The Los Angeles Lakers are on a winning streak. The team is close to advancing to the playoffs. The Lakers have four more games to play.
The Los Angeles Lakers are currently in seventh place. They took their third consecutive win against Western Conference opponents. In the standings, they have just one win less than the fifth-seeded Golden State Warriors. It seems that only a real catastrophe would eliminate them from the playoffs.
In the last game of the Lakers, you could see LeBron James returning from injury, who, although still looking for his rhythm, delighted again. In the victory against Houston, he scored an 18-point triple-double, tying Jason Kiddow. He also had nine rebounds and two blocks.
