Fortunate, 'cause they're getting losing to Houston, 66-59.
EDIT: Something's gotta be wrong when Steve Blake is the Lakers leading scorer...
"backed into the playoffs" is a little disingenuous. That implies there wasn't any work by the Lakers to get to where they were. For example, 9wins in the last 10 games, making it to 7th seed, losing a star player, playing uphill since the All Star break, all topped with numerous injuries to over half the team.
Under the circumstances, that's actually a pretty big accomplishment for any team isn't it?
