That pretty much sums up the Lakers’ season in a six second loop.
During the Clippers absolute thrashing of their cross-town rival Lakers on Sunday night, this play happened — Chris Paul got the rebound on a break, pushed the ball up court, then dribbled right through the legs of Carlos Boozer. As bad a nutmeg as you will see anywhere. Ever.
The Lakers are pretty locked into the fourth-worst record in the NBA this season, then it is up to the lottery gods if they get to keep their pick. If it is top five they keep it, six or higher it reverts to the Sixers, something that all ties back to the Steve Nash trade.
The Clippers are now just half a game back of Memphis for the three seed and the Clips have soft schedule the rest of the way. They are peaking entering the playoffs.
