The Lakers find themselves in a tough battle after the all-star break. Since the break they have lost 5 out of their last 7 games and currently on 3 game losing streak. The toughest part about this is finding themselves out of the playoff picture, sitting at tenth in the Western Conference standings.
LeBron said he won’t sit out any games down the stretch and expressed the importance of taking one game at time versus worrying about the postseason after the Lakers lost against the Clippers last night (Watch LeBron’s full reaction to recent lost below).
The road doesn’t get easy for the Lakers going forward as they face the Nuggets and the Celtics in their next two games.
ESPN BPI predicts that the Lakers have a 0.1% chance to make the playoffs this season.
