This weekend was Mother's Day and the LA Teams sure did make their moms proud: all four won their games, with Lakers and Clippers moving onto the next round of playoffs. With the return of Metta, and the reemergence of Pau after a disappointing performance at Pepsi Center, Lakers clinched a spot for second round last Saturday night, with their first game tonight against former Laker Fisher, runner-up MVP Durant, and the rest of Thunder. Clippers followed suit Sunday (yesterday), winning against Grizzlies with a 10-point margin; they face top-seeded Spurs on Tuesday, May 15th, whom they've only triumphed over once during the season - back in March, in a game in which Spurs starter Tony Parker did not play. The next round for LA Basketball will surely be a difficult one.
The other LA franchises also did well for themselves. LA Kings, who was 8th seed coming into the playoffs, has definitely come so far. They won against Coyotes Sunday night, gaining an early upperhand for the West Finals. Their next opportunity to beat Coyotes is Thursday, May 17th. Meanwhile, in baseball news, Dodgers won all three games against Rockies this weekend, including an impressive 11-5 win on Sunday. They will face Diamondbacks for the next three days.
