Lakers vs. Spurs: Lakers pummel San Antonio, 99-83

ThLakers2_510e Lakers came up with their biggest victory of the season, thumping the Spurs, 99-83, in front of a stunned, silent crowd at AT&T Center.

Kobe Bryant had 26 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Pau Gasol had 21 points and Andrew Bynum continued his strong run on the boards, taking 17 rebounds for a second consecutive game.

Lamar Odom had 15 points and Shannon Brown had 12. Matt Barnes had five points and six rebounds in his first action since missing 26 games because of cartilage damage in his right knee.

Derek Fisher had eight points and three assists, playing despite a sprained right elbow.

The Lakers (45-19) won their seventh consecutive game and were all over the Spurs, holding them to 36% shooting and leading by as many as 32. The Spurs fell to 51-12, 29-3 at home.

Tim Duncan was a total non-factor, scoring two points on one-for-seven shooting. Only one Spurs starter scored in double figures, Tony Parker finishing with 14 points.

Lakers-Spurs box score

 Lakers 81, Spurs 52 (end of third quarter)

The Lakers are 12 minutes away from their biggest victory of the season. Judging by the scoreboard, they'll get there without worry.

Kobe Bryant has 24 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Pau Gasol has 17 points, six rebounds and four assists. Andrew Bynum has four points and 15 rebounds.

The Lakers are thumping the Spurs in practically every category: rebounds (42-31), assists (19-11) and shooting percentage (48% to 34%) among others.

The Lakers are also getting production from their reserves, Lamar Odom scoring nine points and Shannon Brown adding eight.

Lakers 65, Spurs 37 (halftime)

The Lakers extended their stunningly large lead against the San Antonio Spurs, continuing to play their best game of the season against the team with the NBA's best record.

Kobe Bryant had 17 points and Pau Gasol had 15 on six-for-eight shooting. Lamar Odom had nine points off the bench and Shannon Brown added six.

The Lakers held the Spurs to 34.8% shooting in the first half. The Lakers had assists on 16 of their 28 baskets.

Lakers 34, Spurs 13 (end of first quarter)

The Lakers unfurled their best quarter of the season in their biggest game to date.

Andrew Bynum was incredibly active, taking eight rebounds in nine minutes. Kobe Bryant had eight points, Pau Gasol had seven, and the Lakers held the Spurs to six-for-22 shooting (27.3%).

The Lakers received some good news an hour before the game, when Phil Jackson said Derek Fisher would play despite having his left elbow bent backward grotesquely by Charlotte center Kwame Brown on Friday.

Fisher had five points and an assist in the first quarter.

Matt Barnes checked into the game late in the first quarter, his first action since January. He had missed 26 games because of cartilage damage in his right knee.

The Lakers are beginning a four-game trip that will also take them through Atlanta, Miami and Dallas.

History repeats to the same patterns, but evolving from them to a more perfected reality, round after

we take within the future. It's a great life to be a Lakers Fan. Sorry others: you just can't compete.

Phil knows he's got a Ferrari this year. He's just got it purring along. Trying a few things in 2nd & 3rd
gear. Knows he's got several more gears, but sees no need to even try them now. Hasn't even floored
it yet when the NBA cops aren't looking, but knows he can lay a patch of smoke & rubber a block
long if he ever needs it. But yeah, Sonny Belfast, Phil knows (and YOU know) he may not even need
to floor it this year at all. But just for the heck of it, I think he will. @CORNERJ
*_____________________________________________________________________*
In my mind's eye, the Lakers and Celtics are rushing towards each other in the fashion that they have
in years past. Matching each other, blow-for-blow, against all-comers until the time to meet arrives.
They are looking squarely in the others direction while they simultaneously brush aside any with the
misguided notion that they are contenders. It is the same as how Bruce Lee will casually vanquish all
OF the Big Boss' henchmen on his way to the real dance. It is about Boston. It has always been about
Boston. Boston is the only franchise that has earned our RESPECT...and our DERISION. @ FEARLESS

LIKE FINE ART. . .--stand too close, and the brilliance cannot be fully appreciated --pass judgment

Kobe can win THROUGH his team mates. He can win WITH his team mates. He can win
DEFERRING to his team mates. He can win IN SPITE OF his team mates. He can win INSTEAD
of his team mates. He can even win BY HIMSELF (just ask Dallas & Toronto). Champions are
forged in the 4th QUARTER. Franchises are defined in the 4th QUARTER. Dynasties are cemented
in the 4th QUARTER. Sit back & watch PJ, Kobe & Fish orchestrate this symphony we call Lakers
basketball to another parade down Figueroa Blvd.@ FEARLESS

________________________GAME DAY PRAYER __________________________*
Many of you have made requests for a game day prayer. Your wish is my command. As I do not
want to offend anyone of certain faiths, I have included several divine beings from the skies above.
.
LET US PRAY
.
Dear God, Jesus, Allah, Vishnu, Zeus, The Golden Calf, Buddha, The Alien Greys, The Reptilians, & Sam Cassell, We ask that you use your divine powers to grant us, not world peace, not the end of world hunger, not even the destruction of the TV show, Jersey Shore. We ask only for a Laker victory. We know you don't concern yourself with resolving such petty issues as world peace and poverty, as these problems have existed for thousands of years, and have yet to be resolved. We do know that you care about the Lakers, as you have blessed them like no other, and have have granted them back to back titles. We pray for another Laker victory tonight for your favorite team. You may hear similar prayers coming out of Northern California asking for a Warriors victory, but I beg of you, oh divine one, ignore their silly prayers, and listen only to ours. We thank you in advance. Can I get an AMEN?

Oh Magia32...I FEEL YOUR PAIN!!! LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What's that I see?????
RCOTD = MAMBA24 = OUT FREAKIN STANDING SIR!!! YIPEEEEEEE!!!!! You like me!! You really Like me!!!
Security who let that man on stage? REMOVE HIM IMMEDIATELY!!!

Wow... Rose is NOT afraid to take--and make--the big shots in the 4th quarter when the game's on the line.

There's a dividing line between "superstar" clowns like LeBron and serious disciples of the game like MJ and Kobe, and Rose is making clear which side of the line he's on...


@MAMBA24… Good morning, Larry. What could be better than French toast and bacon, a Coke over ice, a couple of tokes, and Game Day Roll Call for breakfast to start a great Sunday in Lakersville. I’m looking for the Lakers to bring their A-Game today. Here’s my prescription for a sweet victory:
…..
(1) Run the Triangle Offense efficiently to control the pace of the game and minimize turnovers and lapses in transition defense. As Phil has stated, our defense really starts with running our offense. More ball and player movement and lots of assists. Less isolation and jump shots early in the clock.
…..
(2) Play inside-out basketball on offense to take advantage of our superiority and length in the front court. Pound the ball inside to Drew, Pau, Lamar, Ron, and Kobe. Get Duncan and the Spurs bigs in foul trouble and build a big advantage in points in the paint, offensive rebounding, and free throws.
…..
(3) Take care of the ball because turnovers are always the wild card. Not only do they waste an opportunity to score but they give it to the other team. Consider every turnover to be a 4-point play. More quick passing of the ball and cutting by players. Less dribbling, especially through crowds.
…..
(4) Seal the paint and protect the rim on defense to erase mistakes by our perimeter players. This means that Drew has to play defense against the Spurs like he did against the Bobcats, challenging and blocking shots, intimidating and forcing the Spurs to become a jump shooting team.
…..
(5) Stay at home on 3-point shooters. Let Drew, Pau, and Lamar play their men 1-0n-1. Trust Drew and our rotations to protect your back and prevent penetrators from scoring down low. The key with the Spurs is to take away points in the paint and 3-point shots, forcing them to take non-paint 2’s.
………………………
TOM

From the Lakers Minni game chat,

Pfunk jokingly said something like Phil should be sent to the pasture or put down.
MM resond with this,
ok pfunk you're going to get banned if you're suggesting someone should euthanize phil
by latmedina (moderator) @ 6:41 pm

And Pfunk was banned from the chat with that.

From the Ron Artest receives new set of wheels on 'Lopez Tonight' thread,

Don't Blame Del Harris!,

Next time someone talks to you of utopia, throw them off a bridge. An EXTREMELY tall bridge... into rushing water... filled with carnivorous beasts.

Posted by: Jon K. | March 03, 2011 at 01:17 PM

Throwing someone off a tall bridge into water where carnivorous beasts wait. Uh, that would certainly hurt or kill someone, right?

Yet MM gives no warning or bans anyone here, hmm.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

And now from the Laker girl profile: Erin wants to work in the fashion industry thread,

Yellow, suggest that the injury to Fisher might be a blessing in disguise and what happens....

To Yellow, from MM,

@yellofever - I deleted your comment in which you expressed delight in Fisher's injury. Criticize players all you want, but expressing pleasure in someone's ill will is personal and distasteful
Posted by: Mark Medina | March 05, 2011 at 06:38 PM
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, I have absolutely no problem with Jon K or with anyone else here for that matter. This is a public sports blog, problems with anyone here or on the internet is like running in mud.
The problem here is Mark Medina. Where is the fairness? Warnings and bans have to go for everyone here, not just those outside the circle of kool kids here.

Time for Drew to also finish the game. Hopefully, Phil does not make the same mistake against the Spurs as he did last time, which cost us a 1-point loss when the Spurs got a tip in at the buzzer.

G-d, that was awesome!

I didn't know the Lakers had it in 'em.

Today and today only (so far) except a couple Januaries, Bynum has lived up to LakerTom's exuberant assessments and his contract.

What wonderful rebounding!

We are the anti-Heat. Feel the coldness of the Lakers' domination!

CRUESTERS
Since I had to work, I missed the game. Doesn't matter, it's not what you don't see, but what really happens that I'm concerned with. Got spanking?

Colorado loves our World Champion Lakers!

Well, i love the roll call. Keep it up, my bro mamba24!

Woke up here in Manila to see a 29-point lead after 3. What a great day this will be for me. Best game of the season, and not a moment too soon.

My apologies to all for being a bit silent these past few months. I never felt a need to comment during the 3- and 4-game loss streaks, as i thought that the team was coasting and more interested in keeping its collective health.

YA DAMN RIGHT!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

WHAT UP HUGO BOSSS!!! The World Champion LA Lakers Love Colorado!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like our boys are gearing up for the REAL season. Great victory today. Really proud of them!

D Rose deserves the MVP honors, I just love the guy.. and the way he's playing is just amazing.

And now... wee all LAKERS FANS know that the 3peat is charging... there's no way lakers will fall short... this is... like the previous two years... championchip seasons for the guys in purp and yellow! We have something other team dont... Mr Future hall of fame... Kobe Bean Bryant. :) Three heat cant stop the 3peat.

I think the Lakers just woke up and decided to answer the bell.

It's time to make another title run!

These Lakers are a lot like Lucy from the "Peanuts" cartoon with the football. She always lets Charlie Brown think that he is going to get to kick the football...and then at the last minute she yanks it away!

That's kind of like these Lakers and the NBA title. They let the rest of these NBA teams work up their hopes...

...and then yank the title away!

Of course, any Lakers fan knows this script by now....and the rest of the NBA just never learns.

What are you lakers fans happy about? You cheated in getting gasol, and had to buy off the refs to win the championship in 2010. The Spurs have won 4 rings without the best player in the game. Duncan is the only true all star. The spurs are a TEAM, not an overexpensive boutique that is the lakers.

It's nervous time in Spurs-land.

steve- go cry to your momma.

steve....

put a sock in it!!!

steve...

"Duncan is the only true all star"

I thought you Spurs fans thought Manu and Tony were all that!! Nice to know how you really feel.

LOL okay there Steve

The Fakers get all excited after they win one game. Spurs still beat them twice and just came off a satisfying win over Miami. The Fakers finally beat someone with a winning record and now all the fans act like they won a championship. Watch next week when they lose to Miami and Dallas then they will be back to the same old whining they have been doing all year. Meanwhile, Spurs will keep motoring on and lock up home court throughout the playoffs.

The Fakers had the REFs gift wrap the title for them last year. Paper champs. Also, Kobe gets the REFs to call fouls by screaming every time he is in the act of shooting. Sad.


I told people to stop worrying about the Lakers when they hit a couple of mini slumps! They are rolling to another June handshake with David Stern when he's handing them their NBA Championship Trophy! Kobe Bryant and Phil Jackson will win perhaps their last title together if Phil decides to retire. I really want to see Kobe and Company beat the Miami Heat and LeBron James in the finals, but we will be cheated out of that pleasure because the Heat aren't good enough to make it out of the Eastern Conference, I'm out!

It's time to step it up. Lakers are getting hot at the right moment. If the lakers continue the dominant defense there is no team in this league that can beat these guys. Their defense has been absolutely dominant. Even when they have a bad offenisive game they win due to defense. Go lakers !!! Kobe it's time to get your 6th ring.

Fakers Happy After 1 Win,

Greetings....Have a "paper" question for you? Count the number of "paper" CHAMPIONSHIPS your team (the team you follow through thick and thin) has currently to date the last 10 years or so...Hmmm...

Remember, CHAMPIONSHIPS are EARNED, not GIVEN. Don't kid yourself on that fact alone. Talking about the woulda, coulda, and shoulda doesn't solve the FINAL outcome.

How about putting this in writing, on a "paper" that is. Have a nice Lakers day.

Laker pride through ALL and ANY ADVERSITY!

Excellent win for the Lakers, they are gearing up for the home stretch, they are peaking just at the right time. I hope they continue to improve their team defense, hope they are all healthy before and during the playoffs...the Lakers are dangerous and hard to beat during the playoffs....3 peat and beyond....

I have a good name for the New Celtics: Boston Mercenaries. Sheet, when will they stop cobbling together hired "help" for the playoffs?

Spurs have 4 championships and are eyeballing a 5th. That is all.

This is the most poorly monitored comment line I have seen online in years.
Wake up Los Angeles Times!

Very nice WIN, Lakeshow!

Now, you guys just stay healthy and we're locked-in for another 3peat.

LAKERS ALL DAY!!!

Its funny how people hate on the Lakers!!! Just because they are the best doesn't mean you have to hate. You want to know whats really sad. The Spurs having 3 championships and seeing you hate the BEST TEAM EVER!!! There are some fouls that the Refs dont call sometimes. And dont act like Kobe is the only one who does it. Every player does it so dont even start trying to put that s**t only on Kobe. GO HATE SOMEWHERE ELSE!!

Spurs better kick it up a notch to beat the Lakers.
