Teams from the past who are accustomed to be in the playoffs are outside looking in. But now with star players back, who do you see making the playoffs between these two squads?

Lakers. I'd rather see Dallas though for the Suns' sake.

The Lakers.

I still think they'll figure it out, at least to an extent. Dirk's health should help Dallas out, but there still isn't enough talent to make big enough of a run.

For as bad as LAL's defense has been, Dallas' has been just as bad, if not worse. That ain't changing.

Lakers

You can talk all you want about LA's defense, but Houston isnt very good defensively either. If they didnt have Asik they would probably be the worst in the league by a mile.

Mavericks and Lakers will grab the 7th and 8th seeds.

Houston and Utah will get bounced out.

Both teams are on nice little winning streaks and they look like they're starting to figure things out.

I just don't see the T-Wolves, Rockets, Utah, or the Blazers making it over these two teams... LA and Dallas have way better teams and there's still like 45 games left!!.... There's a reason you play all 82 games.... There's plenty of time.

Houston also hasn't had to go through any injuries, which usually come, unless you are Phoenix.

lol. You can tell that most of the people who frequent the NBA forum are just bitter that their teams are ****in losers and pathetic. Teams like the Magic, Clippers, Timberwolves, Kings, Warriors, the list goes on and on. Its easy for you to hate the lakers. But i will guarantee you this, when the Lakers do in fact make the playoffs, I will be much more obnoxious in the NBA forum and cockier than ever. When the Lakers do in fact win a chip, I will probably be perma banned for being a ridiculous *******. And dont start telling me how the Clippers are doing good this year, or the Warriors. Whatever, your teams are losers. The Heat will be the same way once Lebron goes back to Cleveland. So keep hatin, your all Trolls....

Macs are on a 4 game winning stream with Dirk still not even 100 % yet

We are finally figuring things out, and we are only 4 games behind 8th seed with 40 games to go

and the Rockets have also had a brutal schedule, IIRC the 3rd most difficult in SOS. I hope neither make it.

A LAC vs LAL and Dallas vs OKC in round 1 would be tight. Would remind me of Utah vs Houston 1998 and Utah didn't want them in round 1.

6 back to backs and 2 sets of 4 games in 5 nights and 12 of 17 games on the Road in January.

21 back to backs this season (9 teams have 22 back to backs) vs 13 back to backs for Orlando, 15 for OKC, and 16 for the Lakers, Dallas and Miami (How did THAT happen?).

Wages of Wins rates them as the 3rd toughest schedule through December, and 6th toughest schedule for the rest of the season.

Honestly, it's amazing they're over .500 at all.

I think Dallas has a slight edge due to their ability to make a big splash at the deadline.

That being said, the best thing for Dallas would be to miss the playoffs.

I think they both make it. None of the teams toward the bottom of the pack are that impressive. Throw into the mix Curry's propensity for injuries in Golden State and it's wide open. If you can string a good run of wins over 20 games, like a 15 and 5 run, you're definitely in the game.......
