10 games remaining: 6 at home, 4 on the road. We gotta win at least 5 in LA and then try to steal 1 or 2 on the road. In fact, 7 out of the 8 games we have in April will take place in Los Angeles. If we win 7 games, we will make the playoffs. GO LAKERS!

We have to go perfect at home period. Protect your homecourt or you don't deserve to make the playoffs. You can thank the Washington loss for that

I'm still much more worried about Utah than Dallas. Utah now has the edge for the playoff spot if they go even with the Lakers the rest of the way and their schedule is easier than the Lakers' going forward. Dallas still has a tough schedule and the Lakers can still get the tiebreaker from them.

Loss against the Bucks.

Just got home. When I left the bench had cut it to 2 and 1 and Kobe and Gasol came in and I had to leave.

So aside from screaming to leave in Jamison I came to the conclusion that either the ball would keep moving and it'd be close, or the ball would stop, go to Kobe and our interior defense would struggle and we'd lose by 20.


Seems the latter was correct.

Gonna have to count on Dallas to lose to Indiana and Utah to lose to Portland now.

I'am tired of complaining and [expletive]ing and everything else with this team. Clearly this team is very tired and so are the fans. I honestly don't give a [expletive] at this point no more.

I just don't see how the Lakers do well next month when they haven't done well in this stretch.

 

It seems like new problem arises  just as others are being fixed. Gasol played well this game, and the Lakers still lose.

Gasol played ok.

Obviously not defensively.

But in my opinion Jamison should have stayed in him and blake and dwight helped us close that gap.

Jamison should have stayed in and Gasol should have stayed on the bench with his dead legs. But alas.

Every other team is hurting too, I dont care about reputation, we have to make the playoffs and Im confident we will. Lots of home games left, guys like Blake, Meeks and Clark play much better at home than on the road. We still gotta win games but have faith.

Not I, its painful enough in the regular season, there would have to be" the proverbial switch " and someone is asleep not to have thrown it already. lol. Sad no draft picks either, so plan on trades to get younger and better. I would have traded Howard as there is no sign of him signing and limited effectiveness on either end not the hero you all hoped for. He isn't losing it by himself but isn't winning any friends either, they ( the rest of the team) need to learn to play the right way, assuming he means go to him, I didn't see him demanding the rock, sorry but I only have a 60" tv, did I miss that?

@LakersReporter
In LAL's race with UTA, they have to lose at least 1 fewer game (Jazz have tiebreaker). So if Jazz go 6-4, LAL has to go 6-3.

I'm more scared of Dallas

Great owner
Good coach
Great player
Solid role players

They won't win it all with kaman and Elton brand, but with mayo, and collision they have young guards

Jazz don't have a pg
