NBA Predictions: San Antonio Spurs @ Los Angeles Lakers

Location: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
NBA Betting Odds: San Antonio -11
Spurs vs. Lakers NBA TV Schedule: TNT
The Spurs have really had the number of the Lakers here in the playoffs, but it really isn’t all that much of a surprise considering the lineup that Head Coach Mike D’Antoni is basically forced to throw out there at this point. We already know that G Kobe Bryant, G Steve Blake, and F Metta World Peace are out of the fold, but so too should be G Steve Nash and G Jodie Meeks. The end result has been three very lopsided games, as LA hasn’t gotten any closer than 11 in any of these games here in the first round of the playoffs. That being said, we do like some of the spunk that this team showed in Game 3, believe it or not. The game was truthfully over at the end of the first quarter when the Spurs were up by a dozen points, but we think that G Andrew Goudelock and G Darius Morris handled themselves well. F Earl Clark and perhaps C Robert Sacre are going to be asked to play some additional minutes in this game, and these youngsters aren’t going to want to just give up. Look for the young players wearing purple and gold and proving to be imposters in place of the regular Lakers to look at least a little bit more like the Lakers that we are used to seeing. The Spurs are going to be taking it easy in this one, and we think that they are going to really treat this more like an exhibition than anything else. The big boys will play their 20-25 minutes, but we don’t expect to see a whole heck of a lot more than that. An LA moneyline play might not be out of the question, but we definitely want the points on our side.
