Time is winding down on the NBA regular season, and the Los Angeles Lakers are making a serious push for the postseason. With their huge comeback win over the Bucks on Tuesday, the Lakers pulled within two games of the Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference standings.

We all know that when healthy, LA poses a serious threat in the Western Conference. With their size and experience, they have the ability to wreak havoc against smaller and less experienced teams. We have already seen teams of this variety like the Thunder struggle against the Lakers for this reason.

Anthony Davis has been LA's best player this season. Lakers fans have said for years that he is a borderline top five player in the league if he can stay healthy, and that is precisely what he has done this year. Playing in 68 of the team's 72 games while dominating at both ends of the floor, AD's high-level play should be a scary sight for the rest of the NBA.

There are plenty of reasons to believe the Lakers can make a run similar to the one they did in the playoffs last season. But with how close of a race the West remains, getting to the playoffs is still far from a guarantee. These are the most important questions facing each Lakers player as we approach the postseason.
