Doesn't matter.

Denver lost and so did Portland so we're directly behind Houston now instead of going back and forth between 9 and 10M. We're 9th now, good spot to be, we just have to keep winning. 6 to 8 can keep losing and swapping wins and losses if we keep winning we catch up.

Correct but we need to win Sunday to put Dallas in our rearview mirrors, or else we will be back to 10th. Jesus Christ I hope they show up Sunday

Beating Portland and Dallas and Houston are big games.

Portland; done.
Dallas: next

Isn't it kind of ironic and poetic that in order to get to .500 we'd have to beat the teams directly behind us and directly in front of us? That's why these games are huge.

I have nothing against the OP but we should really be concerned with teams right in front of us not 3 spots ahead.

I think our best bet is getting ahead of Utah. Houston really looks good these past few games.

in the past few days, Houston and Utah both beat the Thunder, and the Warriors beat the Spurs...

Meanwhile, the nuggets lost to the Wizards...

Once the lakers get to .500 and go on a wiining streak from there, anything is possible...
We need everyone ahead of the lakers to struggle...

Thing is you have to assume what if Houston finishes 7th instead and the team above them is who falls to 9th. Think about it. Within 2 weeks the Warriors fell from 3rd to 6th. Its not out of the question that 6 7 and 8 can change as well.

This just shows how much better the west is than the east. The bucks are one game under .500 and there in the 8th seed.

A lot can happen over the next 10, but it's going to be tough.

Houston: @Was, Mil, @Orl, Dal, @Dal, @GS, @Pho, Pho, Min, GS.
Hope they lose a few easy ones, but they could potentially go 8-2 or something like that. [expletive].

Golden State: @Min, @Ind, @NY, @Bos, @Phi, Tor, Sac, Hou, Mil, NY.
Tough schedule with 3 b2b games (@NY, @Phi, Mil) They may win @Min, lose 4 in a row and end up 5-5, but with a bit of luck they could go 4-6 or even 3-7.

Utah: @Lac, Bos, Atl, Cha, @Mil, @Cle, @Chi, @NY, Det, @OKC.
Likely losses @LAC, Bos, @Chi, @NY, @OKC. With a bit of luck they go 4-6.

Lakers: @Dal, @Den, Min, Atl, @OKC, @NO, Tor, Chi, @Orl, @Atl.
Tough schedule as well with 3 b2b games (@Den, @NO, @Atl). I'd say we go 6-4 at best with losses @Den, @OKC, @Atl and at least one more, but unfortunately all of these games are tough.

Houston is hot, Golden State was free falling with 6 straight L's but they're back on their feet now it seems. Utah beat OKC TWICE. BS.

Oh well, just gotta keep winning games and hope somebody hits a rough 4 game losing streak or something.

Can't really worry about the teams ahead of the Lakers, they will either lose, or they won't. The Lakers need to just win at a good clip and let the rest work itself out. I think they play GS twice and Houston once as well, so there is a chance to pick up a game or two there.
