The Los Angeles Lakers are far from what everyone expected them to be at this moment of the season, in the 9th seed in the Western Conference and with most of the games being a must-win like this Wednesday's night against the Clippers in the last edition of the Battle for LA of the regular campaign.

But now that the LA Lakers aren't doing as well as they should be, the fans have to look and wait for other results to hope the purple and gold can have a chance to make it straight to the playoffs or at least the Play-In Tournament.

With that in mind, here's what we're rooting for in today's games: the Mavericks losing to the Cavaliers, and the Golden State Warriors losing to the Washington Wizards. Utah Jazz lost to the Hawks and the New Orleans Pelicans lost to the NY Knicks.

Of course, the more important result is for tomorrow the LA Lakers to beat their neighbor team the LA Clippers to keep on the run for the Play-In Tournament and the playoffs as the team has as a goal to at least repeat making it to the WCF like last year.

The Lakers injuries continue to affect the team this season

Despite their main stars being healthy, the Lakers have been suffering from different players being out because of injuries, key pieces like Jarred Vanderbilt, Cam Reddish, Gabe Vincent, and more recently Christian Wood.
