Lakers armchair analysis: L.A.'s big men anchor Lakers in overtime win
With the win against the Rockets, the Lakers snatch the 7th seed in Western Conference, playing the San Antonio Spurs in the first round. When the Lakers arrived in the locker room, a simple message was written on the dry-erase board:
"We're in. Way to fight the fight."
Head coach Mike D'Antoni was pleased with the Lakers progress, especially from the beginning of the season.
"From where we were 20 or 30 games ago, a seven (seed) is pretty good," D'Antoni said on ESPN. "We shouldn't have been in that spot in the first place, but it's our fault."
The Lakers begin their postseason Sunday in San Antonio against the Spurs.
