6 out of 7 games vs below .500 teams. if they dont win at least 5 games in that stretch, they are (bleep).

Make or break on this sched as I dont think their schedule will get easier than this. I will not guarantee any win vs weak teams now coz Lakers has a tendency to (bleep) up.

vs Nets
vs Blazers
@ Clippers
vs Bulls
@ Warriors
@ Rockets
@ Hawks

I think losing both games against the rockets and warriors will put them in the 12th spot if they will not get their act together now.

we need to catch the 6th seed. idgaf what happens after that.

3 games back.

utah, phx, dallas and sac are our mortal enemies until then.

utah: 1-1, tiebreaker and last game on 2/14 (must win)
phx: already have the tiebreaker
dallas: 1-2, lost the tiebreaker
sac: 0-2, need to win the next 2 against them
new orleans: 1-1, if we win the next 2, we get the tiebreaker

yep need to win these 7 games to at least have a chance on 6th spot, but I doubt it right now. I will be contented if they win 5 games here, including win vs the rockets and warriors.

leking… love your optimism bro but let’s take it 1 game at a time, for instance it’s easy looking at the mediocre teams and thinking we can win almost all of them we aren’t on the level of the Celtics or Nuggets to think like that.. yet

I wouldn't call the Warriors or Rockets bad teams. The Rockets are decent and the Warriors are always dangerous because of their experience.

not really optimistic, i just posted the scenarios.

actually as of now I really think the Lakers will not get in the playoffs via top 6 but instead they gonna be in the play-in again. I am thinking that Pelicans will not maintain their top 6 spot, Suns will overtake them. Just hoping for the Lakers to get the 7th spot.

possible play-in teams:

Lakers
Mavs
Pelicans
Jazz
Rockets

I did not include the warriors coz they are toast.

Lakers can beat any of these teams though.

what sad about Lakers status is that even if they win all their next 7 games, the best they will get is 7th spot, and still not guaranteed coz it will depend if Mavs and Pels drop most of their games. Thats how in deep trouble they are.

7 out of 7 = outstanding, truly back to form
6 out of 7 = excellent, still hunting down a top 6 spot
5 out of 7 = satisfactory, still making progress but top 6 could be tough
4 or below = ughh!

See now we HAVE to beat the Clippers.

And that is ALWAYS the approach we need to have as far as they're concerned.

We are a bad team, so I guess we at least have some even competition in these next couple of games.

We ARE the bad team. There's only like 6 legit teams with a title shot, and we ain't one of them.

Let's not call any team "bad" when we ourselves have a sub .500 record.

It doesn’t matter as much whether the opponent is good or bad, what matters is that they miss the open shots the Lakers defense gives them.
