The Lakers, who were among the favorites for the NBA title this season, two years after their 17th coronation, a record shared with Boston, were eliminated from the play-off race on Wednesday after a loss to the Phoenix Suns ( 121-110).

The team led by stars LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook, long weighed down by poor play and decimated by injuries, can no longer reach tenth place in the Western Conference, the last ensuring a play-off place, that San Antonio is guaranteed to retain by the end of the regular season.
