January 21st @ Milwaukee Bucks: Loss (12-4)
The Lakers will lose in their audition for next summer. Giannis Antetokounmpo will go all-out and the Bucks will win by 10 points. The Lakers will come out furious in their following games and will wreak havoc on the bottom feeders of the NBA.
January 23rd @ Chicago Bulls: Win (13-4)
As we mentioned, the Bulls are not a bad team — they just are in comparison to the Lakers. The two teams are in a different weight class. The Lakers will take this handily just as they did in the other matchups with Chicago. Their run of dominance will not stop there…
January 25th @ Cleveland Cavaliers: Win (14-4)
The Cleveland Cavaliers are quite possibly the worst team in the NBA this season. There’s genuinely no hope for this franchise after their run of dominance with LeBron James. The Lakers will take them out with ease and LeBron James will show his fans in Ohio what they have been missing out on.
January 27th @ Philadelphia 76ers: Win (15-4)
The 76ers are an excellent basketball team, but they are running into the Lakers while they are getting hot. Philadelphia exchanged Al Horford for Danny Green and got some much-needed spacing.
Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons are excellent pieces to have obviously and they have some excellent role players around them. The Lakers are the superior team and this one will absolutely go down to the wire.
January 28th @ Detroit Pistons: Win (16-4)
The Pistons are amongst the worst teams in the NBA, as well. The Lakers should beat up on them with ease. This could be a very ugly game and would give the Lakers their fourth win in a row as they head into a tough matchup against a fantastic team.
