With 15 games to play, L.A. trails the Utah Jazz by 6½ games for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. James’ personal streaks of 13 straight postseason appearances and eight straight NBA Finals berths are all but finished. But because he signed a four-year contract with the Lakers last summer, there will be more hands to be played in L.A. “Definitely, I’ll be watching it if we’re not in there, and it looks like our chances are slim to none after each and every game, and so many teams in the West are playing well,” James said. “So you try to get better, but this won’t be the last time I’ll be in the postseason.”
Derek Bodner: Final: #sixers win 106-89, moving into 3rd place in the Eastern Conference and giving them the tiebreaker over the Pacers by virtue of their 3-1 record against them. The Sixers outscored the Pacers 55-30 in the second half.
Paul Garcia: From the NBA – the Bucks can clinch a playoff spot if they defeat the Lakers tonight. It’s only March 1. #TheEast
