Out of the fire into the playoffs

Joy’s been really lucky these past couple weeks getting Lakers tickets from her work. They’re really good seats in the VIP level right below the luxury boxes and she got some for the last Lakers game of the season against the Rockets. We had a couple extra tickets and invited Jih and Liz to the game.

It was going to be a tense game because going into the game the Jazz lost guaranteeing the Lakers into the playoffs, but winning the game meant they would avoid the Thunder as a8 and play the Spurs as a 7.

The game was really good, and Pau looked great playing with Dwight Howard. It was fun to see Jeremy Lin to play, and i’m sad but happy he didn’t shoot very well. James Harden is a beast, and Chandler Parson is deadly inside and out, especially with his last second 3 pointer to send the game into overtime. Thankfully the Lakers bench pulled through and won the game.
