Los Angeles Lakers: Working for playoff spot
Los Angeles is just half a game behind Utah for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference with just over a week remaining in the regular season. The Lakers would be in the best shape if they won all of their remaining games, but with this year’s squad, that seems nearly impossible.
