The Los Angeles Lakers are a bit late to the party, but they've actually started winning games recently. After getting eliminated from playoff contention by the Brooklyn Nets last Friday, they have taken three of their past four games. On Friday, they knocked off a Charlotte Hornets team that had won four games in a row and needed a victory to stay in the playoff race themselves. It makes little sense, as the Lakers need to lose in order to improve their pick in June's NBA Draft, but nothing about this Lakers season has made any sense, so why should the ending be any different?
