I do think Memphis will tell the story. We best them and look pretty good. May be we are turning a little corner. We lose and look lost then the next 4 will be difficult

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


3-2 or 2-3 seems more reasonable.

But if the young guns go 4-1 then the BSPN hype train starts gearing up. This hopefully means Lonzo starts being more aggressive and hitting shots.

Bye.

I'd say our only loss comes against the Bucks though.

If we go 3-2 then the hype train should be going too. Those are some tough games against tough opponents. Even the lowly Suns have been playing better since our last game.

Yeah. We have no idea how we will do on the road but as many young teams do, I would expect them to struggle on some games.

We have only played 3 road games, losing 2, with the lone win againsy a Suns team that was in disarray and being blown out in NBA record fashion. We won by 2.

We are also playing some very good teams.

Memphis has already beaten HOU twice and GSW once and LAC once. Boston is on a 7 game win streak.

Likely lose tonight, and against Celtics and Wiz. I think we can beat MIL and Suns. Our best chance to win one of the first 3 games is tonight since we are at home. Of we can steal that one, good shot to go 3-2.

2-3.
We win against the Grizzlies and the Suns.

After this road games sequence, we have a favorable sequence at home. I think we can reach .500 then.

5-0.

(2-0) Zo gets 2 triple dubs.
(3-0) Kuz hits a game winner.
(4-0) Ingram puts Giannis on a poster.
(5-0_ BroLo makes more 3's than the entire Suns team.

If Brook continues his last game form and Lonzo's shots finally start falling then we can win some of these. If they both are poor then chances are we'd go 1-4. I'm hoping the law of averages pans out and we can win a few.

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.


Have you beeen watching these other teams play?

Despite Giannis being great, the Bucks aren't playing well, at all.

The Suns little streak that they have been on came to a crashing halt in NY on Friday. They are still not that good.

The Celtics are good but, they have trouble scoring. You push the pace on them, they can be beaten.

Memphis is good, but at home, we can beat them.

And as for the wiz, they can be beaten on any given night. They are extremely inconsistent.

I think 3-2 is extremely reasonable. We are giving some of these teams a little too much respect. Record wise, we are right there with all of those teams.

They'll win against the Suns and maybe Memphis if Conley sits. So 2-3.

After this 5 game run, we face:

x 76ers
x Suns
x Nuggets
x Bulls
@ Kings

We can easily go 4-1 and be above .500.

Lose to the Celtics and the Wizards. Mem, Mil and Pho are all up in the air. We could go 0-5 or 3-2, more likely 1-4 or 2-3.

Whatever we do I will be very pleased to see us playing competitive ball, limiting our TO's, maintaining our defensive intensity, and getting out and running.

Surprised we're 5-5. Thought that KCP injury was for real and it was gonna be just like last year's start.

Even at 5-5, the Lakers have the same or better record than 15 other NBA Teams!

I know its early and they were are .500 early last season, but last season's team did no display the defense and desire that this years squad has!
