The Los Angeles Lakers long and miserable season finally comes to a merciful end and on a high note by beating the San Antonio Spurs, 113-100.

The Lakers were led by Jordan Hill who ended the night with 18 points, 14 rebounds and 2 blocks, all Laker game highs.

The San Antonio had nothing to play for with them already clinching the best record in the NBA and home court advantage throughout the playoffs. Tim Duncan prepared for the playoffs by not suiting up for this game and Tony Parker played just 15 minutes. Spurs finish the season 62-20 and are scheduled to face either the Dallas Mavericks or the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday.

The Lakers end the season with a 27-55 record and next to last in the Western Conference. Only the Utah Jazz kept the Lakers from finishing in dead last in the West.

The Lakers are now set in the 6th position in the NBA Draft Lottery which is scheduled to take place on May 20th. The 6th slot that the Lakers now own comes with a 6.3 percent chance of getting the number 1 overall pick and 21.5 percent chance of getting one of the coveted top 3 picks. The 2014 NBA Draft will be on June 26th.
