Pick a champion, any champion. You could make a case for any of the eight playoff teams to win the wonderfully wild Western Conference. San Antonio has the best record in the NBA and features more precise movement than Cirque du Soleil. Oklahoma City has the hardest player to stop in the game, Kevin Durant, and a home crowd that makes the Thunder roster seem 18,203 deep. The Clippers are capable of being more than a tease under Coach Doc Rivers, who has molded his stars into new and improved versions of themselves.

It's springtime in Los Angeles, otherwise known as the season when the Clippers march merrily into the playoffs and the Lakers conduct exit interviews. OK, so maybe this isn't exactly an annual occurrence. The Lakers haven't missed the playoffs during a season in which the Clippers qualified since 1975-76, when the Clippers were located in Buffalo and the Lakers somehow finished two games below .500 with a roster that included Hall of Famers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Gail Goodrich.

The seventh-seeded Lakers will play the second-seeded San Antonio Spurs in the first round of the playoffs. After acquiring Dwight Howard and Steve Nash over the summer, the Lakers were thought to be title contenders. On Wednesday, they narrowly escaped missing the playoffs. Now that they're in, how far will they go? The Lakers caught a break by avoiding the speedy Oklahoma City Thunder when they defeated Houston on Wednesday. They are much better-matched against the aging Spurs.

SAN ANTONIO - Finally. The Lakers crawled past the finish line Wednesday, kissing goodbye to the 2013-14 season (without any further injuries) in a 113-100 victory over the half-interested San Antonio Spurs at AT&T Center. After a series of record-setting lows, the most important date for the Lakers becomes May 20, the night of the NBA draft lottery. They have a 6.3% chance of landing the top overall draft pick after finishing with the NBA's sixth-worst record. While the Lakers (27-55)

AT SAN ANTONIO When: 5 PDT. Where: AT&T Center. On the air: TV: TWC SportsNet, TWC Deportes; Radio: 710, 1330. Records: Lakers 26-55, Spurs 62-19. Record vs. Spurs: 0-3. Update: The Lakers didn't fare so well the last time they played in San Antonio, losing by their largest margin ever against the Spurs (34 points). San Antonio clinched the NBA's best record and might rest some starters against the Lakers. Then again, all the Spurs' starters sat out the fourth quarter of that game last month in San Antonio.

The Lakers head into Week 25, the final week of the season, with a seven-game losing streak. Should the Lakers lose their final two games, they would climb into at least a tie with the Utah Jazz and Boston Celtics for the fourth-worst record in the NBA. While the season hasn't exactly been fun for their fans to watch, the Lakers should be rewarded with a top prospect in June's NBA draft. Injuries have been the story, with Pau Gasol (vertigo), Chris Kaman (calf), Kobe Bryant (knee)

Mike D'Antoni thinks of it this way: don't make a bad situation worse. As the losses pile up at a record-setting rate, the Lakers coach often responds with humor while fielding reporters' questions. It's sometimes self-deprecating and usually followed by a laugh, his way of coping with a season to be remembered for two things: many injuries, many losses. "You've got to be careful because if you get in these situations it doesn't help to swing wildly and just take everybody down," D'Antoni said.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Well everyone had it wrong - you, me, the postman and the NCAA selection committee. All that teeth-gnashing over tournament seeding has produced an NCAA championship game between a No. 7 and No. 8. Let's hear it for a collective No. 15! Monday night, though, Connecticut and Kentucky will be playing for the only number that counts No.1. No. 8 Kentucky dramatically capped Saturday night with a 74-73 victory over No. 2 Wisconsin in the second NCAA semifinal game before a Final Four record crowd of 79,444 fans at AT&T Stadium.
