Join us at 11:30 a.m. today for a live video chat with Times Clippers reporter Brad Turner and Times NBA editor Barry Stavro as they discuss their respective teams.
The Lakers have won four in a row and are 9-2 since the All-Star break, finally moving into playoff position.
As Times Lakers reporter Mike Bresnahan wrote after the Lakers' victory over Orlando on Tuesday,
"The Lakers (34-31) have won four consecutive games for only the second time this season. They'll also get healthier soon.
"Pau Gasol is steadily coming back from an internal tear in the bottom of his right foot that has sidelined him since Feb. 5. He took part in basketball-related drills Tuesday and could be running by Thursday, making a return to game action likely next week unless there are unexpected setbacks."
Are the Lakers putting it all together too late? Can they make a run at the championship? Take part in our live video chat and find out. Plus, you can ask questions during the chat and watch them get answered during the show.
