The team had plenty of positive vibes in the locker room during their post-game interviews. Nick Young spoke to the media to address the team’s win at Staples Center saying the following according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

With the team way out of the playoff picture, Young’s comments shows a bright sign of life to the Lakers season of lows with defeats and injuries that continue to pile up ever since Kobe Bryant’s knee injury end his season prematurely.

It’s still a sight to see when the undermanned Lakers pull off an astounding victory late in the regular season. The purple and gold continue to try derail playoff hopes contending teams late this season while the future remains uncertain for many of the players.

Only nine games remain in a season that couldn’t end soon enough for the Lakers.

With nothing to lose, the Lakers front office have a little more time to see players on the roster showcase their talent in the final stretch. Players such as Xavier Henry, Kent Bazemore, Jodie Meeks, Kendall Marshall, MarShon Brooks and Jordan Farmar will need to prove their worth in the final few games in order to merit a spot on the squad next season.
