Re: Tough 5 game stretch coming up

I'm sorry, I have zero confidence in this team's ability to play as a team.

I can't see them beating any of those teams. We just lost to ****ing Philadelphia, for Chrissake. And look at all the other teams we have played poorly against and have lost to.

We beat Charlotte by 1 ****ing point. And were down to them like 18 points? I can't believe a team with all this talent plays so poorly.

2-3... This team can't seem to get over .500.

Re: Tough 5 game stretch coming up

1-4

Two of the losses are blowouts - clippers and thunder.

Re: Tough 5 game stretch coming up

This road trip will most likely be a measurement for management, in regard to if any roster moves need to be made. If the team goes 1-4 or 0-5, I could very well see some adjustments being made sooner rather than later. These are practically all the teams that will be in the Western Conference playoffs.

Re: Tough 5 game stretch coming up

The Clippers have now lost two in a row convincingly. They've looked bad defensively in both games. Might be the perfect time for the Lakers to catch them.

Re: Tough 5 game stretch coming up

I am very concerned about this stretch of games. Even if we play okay, and finish 2-3, we will be 2 games under .500, 36 games into the season. We have already had the easy part of the season. How is anyone not concerned? We are not very good right now, have not been good all season. What will change?

Re: Tough 5 game stretch coming up

Isn't 5-0 the best case scenario? The games are all winnable.

I'm not concerned at all. I have already accepted this team's fate. They just aren't very good.

This isn't those 11-19 Lakers in 2002-03 that turned it around to go 39-13 the home stretch for a nice 50-32 record...and Rick Fox ain't walking through that door.

Good. Because you said those 11-19 lakers weren't making the playoffs unless they traded for youth!

Re: Tough 5 game stretch coming up

I do not think the team is too old. I think they need to have better defensive rotations. There is just no team defense right now. Boxing out is not a young mans gane, its just fundamentals. Helping the helper is another of our big problems.

But we are running out of time. Changes need to start now.

I'm going 3-2 with losses @ San Antonio and @ Clippers.
