NBA game of the week: Lakers at Clippers, Sunday

The Clippers, newly crowned Pacific Division champions, will go for a season sweep of the Lakers, who need a win to strengthen their playoff bid.

Looking ahead

LAKERS AT CLIPPERS: Sunday, 12:30 p.m.. TV: Channel 7.

The Clippers have their first 50-win season in franchise history, but why stop there? They could sweep the Lakers in a four-game season series for the first time since moving to Los Angeles in 1984, having done it only once previously, as the Buffalo Braves in 1974-75. A Lakers victory would do more than save the city's historically dominant franchise some embarrassment; it would help stabilize the team's shaky playoff standing. The Lakers are battling Utah for the No. 8 seeding in the Western Conference with only a handful of games left in the regular season.
