The Los Angeles Lakers are going to be down Davis, but there are no excuses not to take care of business here. The Washington Wizards have lost 9 straight games, they're on the end of a back to back, and they're losing their last 5 games by an average of 9.2 points. The Wizards are going nowhere fast. If the Lakers are serous about getting back to a .500 record and getting back in the playoff race, these are the games they need to win. AD or not. I'll lay the reasonable number.
