I'd give them 9-10 wins in that stretch. But by the end of it, barring any unforseen moves, they are likely to be buried.

You actually see 9 wins in that list? Can you elaborate?

LeBron is so amazing that we might squeak out some up set wins but yeah unless major changes are coming before the trade deadline, those stretch of games will likely bury our season

Bolded the 12 games that I believe are definitely winnable, and the Lakers will likely be favored in a few of them. (FYI - Nets is contingent on KD still being out.)

If the Lakers can go 9-3 in the bolded and 5-8 in the other 13, then that 14-11 stretch would put the Lakers at 34-35 and likely in position to make the play-in tournament with 13 games left in the season.

1-24, why? We are playing better basketball as of late.
All depends on if Bryant and Schroder show up.

We beat Denver twice.
We beat Sacramento.
Almost best Dallas and Philly if it wasn't for stupid Darvin Ham.
We beat other teams we should be beating.

I think we can win 12-14 of those 24 games, at least.
Also depends on 1) if the Lakers make a trade and 2) when Davis comes back

We've shown that we can beat anyone on a given night. We've also shown that we can lose to anyone on a given night. I'd expect us to win 12-15 of those games, and it might be more than that.

lol you are wrong, they should have won against Mavs and Sixers if not for the refs f'ing it up. Even without AD they can beat any team not Nuggets and Bucks. They need AD to beat those 2 teams.

A lot of those games are winnable. Blazers haven't exactly lit it up after their fast start. The Warriors have been playing better but not great this season. The Pellies are 4-6 in their last 10, and they play 3 times. Thunder is playing better but is similar overall the Lakers. Knicks and Pacers are home are winnable. The Clippers have had their number, but they are 2-8 in their last 10.

This team has issues, but they will win some of those games. I mean they are 6-4 in their last 10. And after the 2-10 start they are 18-14. That is largely on the backs of their stars, but they aren't going to lose every match up to any team at or near .500. They've been without Reaves, Walker, and AD for a while now. Those guys should be returning during that stretch.

Assuming AD doesn't play in any of these games, Lakers were a coinflip to win against 76ers and Dallas two games ago. These teams aren't much better than those two teams. I'd say it's a coinflip every game so 12-11 seems reasonable.

I'll guess we'll go 11-13 during this stretch.

Don't ask me who we'll beat. We've beaten the Bucks and the Nuggets, and we lost to the Raptors and the Hornets, so the outcome of any specific game is always in doubt.

The X factor is if and when AD comes back, and how he plays.

We're gonna have AD for 18+ games on this stretch right? They better be over .500. There aren't many games left afterwards.

This is not the same Lakers that started the season. They are 18-14 the last 32 games and big part of it is they win even without AD.
If not for the refs mistake on Mavs and Sixers they could have been inside the top 10 already (22-22) and enjoying a 3 game winning streak.

I think they have 50% chance on Winnables and 75% on W.

14-11

but I think they will be better assuming Bron will continue how he is playing currently and AD returns. Don't worry about B2B, Bron will play the 2nd game of B2B specially against weak teams.

You seem confident, actually way over confident for a team who is 4 games below 500 and are as inconsistent as the bottom feeders in the NBA

Assuming no further injuries and/or disruptions: 25 games, just below .500 ball against average-to-good teams => 12 wins

Almost every game they’ve played this season has been winnable. It’s very rare that they have a game where they look overmatched or the other team is just on fire. No matter who they play, they’re going to be in a close game in the 4th quarter.

could have been 20-12 if not for the refs on Mavs and Sixers game.They should be 22-22 now and tied @ 7th spot with Warriors.

they are 18-14 last 32 games and could have been 20-12 if not for that f by refs on mavs and sixers. And most of those games are without AD. What are you smoking? It's not over confidence, that's a fact. They "can" beat anyteam other than Nuggets and Bucks.

It’s gonna take a lot for us to come away successful in this stretch, maybe we get 9-10 wins but I wouldn’t be surprised if it ends up worse
