The Lakers are 8-16 and feeling a bit better about themselves as they will bring a three game winning streak into Indiana on Monday night. LA will be in a back to back situation after they post the 100-94 victory on the road to Minnesota. Prior to the win at the Timberwolves the Lakers went to San Antonio on a Friday night as a +12 ½ point wagering underdog and came away with a two point overtime victory. The fact is the Lakers have only won a third of their games this season. That equates to a 27 wins and a place in the lottery. Kobe Bryant leads the team in scoring as he averages 25 points per game. The 36 year old is shooting a career low 38% from the floor in his 24 games. Last year Kobe played just six games and hit 42% from the floor as he suffered a torn Achilles tendon. In the Western conference LA is currently the 13th seed and trails the eighth seeded Phoenix Suns by 3 ½ games for the final playoff berth. It has been a difficult season for Indiana as they try and get through the campaign without their floor leader Paul George who is lost for the season to injury. Indiana is an 11th seed in the East and trails the eighth seeded Brooklyn Nets by four games for the final playoff position. The team is 7-17 and will carry an eight game losing streak onto the court Monday night after they drop a ten point home decision to Portland on Saturday. The Pacers have struggled for offense this year as the team scores just 93 points per game ranking 29th and second to last in the league.
