Default Lakers won 10 of their last 14

No one stopping them.This is for real now, without Pau Gasol . Once Gasol returns, this is a championship team. They are made for playoffs, not regular seasons.

The wins include top sides like Boston, OKC , Utah and Brooklyn.

If Lakers make playoffs and get Gasol back, no team can stop the Lakers. Only the Heat may have a chance.

I'm worried about the road games for the Lakers, especially since Gasol is out. Their next 2 are on the road and they can't be losing games right now. They literally need to keep this 10-4 (.714 W-L%) pace to make the playoffs. Even if they do, they can still miss the playoffs because Houston and Utah keep on winning games and are already above .500.

Not so fast. Lakers should have made a trade to shore up their defensive holes, if Gasol comes back the team will be a very tough out but they're still very vulnerable. I guess its the difference between having Steve blake as back up PG and Chris Duhon.

Why is it "news", and "noteworthy", that the Lakers are 10-4 in their past 14? 71% winning is impressive for a season, but hardly over a 14 game span. Small sample size. Is there a *yawn* emoticon?

As of now, they are 4.5 behind Utah for 7th seed, 3.5 behind Houston for 8th seed. Mavs are one behind the Lakers (5.5 behind Jazz, 4.5 behind Rockets), just for discussion sake.

Jazz Remainders: 27 (14 Home, 13 Away) vs. +.500: 15
Rockets Remainders: 25 (14 Home, 11 Away) vs. +.500: 9
Lakers Remainders: 26 (12 Home, 14 Away) vs. +.500: 12
Mavs Remainders: 28 (15 Home, 13 Away) vs. +.500: 16

Lakers play the most road games/least home games and have a good amount of +.500 teams left. Will definitely be a uphill battle if they want to make the postseason.

This year's Lakers are the most overrated lottery team of all-time

At this point it's not a matter of how many games LA wins, but how many Houston and Utah loses.

They won against POR (25-30), BOS (29-26), PHO (18-36), CHA (13-42), BKN (33-23), DET (22-35), MIN (20-32), NOH (19-37), OKC (40-15), UTA (31-24)

If my calc isn't failing me...

Average win% = .457% and to be honest, OKC, BKN and UTA are the quality wins here. Rest are "meh" or "Should have won either way". If you take the OKC and BKN wins out, you've got a 8 game winning streak against teams with average winning % of .401% and that's BOS, UTA and maybe POR keeping it at around that mark. Rest are pulling it down.

They lost against LAC (39-18), MIA (38-14), BOS (29-26), PHO (18-36)

Average win% = .566% and if you remove PHO, who they shouldn't lose to, it goes up to .661%

In short, they've been winning against teams they should win, losing to good teams and getting an occasional quality win.

Nothing to brag about. It's the least they could do with the team they've put together.
