Both teams are on the outside looking in from the Western conference playoff chase. The Lakers sit in the ninth seed in the Western conference and they trail the eighth seeded Utah Jazz by a ½ game. Dallas is a full two games behind the Utah Jazz and by 1 ½ games behind the LA Lakers with just nine games remaining. Both teams are similar in the fact they give up high point totals on the defensive end of the court ranking in the lower third of the NBA in this important area. Dallas has played well of late as the team has won four of their past five games after a two point home victory against the Chicago Bulls on Saturday. Dirk Nowtizki is rounding into form as the veteran is averaging 17.4 points a game but most importantly got his shooting percentage up to 47.8% on the season. The Lakers have had inconsistent efforts of late with four losses over their past six games. They finished their four game road trip at 2-2 after a five point road win at the Sacramento Kings on Saturday night. On the injury front the Lakers have had their share of issues as one would expect from an old team playing an up tempo style. Steve Nash is out on Tuesday with a hip injury.
