lakers not only have to go on a tear, but need the rockets to falter pretty bad...i think rockets might actually have a chance to move up to 7th and possibly 6th.

The thing that's been hurting the Lakers the past few weeks is, everytime they win Houston seems to win as well and what's hurting Houston is, everytime the Lakers lose they lose also lol they've been at a stand still for a few weeks now.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

These Laker kids never cease to amuse me.

Lakers won't make the playoffs, granted. They are 5-5.5 games behind GS and Utah, and while GS had some tough games lately, their schedule will be easier than ever in March, and probably climb up in the rankings again to reclaim the 5th spot from Denver. Utah and Houston are in good shape, and play strong basketball right now.

But keep dreaming.
Everyone underrated Kobe's ego and just thought he would be Paul Pierce when Garnett and Allen joined, instead he went Black Mamba and turned Dwight into Kwame and Nash into Smush.

The thing that'll help the Rockets for the next few games is playing some eastern conference opponents. Barring any let downs, they can go on a streak of their own.

Lakers have 4 sets of back-to-backs and a ton of road games in March. I don't see them catching the 8th spot.

Mavs have won 12 of their last 18, Dirk is getting the rust off, and Carter is playing very well. They have a legit shot.

Look at the schedule: most of the teams they play are bad. They have a lot of winnable games.

Well Utah didn't make any major deadline moves so the strength of their home court record alone should get them in.

Looking at the Houston schedule to close out the season I can't see why they can't to 45 wins, which makes the Lakers' task that much tougher.

Who cares who they beat, all that matters to enter the PO is the record. No one will remember who they beat for the 25th win, nor the 35th.

We only have about ten winnable games we'll win 15 if we're lucky that's still 40 wins won't be enough

I've said it twice, and in every thread you seem to want "your" team to lose, who sounds more ridiculous. Every thread that involves the Mavs you have yet to say anything positive. For a fan you sure love to troll your own team.

This. The Lakers should be at death's door by now. Kobe's guarantee won't mean crap, if the refs don't help them out. Can't win one for Dr Buss, without external interference.

It's all up to the Rockets now, I think.
