Lakers’ Best Plays Against Remaining Opponents

The regular season ends next Wednesday.  After the Lakers’ loss to the Warriors on Wednesday night, just four regular season games remain before the post-season begins.  As we count down the remaining games of the regular season and wait for the playoffs, let’s remember some of the top moments against these remaining opponents over recent years.  Some of these plays being pivotal moments for either franchise, and some just plain nasty.  Some of them in the playoffs, and some of them not.
