The Los Angeles Lakers have just 10 games remaining before the start of the playoffs and have a 1-3 record since Anthony Davis returned from his injury.
"We control our own destiny," Davis told reporters on a postgame video conference. "So we have to start playing with a sense of desperation, even though we are in the playoffs as of right now. But we're not that far off from being in play-in games. So we've got to play with a sense of desperation, as well."
LeBron James is close to returning from a six-week absence due to a high ankle sprain.
"We've just got to look forward," Frank Vogel said. "We've got six out of our next eight at home, seven if you count the Clippers game, and we've got to put this trip behind us and continue to work on what we're doing."
