    Vaccine? Do they quarantine based upon contact tracing even if vaccinated? What are the protocols for this? Just curious. Stuff like this could make a huge difference in the playoffs.

    Found a German Tweet quoting Schroeder as saying that the entire Lakers team is vaccinated except Dennis and LeBron.

    BTW. The Lakers are 0-5 without Schroeder.

    How far down in the standings will they fall?

    Fantasy perhaps, but would be nice if they ended up in the play in and got knocked out

    Westbrook posted 14/21/24 on eight shots in the Wizards' 154-141 win over Indiana earlier today.

    Kind of don't want the Lakers to fall to 7 or 8 honestly. With our luck we would draw them in the first round. Of course if they don't improve quickly we could probably beat them, but I would prefer to avoid having to find out in the first round.

    When you say this, where are you assuming we'll finish given that 1st or 2nd appear equally likely but 3rd or 4th aren't out of the question either?

    A Lakers win is never good!

    It might benefit the Suns, but, it's never good. :mad:

    As much as I have not liked the guy, that is an amazing accomplishment. 20 assists in a game is so difficult to accomplish.

    We’d have to really collapse to end up 3/4 at this point, up 4 games on each with 8 to go.

    It's unlikely (hopefully very unlikely) but I don't think it would require an actual collapse as much as it would require a very strong finish from Denver or LAC (and both teams have the tiebreaker against us).

    I expect us to finish 2nd but if you look at our schedule we have 7 games remaining that we could lose with less than our best effort. I'm not even talking about the Brooklyn giveaway or a half-hearted effort like the one that led to a loss in Detroit. We're looking at Atlanta (2nd night of a b2b), New York, LAL, Golden State, Portland and back to back games in San Antonio. Not only are we about to play 8 games in 13 days, all but 2 of those games are on the orad.

    We would have to go .500 or worse. Thats a collapse.
