PostPosted: Sun Nov 13, 2022 10:11 pm    Post subject: The Next 7 Games ……

……. is what remains of November. Fortunately our next game is not until Friday, November 18th. Reinforcements by way of Lebron, Schroder and Bryant should be arriving by that time which is fantastic.

- 18th vs Pistons
- 20th vs Spurs
- 22nd @ Suns
- 25th @ Spurs
- 26th @ Spurs
- 28th vs Pacers
- 30th vs Blazers

We need to try to go at least 5-2 over this stretch. I know that sounds overly optimistic, but with a healthy squad, and a more favourable schedule than what we have played thus far, it can be done.

Would love to be no worse than 8-12 heading into December.

Do you believe we can do it?

Yes, AD looks like he has find that dominance and having others coming back should give us a good boost.

Yep, we just need as much NBA caliber talent as we can muster.

If they put LBJ on a minutes restriction like Kawhi, I think we can do better.

We didn't have the third quarter let down the last two games and it's because there was more energy.

LBJ is just getting old... and it's not a good idea to let him play so many minutes.

Let AD and Russ (as well as Lonnie and Reaves) carry us through the first three quarters and let LBJ play the fourth.

He's going to break the record anyway... so don't let him demand minutes he can't handle any more.

DS replacing Nunn, Bryant bringing needed size and obv LeBron returning makes 5-2 really possible. We dont have any error margin anymore, if we stay healty and our rotations gets better we may even beat Blazers and make it 6-1.

Easiest stretch of the schedule IMO. Will pretty much determine how the rest of the season will go.

I don’t think we can go 3-0 against Popp’s Spurs. Suns and Portland will be tough games. We could win one, but could lose another winnable one. 4-3 would be a good achievement on this stretch.

Lakers really were fortunate yesterday with Brooklyn missing key players, Lakers are still in dire need of making trades, those Spurs match ups btw are gonna be real tough, the Spurs have always been a difficult match up for any Lakers team to deal with, that Nets win could have easily been the easiest game they will have for the rest of the month.

Yup. The biggest decline in his game is his stamina. When he starts shooting threes, it’s more than likely he’s out of gas. (On top of refs turning a blind eye to the hits he takes on his drives)

He shouldn’t play more than 30 min a game at this point

To play Mr. Positive role, if we didn’t collapsed in the last minute of the Portland and Sacramento games, we would’ve been 5-8 with injured Bron/DS/TB against all playoff teams. Ok, 5-8 still bad, nvm

5-8 means we get a chance to go above 500 in the next stretch, but now we are fighting for 500.

I'm gonna be Mr. Super Positive. If we stand pat, no trades.

- 18th vs Pistons (W)
- 20th vs Spurs (W)
- 22nd @ Suns (L)
- 25th @ Spurs (W)
- 26th @ Spurs (L)
- 28th vs Pacers (W)
- 30th vs Blazers (L)

4-3. 7-13.

If we do the Myles trade, and Dennis/TB/LBJ return.

- 18th vs Pistons (W)
- 20th vs Spurs (W)
- 22nd @ Suns (W)
- 25th @ Spurs (W)
- 26th @ Spurs (W)
- 28th vs Pacers (W)
- 30th vs Blazers (W)

10-10.

They should go 5-2 if they get star play from LeGroin and Deputy Davis.

2-5 is more likely though, because with this team it doesn’t seem to matter who the opponent is…

Since the Lakers were 2-10, 2-5 is an improvement...!

Three wins is a stretch, but might be possible...

After these next 7, our easier part of the schedule is done with. The schedule turns ugly between the first week of Dec. to the first week of Jan. You think things are bad now? This is nothing.

69 games to get 42 wins... 39-30... 6-4 6-4 6-4 5-5 6-4 5-5 5-4... play in... is that too much to ask

This is why you make the trade now if it's going to happen. I think we have a good idea of how much help this team needs, and what specific help it needs. Waiting until nearly December to then make a move is too late. Just frustrating to see a front office that is so inept and slow to make moves.

I thought I was misreading the schedule. They really got 5 days off.

A mini all-star break with only 13 games into games into the season.
