Jonas breaks down James Harden's big night, some injury updates and the race for the 8th seed out West! (Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports)
Over the past few years, the Los Angeles Lakers have grown used to playing meaningless games at the end of the season. Last year, they were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention with 10 games left in the season. The season before that, they were eliminated with nine games remaining.
Colin Cowherd: “Yes, Kyle Kuzma and the Lakers starters, including LeBron who played the entire fourth quarter, eked out a win over a Denver team that didn’t play any of their starters in the fourth quarter. Even after that game the Lakers are last in three-point percentage, last in field goal percentage, and last in points at the Bubble. And that is WITH LeBron James and WITH Anthony Davis.
