The Lakers and Utah Jazz are tied in the loss column with 37 defeats. If they finish the season in a deadlock, Utah goes to the playoffs by holding the head-to-head tiebreaker with the Lakers. Utah has four games left, including tonight at home against Oklahoma City. If the Lakers don't finish with a five-game winning streak, the Jazz would have to lose at least twice for the Lakers to sneak into the postseason. "We don't know what the hell's going to happen," Kobe Bryant said. "The way I figure, we put four together and no (bleeping) way we're losing the last game. No way. "So we'll just put four together then deal with the last one when we get to it."
