    Lakers Record at the End of January

    The lakers have finally put a string of consecutive wins together and seem to be playing better than before. That being said, what do you predict their record will be by the end of January?

    Their schedule is :

    vs NY Knicks
    @ Denver
    vs Portland
    vs Philadelphia
    @ LA Clippers
    vs Denver
    @ Houston
    @ San Antonio
    vs OKC
    vs Cleveland
    vs Milwakee
    vs Miami
    @ Toronto
    @ Chicago
    @ Memphis
    vs Utah
    vs OKC
    vs New Orleans
    @ Phoenix

    if they click, like I have a feeling they're starting to i have a feeling they can go 16-3, this teams about to turn a corner. That 4th quarter at golden state may have been the turning point for this season.

    There are 19 games in your list. If the Lakers are getting serious and they continue to get healthier I think there are 11 games the team should win.

    @ Denver
    vs Portland
    vs Philadelphia
    vs Denver
    @ Houston
    vs Cleveland
    vs Milwakee
    @ Toronto
    vs Utah
    vs New Orleans
    @ Phoenix

    My hope would be that we win 9 of those games, and lose none of them badly.

    The other 8 games are all tests of one kind or another.

    vs NY Knicks
    @ LA Clippers
    @ San Antonio
    vs OKC
    vs Miami
    @ Chicago
    @ Memphis
    vs OKC

    My hope would be that we could win four of these -- and I don't care which four. A .500 record against talent would be a huge step for this roster right now.

    So...if we're lucky, work hard, and take defense seriously, I'm looking at the Lakers going 13-6 over this stretch, which would give us a record of 26 and 20 at the end of January.

    That would be a 56.5% winning percentage, currently good for 6th place in the western conference.

    We are 13-14 right now right?

    By the end of January we play 19 more games I say we lose 4 of those!
    So we will be 28-18 IMO! Lakers lets go!!!

    Love him or hate him, call him overrated, a punk, chump, and whatever blasphemy you people speak, fact of the matter is there is no denying he's the best of his generation and will go down as a top 5 player ever...what he has done for the NBA is amazing he's the biggest name in basketball all around the world and his chase for number 6 continues! All that matters though to us Laker fans is #17! Lakersnation! #16to17

    I agree with basically all of this. Except, I just have a bad feeling about the Denver road game. They always give us a fight over there. But yes, if we play to our potential we should win. However, that is a big if.

    0-19 in that stretch.

    Dwight gets traded back to Orlando, Pau back to Memphis, Nash back to Phoenix, Kobe to the Bobcats.

    Lakers still manage to win the championship this year

    This summary about the team is spot-on:

    How close are the Los Angeles Lakers to a breakthrough?
    The Lakers now have their four stars on the floor together for the first time since October. Let's say they hold their home court against the Knicks on Tuesday. And letís say Dwight Howard continues to build strength, as does the defense, and the offense, already ranked fifth in efficiency, starts operating as the lethal machine it was designed to be, and the wins start to pile up.

    Thatís an entirely conceivable chain of events, but itís no lock, either. The Lakers still feature a core of players who like to work with the basketball operating in a system that prefers they pass or shoot instantly. Success will require some compromise, but any offensive philosophical differences will likely resolve themselves -- thereís too much talent. The Lakersí prospects hinge primarily on a willingness to play defense. Howard didnít have any perimeter stoppers in front of him in Orlando, but anchored a top defensive unit. The Lakers can play that brand of defense if Howard is up to the task, the other starters and the coaching staff apply their wits, and the second unit makes guarding opponents its mission.

    If those scenarios shake out and the Lakers are playing some of the best basketball in the league headed into the All-Star break, does the early-season turmoil get summarily dismissed as old news?

    It's all about the defense, and about playing team ball.

    Anybody who's not defending or sharing the ball is killing this team.

    Anybody.
