LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The playoffs have been a romp, practically a working vacation for the Los Angeles Lakers.
Now they have more than a week to heal, drill and rest for the Milwaukee Bucks or Philadelphia 76ers.
"We are playing great team ball. Now we just need four more victories," said Shaquille O'Neal, who has a mildly sprained left ankle. "I've got five or six days off, so I'll be ready to come back with a vengeance once the Finals start."
Having humbled the San Antonio Spurs in what many saw as the matchup of the NBA's two best teams, the Lakers remain hungry.
"We're not happy with what we've accomplish so far," Brian Shaw said. "We still have some work ahead of us."
