First 10 games...I'm thinking we start the season 3-7, or maybe 4-6.

I'm trying to be objective. The Laker fan in me wants 9-1. But, I just don't see it, even with Lebron.

Houston- tough game. Harden, Paul, Rockets one of the best teams in the West. They are coming off a loss, they will be motivated. (LOSS)

Spurs- Don't sell this team short. DeRozan and Pop still have their pride. (LOSS)

Suns- Road game for Lakers. Booker is back. Suns will be hyped. (EVEN)

Denver- Denver, like the Blazers, has our number. (LOSS)

Spurs- Lebron will be mad at this time. Won't let us lose (WIN)

Wolves- Their team is in chaos (WIN)

Mavs- Easy Laker win, at home (WIN)

Portland- in Portland...see DENVER (LOSS)

Toronto- Best team in the East, but will KL be distracted (LOSS)

I'd be ecstatic if we're at .500.

All I'm looking for is us to beat who we are supposed to beat. Losses to PHX, DAL would really piss me off, those 2 should be wins with the squad we have now, no excuses.

Besides that I think LeBron could literally drag us to 2 more wins himself if he chose to. I'd say we end up 4-6. I'd be happy with that. Anything more I'd be very happy.

It's kind of hard to say yet because frankly I really, really doubt that we will shoot 23% from 3 again for a long while. We didn't hit a 3 until nearly the end of the third quarter in the season opener. That's absurd but it just happens some nights, it's an anomaly. Despite that we were very much in the game against POR til very close to the end.

I'd reserve judgement until after tonight, which I think will be a loss simply because HOU is a top 4 or 5 team in the league. I think we will look way better tonight but still lose.

Hoping for 6-4 but idk probably not lol

I’ll go out on a limb and say we will beat Houston, lose to SA once, beat PHX, lose to Denver, beat the Wolves and Mavs, finally snap the streak against Portland and lose to Toronto

Your prediction seems most reasonable but the NBA is strange honestly .. teams lose to teams they shouldn’t lose to and beat teams they shouldn’t. Sometimes it just depends on the night

I’m trying to remain optimistic because even tho we lost in Portland we were in that game the whole way against a good playoff team and I’m gonna assume that we won’t shoot that terribly every game ..
