With Rondo out with the ACL injury and Phili getting Bynum back and only 2.5 games back of Boston for 8th, they could make a run at the spot. Boston's got pride, but they also have arthritis.

And the Lakers... Well, their not going to go on any 7,8.9 game win steaks any time soon.

This could be the first time since 1993 that both clubs go fishing early.

The Lakers have been getting raped all season long its about time they get a winning streak going. After all they have a 7 game road trip coming up where they will probably win 3 games at most if they play like this.

I still think they both make it.

UNLESS Boston does completely blow it up. They they try to hold serve this year they'll squeak in.

That's what Bos should do. Trade for Gortat and try to acquire Evans.

I love how you bet this idea when both teams are in the doghouse... Stop wasting everyone's time. And oh yea you will still be wrong ha.. Celts after their worst stretch of season still beat Heat today without Rondo. Sorry man you lose this bet.

Raptors recent stretch gives me more confidence than the Lakers recent stretch. Raptors have been very enjoyable to watch lately.

as bad as the Lakers have been, they are only 4 games out. Boston is not going to finish below .500 imo, unless they blow it up, or KG or Pierce go down. I think Rondo's value was overrated this season, and it won't take 48 wins out west to make it this year.

I think both still make it. And both get hammered round 1.

The East is too bad for the Celtics to miss the playoffs.

I think Ainge still believes that the C's can contend in the playoffs with their D, so I don't think he blows it up.

A lot of people are saying that the Lakers need to win 48 games to get in, so even if the Lakers play reasonably well for the rest of the year, they could still miss the playoffs.

That is because its routinely the number needed to get the 8th seed, but it won't be that high this year. 45 wins should do it.

The east is garbage and Lakers are not that far out. Both make it. Celtics get thrashed first round, Lakers pull first round upset.

Book it
