Believe it or not, even Lakers have something to play for in final game

Yes, even the Los Angeles Lakers — who haven’t spent a single day over the .500 mark since November 2013 — have something compelling going on closing night.

They could avoid being the worst Lakers team ever.

If they beat Sacramento on Wednesday night, they would finish 22-60 and with a winning percentage of .268. If they lose, they finish 21-61, winning percentage there of .256.

For now, the worst record in franchise history comes from the 1957-58 Minneapolis Lakers, who went 19-53 (.264).
