The Los Angeles Lakers are facing a real possibility of having to go through the play-in tournament in order to qualify for the playoffs. They are facing the Portland Trail Blazers, a team that sits right below the Purple and Gold and have the same record, next.
Anthony Davis is not that concerned with the path that his team will have to go as long as the players are 100% healthy. According to him, the Lakers are the best team in the NBA when they have all player available.
“We know when we’re healthy the type of a team that we have,” Davis said after a blowout loss to the Clippers. “We’ve seen it earlier in the year. And that’s what we all refer back to. When we are 100% healthy, we are the top team in the league. We keep that in our minds. We know that we got a lot of things going on with some of our players and guys know that.
“But we know when we get a 100% healthy, Bron maybe has a week, Dennis maybe 5-6 days left or something. But when we get healthy everyone healthy, especially heading to the playoffs, we know the type of a team that we are. And I think the league knows the type of team that we are. No matter who we got to play in the play-in game or we get 5th or 6th seed we’re ready to compete against anybody.”
