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.

It's a little unclear what happened the past week to the Lakers.
Probably best to just recap: They beat Portland, lost to New Orleans, the Clippers and Denver by a combined 63 points, and then beat Oklahoma City.
It made no sense but became...

Don't feel sorry for Pau Gasol. He doesn't feel bad for himself.
Kobe Bryant played only six games this season and Steve Nash barely made it through 10, but Gasol will appear in his 57th game Wednesday against San Antonio, the same team that blasted the...

SACRAMENTO — Pau Gasol's vertigo came back with a vengeance and Chris Kaman's right calf wouldn't cooperate.

SAN ANTONIO — Sure, why not. Another ragged moment for the Lakers and their fine tradition.
They never lost this badly to the San Antonio Spurs until Friday, a 119-85 blush of a game for the visitors that blew past their embarrassing 32-point...

PORTLAND, Ore. — Funny guys, those Lakers.
Their own fan base turned on them weeks ago, more interested in pingpong-ball percentages than on-court victories, so what did the Lakers do?

SACRAMENTO -- Sad news for Lakers writers. There might be only seven games left to cover the eminently quotable, entirely likable Nick Young.

Jodie Meeks was the star of the Lakers' show last Sunday, outscoring Kevin Durant but also reminding his team of something less enthralling.
He'll be a free agent in July. Almost all the Lakers will be, in fact.
The latter isn't necessarily a bad...

The Lakers will probably be mathematically eliminated next week from a playoff spot, four weeks before the regular season ends.
That's what happens when you go 10-29 since Dec. 21.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Steve Nash and Steve Blake will start for the Lakers on Tuesday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves, ending lengthy injury absences for the Lakers' point guards.

The Phoenix Suns were in town and handed the Lakers much more to ponder beyond another surprisingly rare and easy victory.
The Suns couldn't control Chris Kaman, lost Sunday's game by a 115-99 score and offered the perfect time to explore some big-...
