Shaquille O’Neal believes if the LA Lakers make the play-in event, they may advance to the playoffs after which beat the first-seeded Phoenix Suns. He believes they may have an urgency to win and that Anthony Davis could have returned by then, making them considerably stronger.

“In the event that they (make the play-in recreation), they undoubtedly need to win and they’ll face Phoenix within the first spherical. After which, in the event that they make it to the eighth spot, they may beat Phoenix … ‘trigger AD gonna be again.”

O’Neal believes Davis could make the distinction between a ninth-place crew that’s 31-42 and a 60-win crew. The Lakers went 17-20 even with Davis on the ground, and his numbers have been nowhere close to his previous All-Star self. He was taking pictures career-lows from all around the discipline and his presence had little or no influence on successful.

One space Davis will surely enhance is protection, however the Lakers aren’t a prime 10 defensive crew that’s in search of that lacking piece. The truth is, they’re twenty first within the league in that class, and the addition of 1 participant is not going to make a distinction.

The Lakers are a half-game forward of the Tenth-place New Orleans Pelicans (31-43). They face one another twice within the coming week, together with a recreation Sunday evening in New Orleans. The winner of this mini-series will go a good distance in the direction of figuring out the setup for the play-in event.

However the Eleventh-seeded San Antonio Spurs (30-44) are only one recreation behind the Tenth spot, and the Lakers have the league’s second-toughest remaining schedule. If they do not handle to win nearly all of the upcoming video games, they could discover themselves out of the play-in as nicely.

Thus, O’Neal’s take is extraordinarily daring, and his prediction is prone to fail. However it will definitely be enjoyable to observe LeBron James in a seven-game sequence alongside Davis once more.
