Los Angeles Lakers at San Antonio Spurs

4/16/14

5:00 PM Pacific time / 8:00 PM Eastern Time

AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX

TV:   Local: TWC Sportsnet, TWC Deportes (Los Angeles), Fox Sports Southwest (San Antonio) National: NBA League Pass

Line: Los Angeles Lakers

2013-14 Records:

Los Angeles Lakers: 26-55, 14th in the Western Conference

San Antonio Spurs: 62-19, 1st in the Western Conference

Record vs. each other (2013-14 season): Spurs are 3-0 versus the Lakers this season.

  • The Los Angeles Lakers’ season comes to a merciful end today in San Antonio. Regardless of tonight’s result, the 26 and 55 Lakers will finish with the worst record in their time in Los Angeles, out doing the 1974-75 team that finished 30-52.  This team has also clinched the most losses in their entire 66 years of existence, edging out the 1957-58 Minneapolis team that finished 19-53.
  • There won’t be much drama in tonight’s game, with the Lakers pretty much locked in the 6th position for the Draft Lottery and the Spurs owning the number 1 seed throughout the playoffs, the outcome is completely inconsequential.
  • Nick Young is always a player that is worth the time to tune in to a game with his childlike exuberance that he displays on the court. Young is coming off a monster game against the Utah Jazz on Monday where he scored 41 points off the bench, 2 shy of his career mark.
  • Lakers fans might be seeing many of the players that suit up tonight for the very last time in a Lakers uniform. Only Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Robert Sacre have guaranteed deals for next season. Nick Young has a player’s option that he likely will not pick up, Ryan Kelly and Kendall Marshall have team options and their contracts are not guaranteed, everybody else is an unrestricted free agent.
  • It is unlikely that the Spurs play any of their main players with their seeding already cemented for the playoffs.
