The season that won't ever end is down to a handful of days. Nobody's complaining. No crying. Tension was sucked out of this season a month ago, if not longer. BOX SCORE: Golden State 112, Lakers 95 There's a lot of losing, though, six in a row for the Lakers (25-54) after a late run fell short, extending their team record for losses in a season.

KEY MOMENT: Yasiel Puig had not played since spraining a thumb on a headfirst dive Saturday. But, as the Dodgers loaded the bases with none out in the ninth inning, there was Puig, headed to the on-deck circle and then the plate, as Dodger Stadium went nuts. Puig struck out looking, but the Dodgers scored three runs off Detroit closer Joe Nathan to force extra innings. AT THE PLATE: Carl Crawford had a pair of doubles, Juan Uribe had three singles, and Dee Gordon had two singles.
