Scottie Barnes out for the season, so this should be an easy win.

The Raptors are 1-14 in their last 15 games. If y'all didn't know, they are blatantly tanking in an effort to preserve their Top-6 protected pick.

To boost that effort, RJ Barrett has been out for 3 weeks and Immanuel Quickley has been out for 2 weeks.

However, of course, they are BOTH returning for their first game back this Tuesday against the Lakers.

I can promise that each will magically make their way back to the injury report shortly after the game.

this is a game that we not only should win, but should win comfortably to allow LBJ and AD to rest for tomorrow, not sure if they will though...

one thing to note is that Kuz has been out for the past 2 games, but is LSSR is real, you can bet he will suit up tomorrow

Do we ever blow teams out after 2 or 3 quarters anymore? I've missed those days. Let's hope we make quick work of them so Bron and AD could get some rest. Go Lakers!

we actually blow out teams quite often nowadays, but we just easily let them back in the game.

There still gonna have Kelly Olylynk a guy who has a history of giving us trouble, they also gonna have Bruce Brown who would probably love nothing more then be a spoiler in behalf of the Lakers, Lakers can’t relax and think the Raptors are gonna fold

Yes but I do wanna see plenty of Max, Castleton, Lewis and Mays so DLo-AR-Rui better run the score way up by the start of 4th

These teams are trying real hard to keep the Lakers in one of the last 2 play-in spots.

But I blame us and our play-in merchant stars.

Lakers won’t move up IMO, it’s really hard to hope your team wins and the team you want to pass to lose, it almost never works out, Lakers just need to play there best ball heading into the play in

That’s the one advantage to be playing a bunch of top teams at the end of the season, those other teams may not need the wins as much and may be more likely to load manage to keep guys fresh for playoffs.

I think teams would love to keep the Lakers out of the playoffs but they can’t. The Lakers are in.

It’s easy to just throw out an opinion in general without looking into the facts or circumstances at all. Still you could be right and normally it is hard. If you got time, and care about that sort of thing, then take a look at the remaining schedule tho. Maybe it changes your mindset, maybe it doesn’t. However, It does look like the Lakers should logically catch the Suns, especially with the tie breaker in the favor of the Lakers. The Suns would have to win more than 3 out of 6 upset games plus beat the Suns while the Lakers would have to lose to the Pels or get upset without winning an upset. Sure, all of that is possible.

great. we can hear him got on a rant again after his jumpshooting team doesnt get half as many freethrows as the Lakers.

Also, never fails with the team getting healthy on their biggest game of the year
