Default Article: It's a local race for third place in West,5357947.story

OAKLAND -- It looks as if Kobe Bryant will return Friday in San Antonio.

Will it be enough to keep the Lakers ahead of the Clippers for third place in the Western Conference?

The Lakers (40-23) are half a game ahead of the unyielding Clippers, who won for the 13th time in 15 games by beating Denver on Wednesday, 104-98.

The Clippers have won five consecutive games but finish with three of their last four on the road: at Phoenix, home against New Orleans, at New York and at Atlanta.

The Lakers, after visiting San Antonio, play host to Oklahoma City and finish at Sacramento. The Lakers own the tiebreaker against the Clippers (39-23) after winning two of their three regular-season meetings.

Well this is why we all love and hate the West. We love it because its so interesting, seeing that we never actually know what will happen until the day off the playoffs practically lol. We hate it because we wish we can see our guys have it a bit easier. This is the NBA!

Hopefully we get the third seed. Whatever highest we can get will always be an advantage, regardless of who the opponent is.
