There isn't a chance in hell the Lakers finish ahead of Memphis or Denver so the 5 seed is not in play. I think Minnesota is much better than the Lakers too, but their luck has been twice as bad as the Lakers. If they get healthy they will be ahead of the Lakers as well IMO. I do have the Lakers in the playoffs but as the 8 seed and out in the 1st round.
    well okay thats your opinion but lakers luck has been worse than the wolves and when 100% healthy lakers >>> wolves.

    and nuggets have 17 losses lakers 21 so the 5th seed is still a possibility.

    For the Lakers to make the playoffs they need to go about 31-17 the rest of the way. People need to relax and let them get back into the playoff race before talking about 5 seed.

    I don't think the league will let them play 86 games but anythings possible.

    They probably need 46 wins. So they just need to go 29-15. Very doable if they stop getting hurt. As of now, they have played the 2nd toughest strength of schedule while missing key players. Stans to reason the road gets easier from here

    And I don't see the Lakers getting to the 5th seed. I see the Warriors dropping to 8. Lakers around 7

    I have to agree with this. Like Stu Lantz said last night. Stop trying to leapfrog all the way to the higher seeds, worry about the team in front of you first. We can think about seeds once we even get to that 8th seed, IF we get there.

    Not sure how you can say this, but again it's your opinion and you are entitled. Rubio missed as much time as Nash. Love has missed almost 20 games and Budinger has been out all season. Wolves have had far worse luck with injuries IMO. I don't see how can say the Lakers are better either. We haven't seen either team at full strength and the Wolves have had a better season until the last 4 games.

    Finally there are 6 teams between the Lakers and the 5th spot. I'm sure the team is focusing on passing teams like Minnesota and Houston and not Denver at this point.

    So is Haslem going to be starting now instead of Battier, moving LBJ back to SF or what?

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    The game against MIA will tell us a lot about how 'forreal' this Laker surge will be.
    The value of elite scoring ability, by Phil Jackson:

    "This is a guy, we recognize his talent, and his skill is the kind of skill and talent that gets you through playoff games where things get sticky, grind-out, and basketball becomes a force game and suddenly you need to have a player who has the capabilities of scoring with someone hanging on them in a situation thatís critical. Heís one of those players, one of the few players who can do that.Ē
