Well that was fun while it lasted. The Lakers were playing like a 40 win team for a few weeks, but they’ve fallen back down to earth lately. A brutal loss to a weakened Clippers team leaves us with a numb and bitter feeling. LA has had the 3rd easiest schedule so far this season […]
The Lakers won a game and lost once since our last Lakers data report, but there’s been little movement in their overall team data. They still sit at a projected 31 wins based on how the team has played so far and the games remaining, good for 12th in the West.
Three more games are in the books, leaving us with some more Lakers data. The team lost two close winnable games, and their performances in those contests has dropped the team’s outlook. The Lakers are now down to a projected 31 wins based on their remaining schedule and based on how the team has played […]
This game was terrible and the Lakers offense was really bad, but the defense yet again was strong for LA and helped us earn the win. The Lakers have moved up from playing like a 31 win team to 33 after the ugly win against Phoenix. If you haven’t seen the following win projections before:

The Lakers showed great resilience in Wednesday’s game vs. Boston but ultimately didn’t come out of the game with a win. The team dropped from 15th in Points Over Expectation (POE) to 19th after an extremely poor offensive performance, sliding them down a win in the projected standings.
As Pete and Darius brought up on the latest LakerFilmRoom podcast, the Lakers’ team has been quite the inverse of what we’ve expected to see thus far. The defense has really carried the team while the offense is much lower ranked. This comes as a surprise to us all, but is it something we should […]
The Lakers are 0.500! And that’s no sham, because the Lakers data shows the team, based on their points over expectation and remaining schedule are projected to win 40 games this season! It’s incredibly impressive that as the season has gone on the team has continued to take steps forward and improve their overall POE […]
We’ll start this Lakers data report with a quick projected standings update. These win projections are based off of how teams are playing right now and their odds to win each remaining game based on team POE, team rest days before each game, and whether the game is home or away. The Lakers have jumped […]
