Is it possible to get to 60?

NEW ORLEANS — The Lakers (54-19) need to win six of their final nine regular-season games in order to hit the 60-victory milestone for the second consecutive season. Can they do it? They say they want to, according to Lakers coach Phil Jackson, who said, “It’s a number that’s kind of a distinction in this game. Now there’s a chance. They’ve got some pride in themselves. They want to do it.” The Lakers were 65-17 last season.
