NBA’s Western Conference playoffs race has become a nail-biter with only six games left in the regular season. The Lakers and the Clippers are fighting for a playoff spot with seeding remaining uncertain.
The Lakers initially struggled in their first game back with LeBron James but managed to bounce back with a win against Chicago led by a 38-point performance by Anthony Davis.
The Clippers are without Paul George due to a knee injury and could face the Phoenix Suns in the first round of the playoffs. The Sacramento Kings, ranked third in the WC, could also make history if all four California-based teams reach the playoffs.
