The Suns do not play the next two nights. Meanwhile, the Lakers have Memphis and Seattle, both teams we are more than capable of beating. If we do, we tie the Suns at 26 - 11 for a share of the top spot. All we have to do is win baby. Can we do it?

We might be tieing them for 2nd, since Dallas plays Sactown on the same day we play Seattle

Winning these next two games would be one step closer to winning the Pacific & guaranting a top seed...

Say we win our next two games...that will put us at 26-11...our next game is against Phoenix...

Say Phoenix beats the Clippers, who is looking for revenge from their last two back-to-back losses a couple of weeks ago...that would put Phoenix at 27-11...

After those two games by the Lakers & one by the Suns, the Lakers & Suns have yet another showdown...say we win our next two & beat the Suns again...that will put us at 27-11 & put the Suns at 27-12(if they beat the Clippers)...the Clippers game is away for the Suns & they play the Lakers at Staples also...they're also not back-to-back games...so Phoenix should be tired of being in LA...that is how we can overtake the Pacific Division...

Now we have to start thinking after Phoenix...we play Denver, San Antonio, & Dallas...Luckily, none of those games are back-to-back...

we just have to worry about the lakers games only!

If we lose today or tomorrow we drop to the 5th or 6th seed....

I have a bad feeling that todays game is going to be a hard one.....all the nba games are hard to win....I hope the lakers just play hard and get a win while kobe is still sick

Do the lakers get a special exempt, trophy, award or anything for being in 1st place even before we reach the halfway mark of the season? maybe we can save the printout of the standings then and paste it on our fridge

it won't really matter if they overtake the suns tomorrow, the day after or in to weeks. The important thing is they overtake them AFTER 82 games, I don't care if its the last day of the season, as long as they overtake the suns, and all of the other teams for that matter.

The head-to-head encounters only play a part if we end up in a tie with that particular team at the end of the regular season. the only sure advantage they will get is MENTAL. If they end up tied at the end, then head to head will play a factor.

If we lose today or tomorrow, we still have 45 games left. the playoffs doesnt start today or tomorrow.

Its a long road ahead guys... we've only just begun. a lot of hardwork is still needed. no one wins championships in january

Actually, the Lakers will be West's #2 tomorrow along with the division lead since we own the tiebreak vs. Phoenix.

The reason everybody gets so happy when we're in first or second is because our team has been a 7th or 8th seed team the last few year, and it really just makes us happy to see that we're doing good again.

I don't know if we can beat them, I hope we can beat Seattle, but come thursday I think it all depends on whether drew is back or not.

It seems weird right now...Bynum is out and we don't know what's gonna happen...remember last year...Bynum wasn't that big of a factor...how did we do...we got to a 26-13 record, with Smush Parker at the point...I'm not gonna expect the team to continue to get wins by 20+ points, but I will expect the team to keep on winning...this team can play .500 ball with Bynum out...that should be given...but while Bynum is out this team should play atleast .600 ball...if Bynum is gonna be out 8 weeks that means he will miss 27 games I believe...with a long road trip and all...I expect the Lakers to win 16 or 17 of the next 27 games...after that Bynum should be back...he can ease into the offense and by the time playoffs hit we better be back to the way we are playing right now...I'm not gonna give up on this team because Bynum is out...we still have lots of talent...Kobe, Fisher, Odom, Walton, Farmar, Turiaf, Ariza...and I'm hoping Sasha & Radman come back soon...they can both give us alot more depth and space the floor...let's not lose faith in our Lakers, but cheer them on and keep bragging about how good they are...if we are one of the best teams in the west then it shouldn't matter who we play in the 1st, 2nd, or WCF...if we are 7th or 8th seed again this year, well, that will just make Charles Barkley right about that...but you can guarantee Sir Charles won't be right about how the Lakers will do in the playoffs...the seasons not over until either the team is eliminated from playoff contention or if the Lakers are eliminated from the playoffs...let Phil Jackson, Kobe, & Fisher decide what to do...the have been through things like this before...Jackson will....

whats up with the #5 ranking in cnnsi power rankings? the celtics who lost back to back are still #1. While the pistons who lost 3 games last week and the hornets who the lakers whipped have a higher ranking. talk about being disrespected... hey marty burns, the lakers earned their wins. they didnt buy them from the supermarket
