It's nervous time for Los Angeles Lakers fans. Since beating the Seattle SuperSonics at KeyArena on April 6, the Lakers have lost their last four games, including an inter-city showdown with the Los Angeles Clippers Thursday at the STAPLES Center. The losing streak has allowed Golden State and the Clippers, both 39-40, to pull even with the Lakers in the loss column. The Lakers hold the tie-breakers and have just two games left, both of them against teams headed for the lottery, but a stumble could potentially mean the Lakers slip from a solid sixth seed most of the season all the way out of the postseason.
