The Lakers (36-34) went winless in Week 21 against two sub-.500 teams.  A short-handed loss to the Suns in Phoenix on the second night of a back-to-back might have made some sense -- but losing an 18-point lead to the Washington Wizards at Staples Center was a debacle. Now the Lakers have 12 games left to climb to the sixth or seventh seeding in the Western Conference -- or at the very least protect their hold on eighth place.  That battle takes shape on Monday with a visit to the Golden State Warriors.

The Lakers (17-23) visit the Chicago Bulls (23-16) on Monday night, playing on the second night of a back-to-back. Luol Deng is questionable with a hamstring issue for the Bulls. Oddly, Chicago is just 11-11 at home. They've been dominant on the road at 12-5, but there's a slight vulnerability for the Lakers to exploit. Of course, the Lakers haven't played well consistently. They'll need their best game to beat the Bulls and that's a little much to ask given the minutes played in Toronto on Sunday.
