The Lakers won three of four games in Week 19, climbing above .500 (33-31) and into a potential playoff seeding. The coming week will be a difficult one with three out of four on the road, including games on successive nights, in Orlando and Atlanta.  They'll visit one of the league's top defensive teams in the Indiana Pacers  before coming home on Sunday to play the Sacramento Kings. The Lakers gained a game but are still three losses below the cumulative predictions for weeks 1-19 . Tuesday at Orlando Magic Dwight Howard makes his return to Orlando on Tuesday in what will undoubtedly be an emotional game.  The Lakers center left the Magic under difficult circumstances.  He should expect to be roundly booed throughout the game.

The Lakers (17-23) visit the Chicago Bulls (23-16) on Monday night, playing on the second night of a back-to-back. Luol Deng is questionable with a hamstring issue for the Bulls. Oddly, Chicago is just 11-11 at home. They've been dominant on the road at 12-5, but there's a slight vulnerability for the Lakers to exploit. Of course, the Lakers haven't played well consistently. They'll need their best game to beat the Bulls and that's a little much to ask given the minutes played in Toronto on Sunday.
