Houston at Utah tonight. Who are we rooting for? If Utah wins they will both have 13 losses.

Tough call. Both could easily string of bunch of wins. Utah with a easier schedule coming up and with the addition of Korver. Rockets because they have Harden and CP3. I guess I prefer the loss that would be more demoralizing for a team. I suppose that will be the Jazz

The western conference is starting to look really winnable this year.

Potential playoff matchups:

Golden State: Relies a lot on outside shooting and when teams try to live or die on threes against the Lakers, they die. Plus they love to party in LA.

Oklahoma City: Very weak shooting

Portland: Decent shooting team but they don't shoot well against this team and are losing the season series

Denver: HCA will be the key in this series

Dallas: Same writeup as Portland

Houston: Same writeup as Golden State

Utah: Tough on defense but they just won't be able to outscore the Lakers.

San Antonio: Yeah they're 1-3 against them but I think they'd beat them in a series. All of those games could have been wins.

Memphis: The ideal first round matchup. They completely own these guys.

Clippers: The Clippers look better this year but the Lakers will have seven home games in that series.

I'm not quite as confident as you are but I still do like our chances overall. It will really depend, in a lot of these matchups, on HCA. To me, GSW, Denver, Portland, OKC, and Utah worry me, in that order, if they have HCA. I also think that we lose against GSW even if we have HCA. Honestly though, I think that we could beat any other team in a 7 game set regardless of HCA. If Houston turns things around my opinion on them could change, I guess would be my other thought.

I agree, as things currently stand I take the Lakers confidently against any team other then GSW. I keep seeing constantly every single sports personality talk about how the lakers have no chance at a championship then they mention the Clippers, Nuggets, OKC etc. I honestly don't get that at all.

I think we even have a chance against GS though but it would obviously be a huge upset. With Curry ready to go down at any moment with his glass ankles/ legs and possible drama in the locker room along with the role players getting older there is def. much more of a question mark around them then there ever has been.

Personally I was assuming each team would be healthy. Of course, if GSW is banged up and we're fully healthy, I could see us beating them.
