Renewed Commitment to Defense Not Apparent. Lakers Lose to Grizzlies, 106-93

What started out as a night where we might finally see a Los Angeles Lakers team that was on the same page and worked in unison on both ends of the floor quickly turned in to the same display of poor offensive and defensive execution that has been displayed all season. The Lakers lose to the Memphis Grizzlies 106-93 which marks their 4th straight loss and 7th straight on the road. To make matters worse, Dwight Howard re-aggravates his shoulder injury and had to leave the game for good in the 2nd quarter.

Prior to the Lakers game against Memphis there was a report of a players meeting where the team got to air out a lot of their frustrations and quarrels. Going by the Lakers comments regarding the players meeting prior to the game it seemed as if there was going to be a renewed commitment to the defensive end of the floor and giving maximum effort. Dwight Howard had stated that he was going to focus on the defensive end of the court and not worry about how many shots he was getting in the offense which was something he complained about to select reporters after the Chicago loss where he only took 5 shots.

Lakers’ magic number drops to 3 to clinch the Pacific

The Lakers dropped their magic number to win the 3rd seed in the Western conference and the Pacific division title to 3 after their 99-87 win over the Golden State Warriors Wednesday night. The Lakers have 3 games remaining on their schedule and the Clippers, who are just a 1/2 game back of the Lakers in the standings, have 4 games remaining. With the Lakers owning the tie breaker over the Clippers due to winning the season series 2 to 1, the Clippers will have to get a game ahead of the Lakers in order to take the Pacific division crown. The Lakers’ magic number will go down with every win or Clippers lost; once it hits zero the Lakers will clinch the Pacific division. The Clippers will play the Phoenix Suns today in Phoenix. The Lakers will play the San Antonio Spurs on the road on Friday.

The Lakers will also have to hold off the Memphis Grizzlies in the battle for the 3rd seed in the west. The Grizzlies are 2 and 1/2 games back of the Lakers, but only 2 back on the loss side. The Lakers magic number to beat out Memphis in the standings is 1. The Lakers also won the season series against the Grizzlies at 2 to 1. The Grizzlies take on the Charlotte Bobcats Satruday night in Charlotte.  

The Lakers have the toughest schedule of the 3 teams vying for the 3rd spot, while the Grizzlies have by far the easiest road the rest of the way. Here is how the 3 teams remaining schedule pans out:
