02/08/09 Sun- @ Cleveland- L
02/10/09 Tue- Oklahoma City- W
02/11/09 Wed- @ Utah- L
Total 18 Games, Prediction: 13 wins-5 losses....
I would be happy to split the Texas two step and the Orlando and Cavs, match up. After the Cleveland game, I feel that Lakers can beat the rest of their opponents up until the knicks. They almost beat us at home and Lakers only won by 2, that isn't a gimmie game. Cleveland is strong at home, hopefully Lakers can beat them and shake them up. Utah is classless and has a lot of Anemosity toward fish and the lakers, this one is a tossup IMO.

14-3; I think we'll lose at Houston, Boston, and Utah. I have a feeling we'll lose to one of the bad teams on our road trip too, though. ...we are the Lakers after all. lol

We haven't won in Cleveland in a couple years and they're doing great at home, but I think they're due for a loss.

we all know about our record against the cavs is poor but we also suck against charlotte. we always play s.hit against them which sucks. but we should still be able to win with this years squad

12-6

San Antonio
Cleveland
Charlotte
Memphis
Boston
Utah


Doubt we beat Cleveland or SAS 2 times in a row.
Doubt the refs let us win in Boston.
We suck major butt against Charlotte in recent history...Matt Carroll plays like an All0Star against us.
The Other Gasol is bound to light us up again...and we are bound to underestimate the Griz...again.
Utah holds it on us in Utah...can't figure it out...must be the water.

I agree. 40-12 at the break. I'll take it every time.

I think we lose to Houston because it's stupid Fan Night on NBATV and we always lose those games. And Memphis always seems able to steal one from us, so we'll probably lose that game too. Other than that a loss is gonna come at the end of a little win streak, wherever that win streak happens, because we haven't been able to keep a high level intensity for weeks at a time. Cleveland always plays us well too. I'll take a 13-5 record for the rest of the way as a safe bet but we have the potential to do a lot better.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

The only problem is that we are dealing with injuries to 3 players in the rotation, so there will be nights when Kobe might have to carry too big of a load and Fish is already playing too many minutes. Losing 3 rotation players is significant for any team and to play more than .600 ball, which is 11-7, is even respectable. On the flip side, the only starter who is down is Luke and he is our 5th option anyway. If Trevor continues balling and Sasha shoots more consistently, anything is possible between now and the all-star break.
