I think they have a good chance at getting past the first round, even if Memphis is the opponent. But I don't see them getting past the 2nd round. I don't see how they can beat SA or OKC. Those teams are too talented offensively for the Lakers to beat.
Neither plays great playoff D. But they won't need to against the Lakers offense. Just wait around long enough for the Lakers to go into that stretch of minutes where they can't score and pull away at that point.
During the offseason, the front office needs to find scorers. Especially when it comes to the bench. Its the only way they can win another championship in Kobe's era.
