The February schedule is overrated. We've already beaten the Pacers, the Celtics doesn't scare Lebron, neither do the 76ers. Apart from the Warriors, and Houston, every other game is very winnable, and is interspersed with games like the Grizzlies, the Pelicans, the Hawks, and the Clippers


Yikes bro we shall see. Gotta see some major improvements from flexing on the Pistons and the Mavs feb is brutal


We'll have both Lebron and Rondo back in Feb though. Also both Lebron and Rondo individually were putting the hammer on GSW ... before the Warriors took them both out

how did GSW take Lebron and Rondo out? Lebron pretty much did it to hiimself by diving on a loose ball... and Rondo (bleep) his hand by punching CP3's mug

this is gonna be an important game for both us and Utah. for them, 1st of back to back home games (2nd is Chicago) against a direct rival. if they win both they improve to 23-21, while we would be 23-20 before our 2 games streak of "easy" games against Cleveland and Chicago.

I'm hoping that Denver (or someone else) somehow pulls out the 1 seed, that Golden State and Houston are the 2 and the 3 in some order, and that we end up in the 4/5 pocket.

I just looked at our upcoming schedule and compared it to Utah's...


Bruh.....


At this point, I'm hoping the Clippers go on a losing streak cause Utah is taking a spot in the top 8.

The Lakers are 23-20 in the 8th seed one game ahead of Utah. Tough loss last night we could have been 2 games ahead of Utah.

Games to watch.

Det at Clippers
Memphis at Miami
NO at Minn
SA at OKC
Denver at Phx
Chicago at Utah
Charlotte at Sac

Looks like Griffin is determined to lead the Pistons to a win over his former team.. if the Clippers end up losing and we win tomorrow we will only be like a half game back from passing them.

Clippers are starting to come back down to earth, I think Utah will take there spot and we make a run at a Top 5 seed in the West with a hungry motivated LeBron.

Pels and Minny are tied with a 20-22 record, who do we want to get the won? There is a better chance NO makes a run at a playoff spot then Minny.

No point rooting for Utah to lose, we need the Clippers to fall out, Jazz are basically guaranteed to nab a spot at the top 8 in the WC... Clippers however aren’t cause there schedule is pretty tough.

Can't believe someone would get that reference.

Pels lose, and now they will be definite underdogs in their next 3 road games at the Clippers, Warriors, and Blazers. Then they have another roadie at Memphis, which has been sliding. Still, any road game for the Pels can't be a gimmie for them, not against anyone in the West not named Phoenix. (And even they have been playing better lately.)

We need a nice losing stretch here by them. Anything to make it more likely that they are forced to examine what they want to do about AD long-term. They very well may hold off on doing anything until the summer, but being well back of a playoff spot at least increases the chances that they re-examine things. I'm encouraged by Gayle Benson's comments that basically said that they would try to accommodate his wishes if he asked to be traded.

I thought it was Laverne and Shirley that had that on their show. I thought it was Shirley that was saying that while making the arm pushing each other exercise.
