We Got Games Death, Taxes and Andrew Bynum’s Knee Hurts Los Angeles Dodgers Dodger Stadium, 1000 Elysian Park Ave., (213) 224-1400 or dodgers.mlb.com. April 18-20, 7:10 p.m.; April 21, 12:10 p.m.: The Dodgers open a four-game stand against the Atlanta Braves. The city’s attention continues to be not on the team, but on the brutal beat down of a Giants fan on opening day, and beefed-up security has been placed throughout the stadium. Here’s an idea for the Dodgers to get Los Angeles refocused on diamond talk: String together a nice little win streak. The Dodgers close the week at Wrigley Field against the Cubbies (April 22-24). Los Angeles Lakers Staples Center, 1111 S. Figueroa St., (213) 742-7100 or nba.com/lakers. April 20, 7:30 p.m.: After a torrid second half of the regular

season, the Lakers stumbled into the playoffs, losing five straight at one point. Laker nation got its regular April scare when Andrew Bynum, who will never win a World’s Strongest Knee competition, went down with an injury. His health will be critical as the Lakers begin the playoffs against the New Orleans Hornets, whose principal weakness is their lack of size down low. The Lakers are the favorite here, but with a questionable Bynum, things could get interesting, especially with old friend Trevor Ariza out to prove himself. Game one was Sunday and games three and four are in New Orleans (April 22 and 24). The quest for banner 17 is upon us. Los Angeles Kings Staples Center, 1111 S. Figueroa St., 1 (888) KINGS-LA or kings.nhl.com. April 19 and 21, 7:30 p.m.: Who is mightier? A King or a Shark? Sharks are fearless eating machines, but kings wield sceptres and rule their domains with monarchic whimsy. In the ocean, we’d give the edge to the sharks, but this battle is on icy land. Edge to the Kings, who continue their round one playoff match-up against the San Jose Sharks this week (never mind that the Kings lost game one). Game five, if necessary, is in San Jose (April 23). —Ryan Vaillancourt
