Los Angeles Lakers could cut the streak of three consecutive losses. The victory against the Utah Jazz by 101-95 brought some relief and allowed them once again to get closer to the Denver Nuggets, who still hold the 6th place. Both franchises have the same number of wins (22), but the Lakers have two more losses. That's why with a couple of victories they could overtake the Nuggets (and get the last position that allows them to go to the Postseason directly), and Los Angeles will go for it.
In the case of the Pacers, they are still fighting for a place in the Play-in, but as the regular season progresses that possibility seems more and more distant. The margin for error is getting smaller, and the Indiana franchise needs to win. However, their streak in their last 10 games (1 win / 9 losses) invites us to think if the Pacers' goal is really to be a Playoff team.
