The Lakers are getting into the ultimate stage of the common season sitting in ninth place within the Western Conference with 27 wins and 32 losses and with a substantial hole between them and the assured playoff spot.
Despite the circumstances, Carmelo Anthony is assured that the purple and gold are prepared for the playoffs as they should make the ultimate push so as to earn their spot in postseason.
“I think we’re built for it,” Anthony stated forward of the Clippers recreation. “I think we’re built for the second half of the season. I think we’re built for the postseason, it’s just some things we can’t control.
“Injuries we can’t control, you don’t know how that’s gonna come, you don’t know the effect that’s gonna have on that individual or the team as well.
“Those are things we can’t control but I think now the second half of the season, not second half of the season, it’s some 26 games left. So you’re coming down to a tail end of the season. It’s definitely something that we have to kind of change our approach and our mentality going down this stretch.”
