I'm hoping Utah realize they got nothing to do with making the playoffs and trade Al Jeff & Millsap for draft picks.

We have 27 games left and Houston is up 3.5 in the standings. Can't say I'm the most confident of our chances right now. Every time they lose, we lose. Every time we win, they win...

Can someone post up the Lakers next 20 or how many games left. So we can predict which games they will win/lose. I want to see the Lakers in the Play Offs, cause I know this will make Kobe and D12 go ham. I really want to see Kobe vs LeBron.

Golden state is also in turmoil at the moment. So even if houston does get hot golden state may continue to crumble. Just gotta keep winning and get over that .500 mark. Good thing is lakers are 9th seed finally passing portland. 1 more seed up to go.

9th seed in the West now but still 3.5 games outside the 8th seed. 27 more games. Too bad HOU also won today. Trade deadline coming in a few hours. Should be interesting.

if lakers want to make the playoffs, houston are suposed to lose games like the one the won last night. if the win those, there is no option for the lakers. they woke up too late.

When are the teams official as in what time can players not be traded? I am assuming as of midnight, or am I wrong?

8th seed, HOU or LAL 

Post#163 » by StatAintLie » Fri Feb 22, 2013 5:46 am

The trade deadline passed and there is no trade associated with Lakers and for Rockets there is only a little change.

The most feasible plan for Lakers to make playoff is to beat Rockets and the next 10 games for each are essential.

For Rockets: the next 10 consists of 4 homes and 6 aways. The danger is on the away game against Nets and away game against Warriors. Other games are against Suns, Mavericks, Timberwolves, Wizards and Magic, which are relatively easy as those teams are falling this season. Personal predict: 7W3L or 5W5L.

For Lakers: the next 10 are tough. The toughest are away game against Thunders and Nuggets. Then for the home games against Hawks and Bulls and away game against Mavericks are also not 100% sure to win. Best prediction will be 8W2L or 5W5L.

If both teams get 5W5L, Lakers are still 1 behind Rockets. But after the 10 there are a bunch of home games for Rockets but a bunch of away game for Lakers. And the possible outcome is that Rockets win the most and Lakers win a few.

Or, HOU loses some games that are supposed to win, like the game against Magic and Wizards while LAL wins some of the games supposed to be lose, like the game against OKC.

So, based on the average performance of Lakers, Rockets and other Western teams, I dont think Lakers are able to make playoff.

The next 4 games will be vs.Portland, @Dallas, @Denver and vs.T'wolves. We don't have a choice but to go 3-1 or 4-0.

Just saw Houston's schedule. It's VERY easy. If we wanna go to the playoffs, we need to win tough tough games.

That game in Denver will be rough. but 3-1 is doable and necessary.

Houston still has to play a lot of games against the top of the west towards the end of the season which they haven't played real well against and they just changed their PF rotation, which may jack up that spacing they had. Harden and Lin have to play near perfect for them to win, I think they will struggle.

Utah is playing well and is deeper, their schedule is mixed, I don't know what to think of them right now. I was hoping they'd trade Millsap or Al Jeff and screw up their momentum but it didn't happen. I think we can catch them though

Golden State though is going to be in this fight too. 23 losses right now and they have a brutal stretch coming right now. They could easily loose 4 of the next 5.

If there are 3-4 teams all within like 2 games down the last 10 game stretch or so I'm confident that we will be able to pull it out.

Kobe and Co. needs to see how URGENT this is....


27 games left for lakers Utah and Houston

Currently utah and Houston winning at a .55-.6 clip.

Which means mathematically they will lose 11 out of 27 approx.

Now, we are 3 games back of Houston; 5 games back of Utah.

We need to lose 3 or 5 less than their 11 projected losses.

Which means we need to NOT lose more than SIX GAMES going rest of the way.


Mathematically this is a tough out.
We have a tough schedule (I don't care what others say). We are going to face
Portland
Denver on road
Dallas on road
Atlanta
Okc on road
Chicago
Atlanta on road
Indiana on road
Memphis
Clippers on road
Portland on road
San Antonio
Houston

These are all tough games.
Not even mentioning the fact that all the other teams we have to play like golden state and sacremento and new Orleans et al can be a loss if we don't come out right.



CAN WE DO THIS????



I hope Kobe and or any lakers read this and see the urgency.

It's good to see somebody's being realistic. We have 13 tough games left and can only afford to lose half of those max and that's assuming we don't lose any of our "easier" remaining games. It's definitely not going to be easy.

My guess is we'll lose 8 or 9 of out remaining games so hopefully we get a little help in the form of Houston or GS fail down the stretch.
