The Lakers split a four-game road trip, an improvement over recent weeks when wins were hard to come by. Now at 11-14, the Lakers are close to getting Pau Gasol back from knee tendinitis. In theory, Steve Nash is also almost ready to return from the leg injury that has kept him out of all but a game and half of the regular season. All told, the Lakers are four losses behind the cumulative predictions for weeks 1-7 . Going into week eight, the Lakers have their easiest stretch yet, just two games, with the Charlotte Bobcats visiting on Tuesday and then a trip to face the Golden State Warriors on Saturday.
