As you know, The Lakers play the Spurs three times from last Wednesday to the end of next week. As you also know, The Lakers have the Spurs number. Why? Because The Lakers have a tremendous front line, and the Spurs simply don’t have enough depth up front.
Last Wednesday, The Lakers defeated the Spurs, 98-84.
Andrew Bynum grabbed THIRTY REBOUNDS and scored 16 points. He made the Spurs look like little kids. Here’s what happens when the Spurs play The Lakers:
– Tony Parker can’t penetrate into the lane, and the rest of the team settles for jump shots.
– Tim Duncan…despite not playing since Sunday, looked old.
– The Lakers pound the Spurs mercilessly in the post-up game.
The Spurs defeated the Grizzlies last night, 107-97, but Memphis eventually closed the game to within a couple of points. They are going to have to win the top two seeds, because they simply cannot contend with a team with front court presence.
