Kobe Bryant is trying to take his Lakers into the postseason.

Kobe Bryant is trying to take his Lakers into the postseason.


This week’s picks:

New York City — Muse at Madison Square Garden, 4/15 (starting at $32)

Okay so this is on Monday and not the weekend, but it’s hard to pass up on Muse at MSG for a price like that. One of the best bands in the world playing in Manhattan. Get some.

Los Angeles – San Antonio Spurs vs. L.A. Lakers, Staples Center 4/14 (starting at $124)

The Lakers are battling for their playoff lives late in the season and the top-seeded Spurs are coming to the Staples Center. San Antonio would love nothing more then to kick Kobe and the Lakers when they’re down.

Chicago – San Francisco Giants vs. Chicago Cubs, Wrigley Field 4/14 (starting at $9)

The Giants have won two of the last three World Series trophies and they’re visiting the most famous baseball field on the planet. Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum is slated to start for the Giants.

Dallas – San Jose Sharks vs. Dallas Stars, American Airlines Center 4/13 (starting at $20)

The Stars are trying to make a comeback late in the season to secure that 8th playoff spot even after the trade of Jaromir Jagr. Hockey is always better live and NHL games at $20 are almost unheard of.

Houston – Chicago Fire vs. Houston Dyanmo, BBVA Compass Stadium 4/14 (starting at $23)

The Dynamo have still not lost a match at BBVA since it opened last season — a streak that has lasted 34 games thus far. Cheer on the orange as they try to make their third consecutive MLS Cup in 2013.

Bonus city: Boston – Tampa Bay Rays vs. Boston Red Sox, Fenway Park 4/13 (starting at $22)
