Lakers v Spurs Game 4 Today: 3 Things to Look for from Lakers

Los angeles Lakers San Antonio Spurs game 4
USATSI

Many thought prior to the start of the season that by the time this part of the playoffs came around, that the Los Angeles Lakers would be one of the teams looking to close out their first round series quickly in order to take that next step in their championship run. That stark reality is that this Lakers team never came close to being one of those championship contending teams this season and will be taken out by one that is, the San Antonio Spurs, at some point in this series. The Los Angeles Lakers will play today at Staples Center in hopes of extending the series for nothing more than professional pride.

Three things to look for in tonight’s Game 3 from the Lakers:

Injuries:

The Lakers were hobbling coming in to the playoffs and tried to keep the roster together with pain blocking injections, tight wraps and heart. The patchwork effort has come completely undone for the Lakers and they will be without 5 players. Kobe Bryant (achilles), Steve Blake (hamstring), Steve Nash (hamstring and hip), Jodie Meeks (ankle) and now Metta World Peace will be all out for today’s game with injuries. Andrew Goudelock and Darius Morris will get the start again in the Lakers back court. Both Goudelock and Morris played well offensively on Friday, combining for 44 points.

The Los Angeles Lakers first round series versus the San Antonio Spurs continues tonight in Los Angeles. The Lakers are decimated by injuries in their back  court. Steve Blake has been ruled out of tonight’s game and both Steve Nash and Jodie Meeks are doubtful. The Spurs have already made it tough for the Lakers to dominate the inside with their bigs and now with them being limited in the back court offensively, look for the Spurs to put even more pressure on both Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard.
