With just over a month left in the NBA regular season, Los Angeles Lakers‘ fans are biting their nails, hoping that their team can put together a magical run at the end of the season to avoid the postseason play-in tournament.

Unfortunately for them, the Lakers will not get any favors in the final stretch of the season. Ten of their final 16 games are against teams over .500. On the bright side, the Lakers are 5.5 games up on the 11th-place Utah Jazz, meaning the worst-case scenario for this team would probably still net them an opportunity to sneak into the playoffs.

On the other side of this matchup, the Sacramento Kings are looking to avoid the play-in tourney as well. The Kings currently sit in the Western Conference’s 7th-seed, but are just two games away from the 5-seed New Orleans Pelicans. There’s certainly a lot that could go right or wrong for both teams, but a win tonight would certainly be a big step in the former’s direction.
