Here are the Lakers’ next 5 games. A pretty tough set of opponents, with 4 of the 5 on the road.

11/5 vs Grizzlies
11/8 @ Celtics
11/9 @ Wizards
11/11 @ Bucks
11/13 @ Suns

What are your expectations? 2 and 3 seems reasonable and would give us a record of 6 and 8 over our first 14 games — on a path to win about 35 games this season, which many of us were optimistically projecting.

Anything less than that in the next 5 would be disappointing.

On the other hand, if we win 3+ out of 5, we will have won at least half of our first 14 games and will be in the hunt for a playoff position.

It will be a good test for the young team. I will optimistically predict that we win 3.

What do you expect?

11/11 @ Bucks - Loss (Giannis destroys the Lakers)
11/13 @ Suns - Win (Suns lose another close game)

You're dreaming. We can't even go 4-1 playing at home.

Wouldn't shock me if we went 1-4 or even 0-5. That's a tough set of teams. The Grizz have been good to start, Irving is going to run all over us, Wall is going to be looking for revenge in Washington, Giannis is too good, and the Suns have actually been playing well since dumping Watson and Bledsoe sitting. I'd be happy if we went 2-3, and absolutely ecstatic if we can go above 0.500 over the next five.

Grizzlies - Win (Must win game imo. Lopez has a good chance to keep up with Marc. Conley might kill us though)
Celtics - Loss (if this was at LA, then Win but as I hate to say we probably lose here)
Wizards - Win (don't know why everyone is picking 100% lose here. Wizards suck right now, especially Wall. Beal is there only bright spot thus far)
Bucks - Loss (would be pleasantly surprised with a win here)
Suns - Win (this time, destroy them)

Walls arm was in a sling after the Cavs game. Is he going to be out anytime soon?

His x-rays came out negative and ended up as a sore shoulder and questionable for his game against the Raptors.

Hope it's not a Fultz situation

There's a difference between making a prediction and what one wants to happen.

Reality is, Boston is on a 7 game winning streak and we play in Boston. I think it's likely we'll lose, but I want to win all 82 games.

Conley played today, so I would expect him to play tomorrow.

Can see that too.
Young'ns on the road is usually not pretty... but..

BTW, was there talk about not playing mike back to back due to his achilles?

Suns - Away
Philadelphia - Home
Suns - Home
Denver - Home

Maybe be @ 10-9...

Bad feeling about Philly. I think they kill us to prove a point. Wizards we seem to match up well against.
