Spurs
At Spurs
Grizz
At Heat
At Rockets
At Hornets
At Wiz
At Nets
Pelicans
GRIZZ
At Warriors
At Kings
Clippers
Kings
Thunder
Knicks
At Wolves
At Mavs
Pistons
At Jazz




Absolutely no gimmies

Wiz might be on track by then plus at their house... they only see Bron once

Knicks might be easy.

12 wins would be great ...10 is acceptable, and 8 is possible

10 would be great. That would pretty much solidify us a playoff spot at the very least.

12+ would be great!

 

Any word on Rondo's return?

We're over 500 now. No reason we should go 500 or worse during this stretch.

So once the season is halfway done, that's it, therre's no room for improving or getting worse?

 

Nonsense.

The 54 games that is left in the season actually matters than the next 20.

None the less, I see lakers winning between 10-15 games in the next 20 games.

November: 10-4

 

December:

vs. Dallas WIN

vs. Suns WIN

vs. Spurs WIN
@Spurs WIN
@Grizz (back to back) LOSS
vs. Heat WIN
@Rockets WIN
@Hornets WIN
@Wiz (back to back) WIN
@Nets WIN
vs. Pelicans WIN
vs. GRIZZ WIN
@Warriors LOSS
@Kings WIN
Clippers (back to back): WIN
Kings WIN

 

I'm an optimist. 16-2. 2-0 so far.

 

Realistically, we're playing 7 games vs. bad teams. Say we go 5-2 on those. Then 3-4 on the rest. That's 8-6 from here on out, which would put us at 10-6 for the month.

Spurs may be in a some kind of a funk, but I would never underestimate Pop who always seems to outcoach Luke. I see us splitting the 2 games vs the Spurs and losing to the Grizzlies on a second night of a B2B. Winning both Spurs games is a bit optimistic but not impossible.

As great as Pop is you can't coach up a flawed team but so far.  Spurs also haven't been great in some time.  People forget they get bounced in the 1st round vs the Clippers 3 years ago.  Every year it's the don't bet against the Spurs talk to see them fall flat in the playoffs vs somebody.

Pop ain’t gonna be on the floor and Lue won an nba championship as a coach. I’m not saying the spurs have no chance in these games. I’m saying players matter way way more than coaches in the current NBA. Hell, Luke precided over a huge portion of the greatest regular season in NBA history.

Ballpark figure, which I believe is not too far fetched.

November: 10-4

 

December:

vs. Dallas WIN

vs. Suns WIN

vs. Spurs WIN
@Spurs WIN LOSS - Lack of effort. DeRozan was good.
@Grizz (back to back) WIN - Grizzlies are also coming of a back-2-back playing the Pellies the night before.
vs. Heat WIN
@Rockets WIN
@Hornets WIN
@Wiz (back to back) WIN
@Nets WIN
vs. Pelicans WIN
vs. GRIZZ WIN
@Warriors WIN
@Kings WIN
Clippers (back to back): WIN
Kings WIN

 

I'm an optimist. 15-1. 3-1 so far.

 

Realistically, we're playing 7 games vs. bad teams. Say we go 5-2 on those. Then 3-4 on the rest. That's 8-6 from here on out, which would put us at 10-6 for the month.

I think we can count the Grizzlies win as one of the quality wins of the season.
