The Lakers really need to start winning soon...
I know I'm stating the obvious, but damn. They're 15-20 now. In order to make the postseason they'll probably need mid-40s in wins, but let's figure they need 50 (worst case scenario). They'd need to go 35-12 (roughly 75% of their remaining schedule) to reach that total. It might not seem like it's out of reach, but just a few days ago they were 15-15 and needed to finish 35-17 (a little more than 2/3 of their games).
It's not doomsday yet, but it's getting dangerously close.
