Rest or not to rest. That's something Clippers Coach Doc Rivers has pondered with two regular-season games left. Rivers has thought about sitting some of his starters in one or both of the next two games. But Rivers said, “No,” when asked if he had decided whether to sit any of his players when the Clippers play the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night at Staples Center or Wednesday night at Portend in the regular-season finale. “I think some of them want to play,” Rivers said.

In a regular season when so much has gone right for the Ducks, Teemu Selanne closed it perfectly Sunday by tugging a fellow Anaheim legend onto the ice for a final skate and embrace in front of an adoring sellout crowd. The Ducks (54-20-8) produced their NHL-best 26th comeback victory with a 3-2 overtime triumph over the Colorado Avalanche at Honda Center. Afterward, Selanne, 43, found his friend and former Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who's expected to join him in retirement at season's end. “Teemu's such a class act and he's known for a while that this possibly could be my last game,” Giguere said after his 33-save night for the Central Division champions.

A top seed vs. a No. 8 seed usually is a formality - there was a notable exception involving the Kings two years ago - but Dallas has won two of three games against the Ducks this season. The Oct. 20 opener was the Ducks' lone victory, as they overcame a 3-1 deficit with two Corey Perry goals and a shutout relief appearance by rookie goalie Frederik Andersen in his NHL debut, winning 6-3, after forward Ryan Garbutt launched himself at former Ducks forward Dustin Penner, who suffered a concussion on the hit. Garbutt was suspended.

Pau Gasol will do one very important thing when July rolls around. He'll listen. He won't make close to the $19.3 million he pulled down this season with the Lakers, but he'll be a popular guy when free agency begins. “It's a great position to be in,” he said Sunday. “It's rare. The first time I will ever be in that position.” It's no secret that he dislikes Coach Mike D'Antoni's offense. It's also no secret that the Lakers will eventually weigh whether D'Antoni returns for the final guaranteed year of his contract.

Emerging from the rubble of the Lakers' worst season since moving to Los Angeles was the story of someone who shall inherit the earth. Or at least a really nice pay raise. Jodie Meeks has been the Lakers' most consistent player, managing to avoid serious injury and continually putting in an honest night's work during a dreadful season for the franchise. He is averaging a career-best 15.6 points, almost double his output last season, but faces the same off-season question as almost everyone on the roster.

This is not a review, exactly, of the new season of "Mad Men," its seventh and, depending on how you slice it, its last. In order to hang on to this jewel as long as is seemly, AMC will divide its 14 episodes into two parts, to conclude in 2015. It could dollop it out over 14 years, I suppose, each year bringing a single new hour, as precious as that new Wu-Tang album. But there is only so much the people will stand. This is also not a review partly because Matthew Weiner, whose creation this is, is finicky about spoilers - "finicky" doesn't really do it justice.

The Galaxy's backline, plagued with injuries early in the season, took another hit last week when defender Todd Dunivant suffered an abdominal injury.

Nobody got hurt. The Lakers didn't lose by 50. There are only three games left. These were reasons for the Lakers to celebrate a 112-95 loss Friday to Golden State at Staples Center. 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.

Right wing Teemu Selanne will not be in the Ducks' lineup when they face the Kings on Saturday at Staples Center but will play in his final NHL regular-season game Sunday, when the Ducks host the surging Colorado Avalanche. The 43-year-old Finn, who plans to retire after the playoffs, hasn't played both ends of back-to-back games this season, a strategy designed to save his energy. Selanne, voted the most valuable player in the Sochi Olympic hockey tournament after he led his homeland to the bronze medal, has nine goals (four on the power play)
