Default Do you think the Lakers make the playoffs?

The Lakers are only 2.5 games out of 8th spot, with Nash only playing two regular season games this year. If you take a look at the Western Conference Standings, 4-5 teams will make the playoffs guaranteed, in no particular order:

1. OKC
2. Spurs
3. Memphis
4. Clippers
5. Golden State Warriors (not guaranteed yet, but close to)

Dallas is likely to be in given their 500 play without Dirk. He's expected to join the team shortly.

That leaves 7 following teams fighting for 3 spots left (6,7,8):

Dallas (Dirk's coming back)
Minnesotta (Love's back)

Do you think the Lakers make it to the playoffs?
