    The Lakers have lost to the Timberwolves three out of four this year.

    Stephen A either hates white players or hates Luka in particular I’m not sure. But it is insane

    I believe these talking heads actually believe this nonsense. They just got beaten again. The Timberwolves have the most complete bench.

    this is CRAZY the lakers are not a bigger threat than the timberwolves to the nuggets !!?!?!?!?? how delusional are they

    The Lakers WILL NOT make it out of the play-in game!

    Lol all you lakers haters they was in the same position last year and went to conf finals hell yea they talk about them everyday they not a regular 8th seed😂😂😂😂😂😂

    For me the clippers are the most dangerous team to face in this playoffs.. you do not want to face them in these playoffs especially if their core is healthy

  15. @0168196250

    April 8, 2024 at 8:44 pm

    I think lakers purposely wants that 9th spot so they can avoid Denver. It’s in their hand they want to be 8th or 7th spot so long as they win the 1st playin against warriors. 😂.

  16. @isaacryan1432

    April 8, 2024 at 8:46 pm

    Tbh where tf are the warriors credit?????? Klay Thompson playing like prime Klay!!!

    Luka is a product of Lebron basketball like Kobe was to MJ

  18. @SmittyWitTheVibes

    April 8, 2024 at 9:17 pm

    The Mavericks are the biggest threat to the Denver Nuggets this post season (provided they’re healthy) & I’m a LeBron fan.

    There is no NBA Comeback Player of the Year Award. There was one from 1981 to 1986 but Stephen A is giving out awards that don’t exist

    IF: LAL 3-0
    THEN: SAC 2-2; NOP 2-2; PHX 2-2;  
     
    LAL 2-1
    SAC 1-3; NOP 1-3; PHX 1-3;
     
    LAL 1-2
    SAC 0-4; NOP 0-4; PHX 0-4
     
    *LAL own tiebreaker over PHX, lead NOP 2-1 (April 14 H2H to decide)
    **DAL + SAC own tiebreaker over LAL

    It’s ok if Clippers loses both times to Phoenix. Need to keep the Lakers in the 8/9/10 spot and then hope they get Sacramento in the play-in.

    Clippers should clinch 4th seed with a win against Utah.

    #4 Clippers’ (50-28) last 4
    @ Phoenix
    Phoenix
    Utah
    Houston

    We can win Utah and Houston since Houston doesn’t care anymore since they’re officially eliminated from the play-in. If let’s say Dallas doesn’t lose any of the last 4, then we need to win twice to clinch 4th.

    #5 Dallas’ (48-30) last 4
    @ Charlotte
    @ Miami
    Detroit
    @ OKC

    We need Dallas to lose to Miami or OKC. But I’m not sure OKC will take it seriously. I think OKC wants to be 3rd. If Dallas loses one more time, all Clippers needs to do is win one more time to clinch 4th. We own the tiebreaker over them.

    Must keep the Lakers in the play-in. Lakers with only 3 games left and the best they can finish if they won all 3 is 48 wins. Those other teams above them hold tiebreakers and just need to reach 48. But I think the one the Lakers can catch for 8th is New Orleans.

    #6 Suns’ (46-32) last 4
    Clippers
    @ Clippers
    @ Sacramento
    @ Minnesota

    I think Clippers should let Suns win the next two games against us. I don’t want Lakers to catch the Suns. Clippers can afford to rest Kawhi until the playoffs.

    #7 Pelicans’ (46-32) last 4
    @ Portland
    @ Sacramento
    @ Golden State
    Lakers

    #8 Kings’ (45-33) last 4
    @ OKC
    New Orleans
    Phoenix
    Portland

    Key for most of these teams from 6th to 8th is to win at least 2-3 and get to 48 wins to stay above the Lakers.

    #9 Lakers’ (45-34) last 3
    vs Golden State
    @ Memphis
    @ New Orleans

    Warriors needs to win tomorrow…

    #10 Warriors’ (43-35) last 4
    @ Lakers
    @ Portland
    New Orleans
    Utah

    If let’s say Warriors wins tomorrow against the Lakers, the highest the Lakers can reach is 47 wins. It’s still very possible Lakers can be pushed down to 10th as Warriors will hold the tiebreaker but Warriors must win every game which is realistic. Warriors can beat Portland and Utah.

    More realistic scenario is Lakers stay at 9th. Face Warriors and then we hope Kings loses their play-in against Pelicans, and then we get Kings vs. Lakers fighting for 8th. Kings gives a harder time to the Lakers than the Pelicans. Kings will be at home. But Pelicans looks to have the hardest schedule remaining.

    Dallas is not catching us. We will beat Utah and Houston if let’s say Dallas doesn’t lose to Miami and then Clippers are aware that OKC will rest their guys in their final game against Dallas. We need Phoenix to catch up and get 6th to force the Lakers in the play-in no matter what.

    They talking to a team that has a 50-50 chance of winning in play in tournament.. Hahaha…

    I really hate to say this, I mean I reeeeally hate it, but the Lakers can’t be counted out. Not can the Warriors. You gotta play the games! Bron is made for the playoffs.
