Will the Lakers make the playoffs? According to sports book Bovada , the Lakers are the prohibitive favorite to beat out the Utah Jazz. Bovada gives Utah relatively scant odds at 3-to-1 compared to 1-to-5 odds for the Lakers. The Jazz (41-38) are a single game behind the eighth-place Lakers (42-37). Given that Utah owns the tiebreaker, one loss from the Lakers would give the Jazz the opportunity to climb into the postseason. Utah hosts the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday.

The young girls in Tooele, Utah, are rolling their eyes as if to say “what-EVER” after they were turned away from their homecoming dance because chaperones thought their dresses were too short. And while the fuddy-duddy adults have struck again -- the kids eventually ended up on the winning side.

The school's handbook states that dresses for formal events should be "at or near knee length," leaving room for interpretation.
