Lakers now have a better winning percentage than every non-play-off team in the Eastern Conference.

Understatement.  If we can win in DEN, we have a shot in every game we play from here on out.

Jazz up by 13 against grizzlies with 4 minutes to go. i know the grizzlies are tanking but seriously, today will be 16 straight losses. i don't think the sixers were that bad and they were shamelessly tanking. freaking ridiculous

 

Pelicans down like 8 with two minutes to go. playing without davis. they're going to lose most likely. 

 

clippers playing cleaveland. solid chance they lose tonight. 

 

don't care much about the blazers record, but hope they lose against the warriors.

did anyone read that bleacher report article about spurs possibly missing the playoffs?

 

http://bleacherrepor...ss-the-playoffs

 

crazy. consider this:

First, they have the league's toughest remaining schedule. Per Tankathon, these are the winning percentages of the unplayed opponents for each of the eight postseason challengers, ordered from toughest to easiest: 

  1. San Antonio Spurs, .580
  2. Oklahoma City Thunder, .559
  3. Portland Trail Blazers, .553
  4. New Orleans Pelicans, .552
  5. Los Angeles Clippers, .541
  6. Denver Nuggets, .506
  7. Minnesota Timberwolves, .495
  8. Utah Jazz, .485

The spurs are only two games ahead of the 10th seed.

so I'm thinking the Spurs and nuggets miss the playoffs. Jazz make it. then we need to beat the clippers to get that 8th seed

 

it's pretty ridiculous to say the spurs miss the playoffs but they've never been this weak before. if there were ever a season for them to miss it, it'd be this one. i like em, but they're in the way right now so Godspeed to the bottom of the rankings!!!

Two losses this week against play-off teams, when we couldn't get stops down the stretch.


Don't feed the trolls.

Injuries came at the worst possible time. We needed every possible weapon to compete with these playoff teams. I honestly can't see us making it. We have some tough games ahead ..

no playoffs.
We were estimated to hit 35 wins.
17 games left.
I would love to exceed that ... these next 3 games are gonna be rough

Cavs, Nugs, Warriors

I believe they finish at a .500 pace so about 8-9 more wins.

If we win 9 games we won’t finish .500
Gonna have to go 12-5 these last 17 🤔

Truthfully to really be in the playoffs you need the sixth seed or better, or you’re just the Washington Generals, imo better chance next season.
