:D 45 games to go we can make a push for the post season. We just need to focus on our defense and protect the damn ball

Minny 16 - 18
Lakers 16 - 21

Currently behind 4 wins from # 8 seed (blazers).

Next games

Vs Mil - should be a win
vs heat - lose
vs raptors - win
vs bulls - win
vs memphis - win (trade rumors killing memphis now)
vs utah - win
vs okc - lose
vs no - win
vs suns - win
vs wolves - win

Minny and Utah might lose today.


vs Bulls is a lose. they're playing championship D lately


They still have no go to scorer. I'm more confident that we will beat them than Miami.

we gotta get in that 6-8 seed mix

no way we're catching 4-5th seed warriors and grizz, just too many losses piled up

ideally, i'd still prefer to stay on the clips/SA side of the draw instead of the thunder

unless of course, clips managed to take the 1st seed from the thunder, then 8th seed is the goal

I think 8th seed is the most we can hope.

I think the 7th seed is within reach too....there are 6 teams who I think we cannot catch at this point(LAC,SAS,OKC,MEM,GSW,DEN)

That being said,even if we do get in position for that 7th seed,if the Clippers finish 1st and OKC 2nd in the standings,I'd rather tank and get the 8 seed to avoid OKC in the first round

Woohoo! Dallas beats Houston!

I'm crazy for thinking this but I don't think catching GS is totally out of the question. They'll have a bad run at some point and I expect us to have 13-2 run or 17-3 run in us before the season ends. Assuming we can get and stay healthy..

I was just thinking Steph Curry's ankle seems awfully healthy this season and lo' he sprained his ankle :lol:

I'm inclined to agree, Memphis and Golden State will start to lose here and there and with Miami on the second nite of ab2b. I think if we win in a convincing fashion, I think it will give us enough momentum to get us on a run. I think we can round off 12-14 wins

The Wolves will probably lose to the Clips tonight so we'll gain some ground there. Does anyone know our tiebreaker status with Minnesota, Denver, Utah, Houston, and Portland?

This tread should be called The Suns wait for the Lakers lottery pick. Why did we not top 14 protect it. Nash is 39, not worth a top pick to give up.

I think the Warriors, Jazz, Rockets, Trail Blazers and Timberwolves will start to lose more and more games.

Warriors- Curry is out
Jazz- I don't know how to read this team, but I don't see them beating us out for a post season spot
Rockets- Harden is the loan star on this team
Trail Blazers- this team doesn't have enough legs to stay in the playoff hunt
Timberwolves- Pekovic, Love, Budinger and Roy are all out. no front line at all the Ls are already adding up

I wonder can we get the 6th seed

Raptors Sunday - need to capitalize on D12

If the Lakers keep playing like they have they should be able to win the next four games.

About a week ago, LA was 5 games back in the loss column from the 8th seed. Prior to the Miami game, LA was 2 games behind the 7th and 8th seed. Currently there behind 3 games.
