We're 21-31 as of today. There are 30 games left in the season.

If we play .500 ball, we'd be 36-46.

Schedule looks a little tough the last couple months. Can we do it? What's a good prediction at this point?

2/6 SUNS
2/8 THUNDER
2/10 @ MAVERICKS
2/14 @ PELICANS
2/15 @ TIMBERWOLVES
2/23 MAVERICKS
2/24 @ KINGS
2/26 @ HAWKS
3/1 @ HEAT
3/3 @ SPURS
3/5 TRAIL BLAZERS
3/7 MAGIC
3/9 @ NUGGETS
3/11 CAVALIERS
3/13 NUGGETS
3/14 @ WARRIORS
3/16 HEAT
3/19 PACERS
3/22 @ PELICANS
3/24 @ GRIZZLIES
3/26 @ PISTONS
3/28 MAVERICKS
3/30 BUCKS
4/1 KINGS
4/3 @ JAZZ
4/4 SPURS
4/6 TIMBERWOLVES
4/8 JAZZ
4/10 ROCKETS
4/11 @ CLIPPERS

Don't really care.. as long as the Lakers move up a few spots in the standings.The Clippers will probably move down a few (if they deal Jordan / Lou Williams like they're expected to) and the Jazz are looking to move Hood and/or Favors. I'd be fine with 9th in the west.

It's all about draft positioning for me lol. As long as the pick stays in the range it's currently at (9th to 10th) I'm happy.

If I had to guess.. i'd say they Lakers would probably be about .500 (for the remaining games) or maybe a game above it. So 15 or 16 wins

Somewhere between 13-17 and 17-13.

Iíll say 17-13 because they are showing good growth and developing ability to close games.

.400 ball is 33 wins. We're at .400 now, with an equal amount of home and away games played.

I think the team is getting better as it goes along. IF we don't get blown apart between now and Thursday I'm going to say 35 wins.

I think .500 is a safe bet. They won't be able to sustain the recent winning percentage, but they'll also get a boost from Lonzo, rest during the ASB, and playing a bunch of tanking teams down the stretch. We'll finish 36-46, 10-game improvement over last season. This is assuming no significant trades go down, that is.

.500 from now on is possible. Some teams will tank and some playoff teams could rest players towards the end like last season.

Good point. Without Randle and Clarkson, they probably win 32.

Assuming the team stays together and Luke doesn't start benching KCP and/or Lopez, I say we end the season 36-46.

I'm keeping my expectations low. If we go over 30 wins, while keeping the lotto pick out of the top 8 or so, I'm a happy camper.

My prediction will be 32-50

if they moved both....I am confident they do not get to 30 wins.

After this damn rollercoaster of a season, we're actually gonna show some improvements.

I'll be damned.


Mid 30s would.be such a huge accomplishment for us

My ultimate season gift would be to surpass the clippers in the standigs.


That's this year's goal (9th)

Next is the 8th seed

The year after is 2nd round

Itís cool, let them be mediocre. They needed a 13-0 run to win 104-101. It was more of a Dallas meltdown than anything else.

Jazz are legit imo. Pelicans and Clippers are pretenders.

he had a bad overall game....but the guy is a human highlight every night on the court....once he gets some experience and and begins to diminish the mistakes....he will likely have some special seasons. He still may be the most talented player from the draft....but I would not be shocked if his best years are 24-28ish....then regresses quickly as the athleticism diminishes.

Middle of the road teams (jazz, nuggets, Clippers) are on win streaks. Unfortunately, even if the Lakers win 41 games, they may miss the playoffs by a few games unless a few teams implode.
