Join Times Lakers blogger Eric Pincus and Clippers writer Brad Turner at 11:30 a.m. today for a live discussion on the Lakers, Clippers and their chances of either making the playoffs (Lakers) or advancing far into the postseason (Clippers). It has certainly been a roller-coaster season for the Lakers, who can never seem to quite get over .500.
As Times Lakers reporter Mike Bresnahan wrote after the loss to Oklahoma City on Tuesday,
"The Lakers (30-31) were actually in the mix after Steve Nash's three-pointer brought them within 110-105 with 6:14 left. They didn't score again, missing their last nine shots.
"They also added another curiosity to an already untenable season by forcing only two turnovers, tying the fewest ever by an NBA team. They also gave up 96 Oklahoma City shots and the third-most points they've allowed in a game this season.
