The Lakers play one final game at home before a seven-game road trip. The team has lost 10 of 11 games without showing much sign that a winning streak of one is near. Until the team gets at least some their injured players back (Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar and Xavier Henry), it's difficult to pick the Lakers in any game against any team. Through 37 games, the Lakers have 14 wins, two behind cumulative expectations . Tuesday vs. Cleveland Cavaliers If there's a team the Lakers have a real shot to beat this week, it's the Cavaliers.

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.
