The Los Angeles Lakers jumped back into the 10th spot of the West standings last night after a last-second layup by the Spurs wouldn't drop.

But according to our odds, the Lakers won't stay in that spot or move up to qualify for the play-in tournament.

Will the Lakers make the play-in tournament?

Yes +155

No -190

The above odds imply a 39.22% probability LeBron James and company will compete in any part of the postseason. And L.A.'s actual playoff odds are even longer.

Will the Lakers make the playoffs (advance from play-in tournament)?

Yes +450

No -700

This implies just a 18.18% chance the Lake Show is competing for a title this season.

In non-Lakers/LeBron NBA news, Nikola Jokic pulled away from Joel Embiid in the MVP race over the last 24 hours. Yesterday, Jokic was a -130 favorite for MVP while Embiid was +135.

Finally, at the beginning of February, the Celtics were a mediocre team with 50-1 odds to capture a record-breaking 18th championship.

 

But now, after a torrid run, Boston finds itself 5th on the title odds board and basically tied for first in the Eastern Conference odds.

Chris Paul Trade Odds - Unlikely But....

It's highly doubtful that Chris Paul is dealt before the NBA trade deadline in 10 days, but there were some silly rumblings over the weekend that he could find his way further West if the Suns.
