Wizards-Lakers Preview

LOS ANGELES -- With a crucial four-game stretch against Western Conference foes ahead of them, the Washington Wizards try to keep their bid alive for the top spot in the Eastern Conference when they face the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday at Staples Center.

The Wizards (45-28), who already clinched a playoff berth, have won three straight, including a 127-115 victory over the host Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday. Point guard John Wall led the way with 37 points and 11 assists as the Wizards continue to chase the conference-leading Boston Celtics and the Cavaliers for first place in the East.

Washington is 2 1/2 games behind the Celtics and two games back of the Cavaliers, who lost 103-74 to the San Antonio Spurs on Monday. The Wizards lead the fourth-place Toronto Raptors by a half-game.
