    Lakersí Chase For The Best Record In The NBA

    There are some things left on the Lakers bucket list for the season.

    They got the proverbial monkey off their back by beating both the Bucks and Clippers this weekend. The only 2 teams the Lakers havenít beat this season are the Raptors (1 game left @ TOR) and the Pacers (1 game left at home).

    But ... with the recent injury to Giannis, and as LeBron is making the push for another league MVP ... the Lakers are just 2 back in the loss column of the Bucks. The Lakers and Bucks tied the regular season series 1-1.

    Right now:

    Milwaukee Bucks: 53-12

    17 games remaining
    11 of them against current playoff seeded teams
    9 of those 11 games are teams at or above .500
    10 games at home and 7 games on the road
    1 set of a back-to-back remaining


    Los Angeles Lakers: 49-14

    19 games remaining
    8 of them against current playoff seeded teams
    All 8 are teams at or above .500
    10 games at home and 9 games on the road
    4 sets of a back-to-back remaining
    1 set of a back-to-back-to-back remaining

    Im sure the Lakers will start load managing AD and Bron while the Bucks will be cautious with Giannisí injury, but still lots to play for in terms of making a push for the best overall record in the NBA!

    Interesting decision on the part of the HC.

    Either you keep building on team chemistry and maintain the sharpness of your core guys or.... keep everyone healthy for the playoffs. A bit risky though. They could show signs of rust in the first round. To me health is key after seeing what happened to the Warriors last year vs TOR.

    People can say what they want but absolutely no way Kawhi and co. wouldve beaten a fully healthy super team.

    Not with Giannis out.. but yea it's gona be tight. Rather the series start here than Milwaukee. If you could get the easier path to the best record, go for it otherwise.. just rest the guys

    It will help no doubt but that last game of the triple header could be an auto loss. You can count on our main guys not playing in that game. It also depends where the Clippers are by then. If they need a win or a loss for their preferred seeding
