Minnesota is the worst team the Lakers will face in the trip. They've lost like 11 out of 13 and the Lakers have beaten them about 20 times in a row.This is a win, because Phoenix is garbage.
But anyone who is feeling optimistic after last night's game is just fooling themselves. I didn't see the comeback by the Pelicans because at 98-80 I switched over to the hockey game, figuring it was over. I should have known better. I have no idea how a team with this much talent gets outscored 21-4 at home to a shitty team from 6 minutes to go in the game to the last minute.
The Lakers are playing better but they obviously still have issues. I think they will do 4-3 on the Grammy road trip but I may also be fooling myself a bit...they are ****ing terrible on the road this season and the only thing that gives me optimism this time around is that there are a bunch of cream puffs on this road trip and the Celtics are without Rondo.
Even so I don't think they beat Minnesota, Brooklyn, or Miami. So they better not sleep walk in either Phoenix, Detroit, Boston, or Charlotte.
