Houston and Portland both lost tonight.
Houston have lost 7 in a row, Portland 5, and they're both at .500.
The Jazz won, unfortunately.

Tonight it's the Raptors, which is a must win and tomorrow we play @ Chicago, who are without Luol Deng.

These bottom tier "playoff" teams are making it very easy for us lately. All we need to do is win games to be back in the playoff talks.

Tomorrow (Today) we need to win vs the Raptors and it would be convenient if the Nuggets lost to the Thunder.

I'll take a look again at this topic when the Lakers have a 10-game winning streak, but I am not sure if it will take place in 2013, 2014 or 2015.

What's your obsession with the 10-game winning streak?

If the Lakers continue playing as they're now, struggling against scrub teams and pathetic defense, then we can forget about the playoffs.

The season isn't over. Two games out with half the season left is plenty of time.

Can the team play well enough to get into the playoffs is the issue. After today, my confidence in this team is at an all time low.

Teams are basically giving us a playoff spot and the team is not taking advantage.

It's too late now. Even if we do make the playoffs we would have a disadvantage with the homecourt advantage all the way.

We are fighting for the playoffs, not home court advantage.

HCA is over, making the playoffs is not.

agree it would take something extreme for us to win like pau becoming dominant or our bench all of a sudden clicking and dominating.

Getting into playoffs with some luck is one thing, winning championship another. This team is not a championship caliber team. We are talking about winning 16 games in matchups we are not favored. Yeah, no.
