8 seed probably gets 44-47 wins, which puts the Lakers in a very tough position to even make it.
Didn't get to watch the game but looks like Kobe's insistence on shooting 25 shots a game was a problem again
He missed some EASY shots that he typically makes, but yeah, this loss is his fault. One day he'll realize (probably 5 years after he retires) that shooting yourself into a rhythm doesn't translate to wins against good teams
