It Could Get Ugly Again The San Antonio Spurs...

It Could Get Ugly Again

The San Antonio Spurs' 87-82 victory over the Lakers on Monday in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinal series was much like the playoff series between the teams last season. The Spurs failed to score 90 points in any of the five games and the Lakers topped that total only twice and never reached 100. A look at that series and Game 1 of the current series, with regular-season statistics (shaded) included as a means for comparison:
