On Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers were back in action and finally got some help. Kyle Kuzma was back in the lineup after being sidelined briefly by injury. He and LeBron James teamed up to get the squad a rare win as they still cling to small playoff hopes. Maybe LeBron James' playoff intensity is starting to kick in. Here are the top player results and highlights for the LA Lakers in their recent 123-107 victory over the Chicago Bulls.

LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma lead the way

LeBron James was one of three Lakers to achieve a double-double in the Lakers' win.

The King had 36 points on 15-for-23 shooting to go with 10 boards. James also recorded four assists and two steals. His time on the court for this game was 33 minutes as he continues with limited time to close out the season.

His teammate Kyle Kuzma was the third-highest scorer with 21 points for the game. Kuzma also had five rebounds and four assists. Two other players chipped in with double-doubles. JaVale McGee went for 10 points and 11 rebounds. Rajon Rondo helped with the playmaking with his 10 assists and 14 points, while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope came off the bench to score 24 points.

The LA Lakers were able to shoot 54.7 percent for the night and hit nearly 40 percent from downtown. They also capitalized off 16 turnovers by the home team and outscored them 43-24 in the third to grab a thrilling comeback in the second half.

For the losing side, Robin Lopez led the way with 20 points on 9-for-14 shooting. Lopez also hauled in seven boards, while teammate Otto Porter Jr. had 19 points and nine rebounds.

Lakers' playoff picture still there

Recently, LeBron spoke about possibly missing the playoffs for the first time in 14 years. The chances are still extremely low right now for the Lakers to get into the NBA Playoffs. However, this win certainly could be a start of something. It improved their record to 31-36 for the season. As of right now, they trail the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference, the Utah Jazz, by 6.5 games.

They've got 15 games to go on the regular season schedule, but it's not going to be easy. However, with a solid winning streak and some luck in terms of teams above them losing, who knows. That said, the Los Angeles Lakers are also fighting with two other squads. The Minnesota Timberwolves (32-36) and Sacramento Kings (33-33) are also trying to claw their way into one of the final spots out West.

Next up for the Lakers will be a tough away game.
