That is when the Lakers play the Celtics in Boston. The Lakers have a stretch of very beatable teams if they continue to play like they are now...they have the Hornets, Suns, Timberwolves (without Love), Pistons, Nets, then the Celtics.
If they can go on a streak, by the time they get to Rondo-less Boston...a win will put them back at a .500 winning percentage. It is a whole new season then with the Heat and Clippers coming up soon afterwards. Even though they are going on the road, the Lakers need to take advantage of their opponents...these are the games to dig out of the hole.
