Well, we did it, we won must win games up til today and Utah choked. We're officially in, whether it's 8th or 7th, we avoided the embarrassment of missing after our 17-25 start. At that point I and many others said we cannot afford to go 10 games under or we're done, and since then we slowly fought back, I can't believe it came down to 2 game. I don't call this a successful season, but I'm proud that they made it after we looked buried at 27-15. Playoffs without the Lakers are just not the same, even if we're a first round exit. Still hoping to win today and get the Spurs though, don't wanna get swept by the Thunder, I think we at least games close vs SA. In the end, just feels good to not have this group be one of the few Lakers teams that ever missed the playoffs.

Like others have said....we avoided possibly the biggest embarrassment in all of sports. Thank you memphis. Looks like all of us were right about Utah after all....knew they would choke it away and I knew they weren't a playoff team. They completely choked tonight. Didn't even show up really.

This. I was legitimately excited to watch some Laker basketball, some real winners go at it. We might not be the best team out there, but we've got some heart. It's great to see.

Let the record reveal that MDA hit this one on the nose ... he thought it would take 45 wins and require the team to go 20-8 following the All-Star break. Well that's exactly what it took...

Looking back, I think the critical thing was not getting buried during that stretch of 12 of 18 games on the road from Feb 24 to end of March. They ended up going 11-7 in that stretch when they had previously been a terrible road team to that point. Turned out to be just enough.

SA are still pretty good and very well coached. If Tony Parker has his act together, the Lakers are in trouble. If he keeps having 1-10 games when Pop pulls him in the 4th, the Lakers have a good chance.

I'm pretty underwhelmed. We obviously aren't going to win the title this year so I could care less if we get knocked out now or next round. Don't understand why it's that big of a deal that we avoided the Thunder.

I voted 2nd round exit, and I would be good with it if that came true. IF we got by SA and the Warriors beat the Nuggets though, just with crazy ifs here, we could reach the WCF. I don't see it happening, but is like to. Really glad I didn't give up in the "official white flag" thread though, at 17-25 I said it wasn't looking good, but I wouldn't give up unless we went 10 games under .500 and we never got to that point. I did think we were screwed when Kobe went down though, I did not foresee us beating the Spurs AND Rockets.

28-12 since our lowest point of the season at 17-25. Ended the season by beating playoff squads. Nice turnaround. :jam2:

Wow! What a game. Glad we face the old Spurs instead of the young Thunder. We actually match up way better with them, compared to the Thunder. I am excited for this weekend and this series. Should go 6 or 7 games but we are in for a fun series. Lets go Lakers.

Whoopee. 7th seed. Yayers.

Gotta win the whole thing to avoid a failed season though. It's exciting playing undersog in a different way than when you're playing as a favorite.

Finished 8-1 I think, and being totally honest, the Hornets game was the only one Id say I would've been stunned if we'd lost (not that I didnt pick us to win those games though).

A lot of analysts said we would not make the playoffs a few months back, but who could blame them really, we were playing really bad and had dig a huge hole for ourselves.
