PostPosted: Sat Jan 07, 2023 9:11 am    Post subject: Next Ten Games

Somehow I was able to get my prediction right in the last ten game thread so let’s start this new one.

We have an important ten games coming up because it’s (1) a pretty challenging schedule; (2) without AD, Austin, and Lonnie; (3) and it is the ten games right before the toughest road trip of the year beginning with @ Boston on Jan. 28

We can hope for a 5-5 stretch here, but 6-4 (or even 7-3 if you pray to the basketball gods) is doable and attainable. Let’s get it.

@Kings
@Denver
v. Mavs
V. Sixers
v. Rockets
v. Kings
v. Grizzlies
@ Por
v. LAC
v. Spurs

I’m hoping we can easily take on the rockets and spurs. We can then hopefully 3 or 4 of the other games especially the home games, against the Kings, Clippers, and Mavs.

Let’s hope for the best and maybe AD can come back ready for the road trip.

We’ve had Denver’s number this season. Clippers are in a slump. 6ers at home is easily winnable. 7-3 incoming.

Lots of confidence regarding the team right now but they have the tendency to let us down

Seriously guys relax, the 4 game winning streak is exciting but being cocky can bite us in the ass in a big way as I see more and more Laker fans talking about catching teams like the Kings and Pelicans..I would love for us to go on run but let’s just wait and see what happens

Next game vs Denver. Thought they beat them twice already, I don't think they can win without AD. Nobody will stop Jokic inside. I don't think TB will, but I will be glad to be proven wrong.

AD plays well against Denver. Will be tough without him.
And Denver has been playing well.
We'd need to get Joker in foul trouble to stay close.

Dammit fans curb your enthusiasm. It might affect the way the team plays.

I think the team is playing well enough to make the game interesting but no AD + Austin and Lonnie and the Altitude will make it very tough

I know we’ve beaten Denver twice, but since this one is at Denver, I would highly consider resting LeBron. Coming off a back to back, his body probably isn’t 100%. We need him fresh for more winnable, but still very challenging home games against Dallas and Philly.

Absolutely not. Lakers have a 3 days rest after Denver. Lebron can get his rest after the Nuggets game. If he’s fine, he will play.

only 2 games behind 5th place kings. Too bad the next 10 schedule will not be easier than the last 10 games. It will all be hard 10 game sched from hereon

A big win vs the Nuggets will likely put them inside the 10th spot.

Beat Kings away and 7 out of remaining 9 are at home. Gotta make home advantage count even against some good teams. Hope we win 5 out of those 7 at least.

Though I already accepted that Denver will beat the Lakers. I still think they will win with the way they are playing at the moment.
