View Full Version : Will Lakers end up with only 50 wins? Thus far, 3rd easiest schedule

The Lakers are having a bunch of problems and are 35-16 with just the league's third easiest schedule at .478 win percentage.

That means the rest of the teams they are playing probably have a combined .600 win percentage.

Is it unreasonable to say the Lakers will end up going 15-16 in their last 31 games?

They play the Spurs twice, the Heat, the Celtics, the Magic twice, the Mavs twice, the Thunder twice, the Hawks twice, Blazers twice, Hornets, Jazz twice, the Nuggets and the Knicks.

That's 16 games against elite teams, with either the Nuggets or Knicks being elite (whoever has Melo) and three games against very good teams. Not to mention they play the Clippers twice, the Suns and the Kings, teams that have already beaten them. I definitely think they are headed for 50 wins.

50 wins? not so sure.. that would mean they would probably fall off the top 5 out West and I just don't see that happening.

I see them ending up with a record of 55-27 -- realistically at least. There's no way that they will end up with only 50 wins. Though I am hoping for a record of at least 58-24. But if it does happen, that, they end up with only 50 wins...then whoa. Didn't they already defeat the Thunder twice this season?

They will be the 3rd seed at worst.

tbh i see them going 10-8 in their next 18 games. So yeah 50 is about right.

part of me says yes, they are not a top 3 team in the west with their play. But another part says they will put together a 20 game streak of domination.

Basically, until proven otherwise, the Lakers are simply the best team in the NBA. Obviously I hope they choke as hard as possible, I can't stand them, but I am not stupid enough to cancel them out.

Yeah it aint looking too good currently for the purple and gold.. And unfortunately it's not going to get any easier for them.. My guess is that they barely hit fiddy.. I wouldn't put money on that though.. :speechless:

Lakers will finish 58-24

I only see the Spurs, Celtics, Lakers, and Heat as the only elite teams, you know the teams that have won Ships in the last 5 years and have gotten only better? If you play in the East it's always an easy Schedule, Just look at the Cavs the past two years and same with Magic this year and Hawks( getting swept and blown out in all four games 2 years in a row. Also they struggle in the First round and barely win in 7 games against the Bucks who didn't have their best player Bogut and against the Heat where Dwayne Wade was playing terrible.)

It doesn't matter as long as they have a better record than C's Heat

Is there any doubt the Lakers are not going to end up in the Finals? They're still the favorites by far and remember "best season ever" so it's gotta be the Lakers and either Celtics or Heat in the East.
