Do the Lakers even want the #1 seed?

Hopefully this is ok as a fanpost. I really wonder how much the Lakers really want the #1 seed.  Assuming they make it past the first round, do they really want to face the Thunder over Dallas?  I really think that they match up much better with Dallas than the Thunder.  I also think that they match up better with the Spurs without home court than the Thunder with home court.  Myself I rather see if the Spurs could beat the Thunder and then face the Spurs without home court.  Now I do realize that it might make the Thunder tougher if they did make the Western finals but I'd take the chance.  I think the best situation is for the Lakers to end up with the second overall record giving them home court over everyone but the Spurs and let them beat on the Thunder for a series and sacrifice home court to the Spurs if they win and still have home court over the east champs if we prevail.  Any thoughts on this or am I out of my mind?  Wait just the first part please. : )
