    so Lakers control their own destiny. If they win vs. Golden State, vs. San Antonio, and vs. Houston, they qualify regardless of what Utah does. But all of these 3 games are loseable for the Lakers, although maybe each of these 3 opponents will be slightly resting their starters for the playoffs. Jazz might need 3-0 vs. Minn (twice, once home once away) and at Memphis to get in. On the other hand going 1-2 might even get them in if the lakers go 0-3. But for sure if the Jazz lose their last 3 then they are eliminated.
