If BI comes back for Detroit and Hart by 3/31 they could hit 6-4. Houston has just about wrapped up the 1 seed. 2nd Utah game might be not mean much to Utah in standings and clippers could be eliminated from playoffs before last game.

Detroit
Dallas
Sac
Utah
Houston
Clippers

Might even beat the Bucks or Spurs but those two along with Minnesota will probably be desperate for the win.

I said mid to high 30’s in the beginning of the season somewhere on this site. Looks like that’s where the lakers are headed. Everyone is pretty much playing to their potential with some surprises, like Kuzma and Hart.

I predicted 33 and I'm glad we're gonna finish the season above it

I think we go 5-5 to end the season.

I predicted 31-34, depending on when you asked me. They should finish around 36-37. Really successful year.

I went with 33 when you went with 31 partially so I could give you hell if the team did well.

Literally almost everything that could have gone right this season did:

-Kuzma is a steal
-Hart is a steal
-Lonzo does everything wel besides shoot(which a lot of us already were ready for)
-Dumped Clarksons contract
-Added a first round pick
-Finished well above our and national medias predictions
-Play a fun, attractive style of basketball
-Finish Top 12 defensive rating

How can anyone complain?

I predicted 32 because I underestimated the defensive capability of this team and where we were going to get production on offense outside of KCP, Ingram and Brook.

1. Randle has been a beast
2. Kuzma has won more games than anyone could really say, out of a rookie no less.
3. Lonzo is the exact opposite of predicted liability on defense.
4. Hart has been a tremendous 2 way player.

Ingram, KCP and Brook have performed to what I expected but I think the above 4 have exceeded expectations overall and it’s exciting that those are members of the young core. This isn’t a Lou Will or Swaggy P please shoot us to a win, we have no direction type team. We coming.

Didn't post here, but I posted 36 at RealGM under "NPZ" in the general section. I remember a stan tellin me that was typical Lakerfan exaggeration. I wasn't exaggerating, but I didn't expect 36 to come so erratically. I think they've blown enough winnable games to put a bottom feeding East team into playoff contention. Wonder how many we coulda had with a closer. Wonder how many we coulda had without all the injuries, too. 95 team won 48 and had stretches with CBA pickups (Lloyd Daniels, Randolph Keys). That was a 55 win team max. Likewise, this probably would've been a .500 team if we were lucky with the health.

40 wins would be epic.

Also I wonder what the over and under will be if we get LeBron and PG..will it set to be at 50 wins?

I predicted 32. If we could hit 37, I’d walk away mildly satisfied. And if we pass Charlotte and Detroit in the standings that would make me sleep easy until July 1.

I went with 33 and they will exceed that it would appear. Get to 37 or 38?

Not bad.

Well, that didn't happen. Still, a lot of good things did.

They still need to win a few more to make the record look respectable but its already a big improvement from last year. I think the league was trying to grease the wheels for a playoff run since almost all of the remaining games are at home against teams on the 2nd night of a back to back. That should be a big help in these final games.

They are already one win more than my prediction, so I would conclude that it has been a good season. Two seasons in a row upping that win total from the previous season.

The injuries combined with moving Nance and JC really kneecapped our strong post ASB surge. I think even a healthy IT could have gotten us to 40 wins.

BUT agree, a great haul with the draft, we have a very bright future ahead as long as we keep the core together.

Very glad I was wrong about Luke, Randle, and Ingram. And about only winning 28 games. Next year we're definitely in the playoffs, even if we keep the same exact squad, but especially if we replace IT and KCP with a star.
