Today's Games:

Indiana 3-6 (Home: 2-1)

Utah 4-5 (Road: 1-5) 7:00pm ET
Philadelphia 4-4 (Home: 1-3)

Orlando 2-5 (Road: 0-3) 7:30pm ET
Detroit 1-8 (Home: 0-2)

Oklahoma City 6-3 (Road: 2-1) 8:00pm ET
New Orleans 3-3 (Home: 2-2)

Golden State 4-4 (Road: 2-2) 8:00pm ET
Minnesota 5-3 (Home: 3-1)

New York 6-0 (Road: 3-0) 9:30pm ET
Memphis 6-1 (Home: 3-0)

Atlanta 3-4 (Road: 2-2) 10:00pm ET
Sacramento 2-6 (Home: 2-2)

Houston 4-4 (Road: 2-1) 10:00pm ET
Portland 3-5 (Home: 1-3)

Phoenix 4-5 (Road: 1-3) 10:30pm ET
LA Lakers 3-5 (Home: 3-3)

D'Antoni is likely to miss tonight's game but be well enough for perhaps Sunday's battle against HOU? Maybe he really is trying to postpone a return until Nash steps onto the floor.

Anyway, how far do you guys think he'll get the Lakers this year?

1) Miss playoffs
2) First round exit
3) Second round exit
4) Conf. Final exit
5) Lose Finals
6) Win it all

I'm leaning them making the Finals but bowing out to MIA.

As competitive as the west is, I would still project them to make playoffs. Not sure how well they'll do beyond that but there is still plenty of time for them to make a good run at it. I'm more excited to see the development of the Knicks as the season progresses.

Stuckey to come off the bench behind Singler? Supposedly Stuckey suggested that he should come off the bench behind Singler to coach Frank. A must add in standard leagues?

Lakers are still making the WCF, I'm still thinking they'll get to the finals even but looks like the East will prevail again and it could be New York rather than Miami. Kidd's impact cannot be understated.

Unless they make a trade, I'm flexing my Laker hate and saying first round exit. B-)

Lol, trolling much? :-b

Lakers are disfunctional now but really, Dwight is a top 5 player, Kobe is a top 5 when it matters, plus Pau/Nash with a D'Antoni offense should be enough to get them to the WCF. They could be vulnerable vs Memphis or LAC but don't see either beating the Lakers.

Anyone been paying attention to Utah. lost again tonight. Philly guards and SF abused Jazz backcourt and SF. feels like Ty Corbin still doesn't know what to do with his lineups. According to 82 games that starting lineup is one of his worst. And i'm probably taking it personal because he's managed to squeeze Gordon Hayward's value(22 min, really). Mo Williams is shooting too much, and Marvin Williams seems like a bad fit.

I picked up Kyle Korver the other day after trading Dorell Wright for Brandon Knight. Things are looking good so far!!
