A local California restaurant congratulated the wrong Los Angeles basketball team on its NBA playoff run.

Santa Monica restaurant Upper West (which clearly holds tight to its motto, “Wholly focused on food”) bought an ad in Wednesday’s sports section of the Los Angeles Times to salute the Lakers on their postseason success. The only issue is that the Lakers’ season ended back in April, with a dismal record of 27-55.

The Los Angeles Clippers, however, won the Pacific Division and advanced to the second round of the NBA playoffs.
