The Lakers – San Antonio

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.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
