Starting next week, Lakers has a chance to have a psychological advantage vs other playoffs bound teams.

Lakers will be up against the Nuggets, Clippers, Blazers and Suns.

If Lakers will dominate this 4 games, that will be a big psychological advantage against teams in the playoffs. But can they do it? On the other hand, this can also be a disadvantage if they have a poor performances in these games, as teams will now aware that they can beat them.

But I hope their weaknesses shows now vs these teams, I dont want them to dominate them honestly, specially if that weaknesses will not be exposed. Weakness exposed now means more tapes to watch and more time to fix it.

If lebron plays tonight we will beat denver. Historically we are a terrible matchup for them and they really don’t have anyone to guard him anymore. Even though we are currently at G league level form I still think we can pull a W tonight. If no lebron, then we lose big.

We need Dennis to beat anyone at the moment.

This is a bit of a cliche, but really at this point I don't care about wins/losses, I just want to see the team play wall to wall defense for the whole game and show the ability to get stops. If they can do that by the end of the season then I will like their chances no matter playoffs or play-ins.

Nugs, Clips, Blazers, Suns. NBA really set the Lakers up at the end of the season. The Knicks game will also be tough because they have been playing good. Scary.

It's time for Vogel to dump the gameplan and forget about predetermined minutes or roles for the team. If you cannot play defense you don't get to play. Gasol and wes matthews need to be given consideration again for minutes. Anyone who is not giving effort on defense or is getting lit up needs to just not play anymore. Drummond, THT, Kieff, and Trezz should not be handpicked minutes anymore. If you don't play defense, you don't play. Simple as that.

The only statement the Lakers should be making is desperately finding a way to get a couple wins down the stretch to avoid plummeting to the 9/10 spots.

This. Without a secondary creator our offense seems to fall apart.
