Lakers Rumors & News Recap: Clippers Sweep Lakers, Clinch Division

1104140_sp_lakers_clippersThe Los Angeles Clippers have done the seemingly impossible. After an entire history of disappointment and failed expectations, the Clippers have finally won the Pacific Division title for the first time in franchise history.

Coming into Sunday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers, the Clippers only needed to pull out the win to clinch the division title, and help improve their position in the Western Conference. Chris Paul and company are one of only three teams to clinch their division, with the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat being the other two.

As a result of the loss to the Clippers, the Lakers fall to 40-37 on the season, and are tied with the Utah Jazz once again meaning they’re currently out of the playoffs with five games left in the regular season.

The Lakers will have their work cut out for them moving forward with the last five games by no means being easy wins for Kobe Bryant and company.

Mike D’Antoni’s squad will face the New Orleans Hornets, Portland Trail Blazers, Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets in their final games. Only one of these games will be on the road with the Lakers heading to the Rose Garden to face the Blazers.

As for the Jazz, Utah will face the Golden State Warriors, Oklahoma City Thunder, Minnesota Timberwolves (twice) and the Memphis Grizzlies. Two out of the final five games will be played in Salt Lake City.
