I see Bulls by 10 but could also see LA winning, if we see bad rotations again then I think we have our answer on the direction of the team.

Yeah, we have to lose this game tonight for various reasons (tank seeding, not helping Boston/Philly get better pick etc). Wish Lonzo was playing tonight but hopefully they have a couple of players with career nights.

I also hope that Fred manages minutes of Lopez/Holiday and don't play Lavine more than 25 minutes. Find a way to lose please.
Also, what are the Gar/Pax are doing? We need trades soon and I mean like yesterday.

Fred is in on the tank. He pulling guys that starts getting winning going. So I see a loss coming. Quite a bit of losses actually.

This would be a key game to drop for a team looking to competently tank, which makes me suspect the Bulls will win this on big nights from Lopez and Holiday.

Very important night for the tank tonight. A lot of teams around us in the tank race are playing: Memphis, Phoenix, Dallas, the Lakers, and Brooklyn. Let's see what the money men in Vegas say.

Memphis play the Clippers at home, who are on a 3-game losing streak. Clips are favored by 3pts.
Phoenix play the Knicks at home, and they're favored by 1pt.
Brooklyn play in Milwaukee, MKE a 6.5pt favorite.

As for us, we're favored by 4 points :-?

If the stars are aligned: we lose while Memphis, Brooklyn, and Phoenix win, we could crack Top 5 in the Tankathon by the end of the night. Inversely, if we win and all those other teams lose, we could find ourselves slide all the way to #9.

Even with a lot of Grant on the floor, I expect a relatively easy win. We're due for our weekly "this team is totally awesome!" kind of game.

It would be a 'good' loss if it happens, to be sure. I really don't see us catching up to the worst four teams, but I think the tank race between the other 5 teams in the worst 10 is still up for grabs. 1-4 picks would be terrific, but I highly doubt we get them. 5 or 6 would be really good, and reachable. 7-9 is where I expect to fall, and will be a bit sad to see if #5 is only a loss away.

We really need to lose tonight as after this game we play Bucks (very likely loss with their new coach and a honeymoon period), then Blazers and Clippers on the road. By that time it will be almost the trade deadline and already be around bottom 3 to 5 record wise.

That would be so good.

Was looking forward to Dunn vs Lonzo. Now neither are playing. Image
-- 1+ game is more than a big enough sample size

—Jazz 58 win 2 seed, Nuggets 55 win 3 seed, rockets 4-5 seed at best.
—Bulls 44 win 8 seed in the east
—wolves bottom 3 west team with mavs and grizz.

Lakers are almost a .500 team in terms of point differential when Zo plays. I believe it's -0.8 a game. Without him, we are approximately a -9.0. Huge difference. Lakers haven't won a game on the road without Zo but a 3 game win streak gives this team some hope to pull it out tonight. Also, in this 3 game win streak, Ennis's minutes have been reduced significantly and Caruso has been the PG leader in minutes which has helped. Ennis doesn't even belong in the G League, he's LA Fitness material.
