, the Raptors at home, and the Sixers is not the sign of a good team, even if they beat the Thunder, Nuggets, Clippers (without their best player), and Knicks. The rest of their wins like Milwaukee, Portland, Atlanta, and Brooklyn are all against mediocre or slightly above average teams.

2/20 BOS W (Revenge game)
2/22 POR W
2/24@DAL W
2/25@DEN L
2/28 MIN W
3/3 ATL W
3/5@OKC L
3/6@NOR W
3/8 TOR W
3/10 CHI L (Just don't see this as a win, especially if Rose is back)
3/12@ORL W
3/13@ATL L (2nd of back to back against a winning team)
3/15@IND L
3/17 SAC W
3/18@PHO W
3/22 WAS W
3/25@GSW L
3/27@MIN W
3/28@MIL W
3/30@SAC W
4/2 DAL W
4/5 MEM W
4/7@LAC L
4/9 NOR W
4/10@POR W (Blazers will probably be in tank mode)
4/12 GSW W
4/14 SAS W (Pop will be resting his starters)
4/17 HOU W

21-7, for a 46-36 record, which should get them into the playoffs unless they have games like the road games against the Suns, Kings, Cavs, and Raptors or the home losses against the Magic and Sixers where they play down to the competition, which can cost them from now on.
