NBA playoff picture, current matchups, projections, tiebreakers: Lakers look pretty safe to make play-in

The Los Angeles Lakers have lost eight of their last 10 games and are 10 games under .500, but they still feel pretty safe to at least make the play-in round. Entering play on Wednesday, the Lakers have just a two-loss lead over the No. 11 Blazers, but Portland is actively tanking and will fall out of the race soon. The threat is the No. 12 Spurs, who aren’t that close, trailing the Lakers by four games in the loss column with 13 to play.
