Moreover, if the Lakers’ current form is concerning, it is hard to see where an upturn in fortunes might come from. Of the Lakers’ remaining nba mt coins, only four are against teams who will not be involved in the postseason—three if one gives the Washington Wizards, currently 3.5 games behind a playoff spot, a chance.
Starting with Wednesday night’s matchup against the Denver Nuggets, the Lakers still have to play the top two teams in each conference – the Nuggets and the Golden State Warriors in the West and the Milwaukee Bucks and the Toronto Raptors in the East.
Aside from those four games, the average standing of the teams left to face for the Lakers is 7.57 in the Eastern Conference and 5.85 in the Western Conference. If they are to make the playoffs, the Lakers will have to do so by beating good teams.
LeBron can never be underestimated but it would be hugely surprising to see the Lakers involved beyond April this season.
