So when the Lakers played their final game at Staples Center Sunday night, it was hard to know how to act or what to do next.

LOS ANGELES – The Mavericks front office’s fears for Steve Nash finally came true eight seasons, two MVPs and one franchise later. The point guard’s body has broken down. After a tremendously successful stint with the Phoenix Suns that followed his Dallas departure, Nash’s two seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers have been extremely difficult. Injuries have limited the future Hall of Famer to 63 games, including only 13 this season as he dealt with nerve root irritation in his back and hamstrings.
SACRAMENTO -- Not that any awards should be handed out to anyone on a Los Angeles Lakers team that fell to a dreadful 25-50 with a 107-102 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday -- no need to pile on to the participation trophies trying to strip the competitiveness out of youth sports these days -- but specialized titles can still apply. Biggest disappointment? That's easily Kobe Bryant, as Father Time won this round with him, limiting the 35-year-old to only six games when a fractured knee was the latest injury to strike his left leg after his torn Achilles.

The seven-year veteran could be back in the lineup next week if cleared.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The Lakers are likely to be without two of their most experienced players when they welcome the surging New York Knicks to Staples Center on Tuesday.
