Clippers-Lakers Betting Preview: Will LeBron Finally Turn Things Around?

Croats in NBA Zubac Faces Lakers For First Time as Clipper Welcomed by Fans

While the Clippers' playoff run is a pleasant surprise for their fans, the Lakers (30-34) dearly want to reach the postseason after a five-year absence.

"The injuries are taking a toll on us", James said.

But neither is the single-most disappointing team this season. After opening the season sincerely telling everyone who would listen that he had "the best job in the league", Walton sounds now like a man trying to make the most of his last days.

Now, LeBron James has assessed the ongoing season and has confirmed that the injuries that have plagued the Lakers have had a big say in their standing this season.

But while James is eager to put this season to the back of his mind, Bill Simmons, the National Basketball Association analyst has spoken out, claiming that if the team look in their own rear-view mirror, they will see nothing but regret - the regret of the chasing down and signing of James. It's just the way the season has been.

She is the sole owner of the brand Kylie Cosmetics. "What's been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me". Jenner was 10 years old when her family's massively successful reality show, " Keeping Up With the Kardashians ", premiered.

"We've got too much work to do to start reflecting right now", Walton said.

There has been some speculation as to whether James will sit once the Lakers are eliminated. As it now stands, the Lakers are only two games out of picking in the top 8 and three games out of picking in the top 7.

"You kind of look at the rest of the games, and look at the percentages of what's going on there in the future, and see what makes more sense for not only me but the team itself as well", added James, who suffered the longest injury layoff of his career earlier this season when a groin strain sidelined him for almost six weeks.

The last time the Lakers faced the Clippers was just over a month ago when the Lakers closed as 2-point favorites and beat their in-town rival, 123-120. I extrapolated each team's winning percentage over 82 games to come up with a new projected win total.

"Whether you have him first, second, third or 10th all-time on your personal ranking, it's not really going to change anything", Ellis said of James missing the playoffs.
