Update: The Lakers have 12 regular-season games left, and one of their goals is to get the second-best record in the NBA. "We'll try," Lamar Odom said. "We'll have fun doing it. We'll compete while we'll try to do it." The Lakers want to control the pace against the Suns. The Suns defeated the Lakers the last time they met at Staples Center. Phoenix was 22 for 40 (55%) from three-point range in that game.
