I feel like we're playing Russian Roullete and managed to engage another empty chamber. The fact that Conley said on record recently that it's not that serious leads me to believe that Quin and upper management has decided to roll the dice to ensure that he and Mitchell are healthy for the playoffs. When you look at all the power stacked on the other side of the bracket, it's a dangerous game we are playing............................and yet one step closer to cashing in on that bet!!!
Yep it's a risk but it looks like we are going to cash out on it

Even if the Lakers win in OT, I don’t see them catching Portland. I think both Lakers and GSW go to the play-in and I’m not particularly enthused about either in the first round. I’d really like SAS or MEM.
Might just get San Antonio or memphis

If Lebron is healthy they won't need bats. That will be a conference finals level opponent. If you're not afraid of the lakers you're crazy imo. There is a reason they are the one team no one wants to play. Lebron and Davis will do whatever they want all series and they will get every call if it's cllose. You're going to have entire league and sports media setting up a heroic lakers topple 1 seed narrative. It'll be humiliating, and just our luck.
Jazz will hit their 20 threes per game on 40% shooting in 4 of the games and use that honecourt advantage

Okay, so there may be a reasonable path left for the Lakers to grab 6th. They need to win out, though (not in all scenarios, but any with a reasonable chance). They play Rockets, Pacers, and Pelicans. Portland would need to drop 2/3 out of us, Phoenix, and Denver remaining, which could be very possible. That or Dallas dropping 2/3 Pelicans, Raptors, and Timberwolves.
See, I'm going to cheer for this and BOTH Dallas and Portland are going to drop 2 out of 3. Lakers get the 5 seed. . .

Seriously though, AD played with pain all night. I'm not sure Lebron is going to be healthy, Schroeder has COVID, Caruso left the game with pain tonight and didn't return, and the Lakers really can't rest anyone because they are playing to avoid the play-in. They are going to need to put their achy *** joints on a plane and sleep in a hotel, unlike that bubble life where they got a couple months to rest before the games started. Lakers have pulled off a few wins late, but they have 2 road victories in the past month.

This looks nothing like the bubble. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see the Lakers fall against Phoenix, or even get hit hard by a motivated Grizzlies squad in the final play in game. They aren't healthy and are out of time.

Absolutely!!! Brooklyn has star power, but the Lakers are still the team to beat because they have proven chemistry and glue guys like KCP, Caruso, Kuzma and Shroder.

Lakers are NOT the team to beat. Neither AD or LeBron is anywhere near properly healthy and they’re running out of time.

In the playoffs I want nothing to do with Lebron or Curry, and anyone who does hasn’t been paying much attention to basketball the last decade. Unfortunately there is a good chance we will face one of them in the first round.

I understand the Warriors are without Klay and Lebron is not 100%, but the Warriors and Lebron have accounted for seven of the last nine nba champions and basically 99% of nba finals appearances.
