Update: The Lakers look at the Spurs as one of their true rivals in the NBA. The Lakers have lost both contests with the Spurs this season, by 15 in San Antonio and by one on a last-second tip-in. As good as the Lakers have been on defense during their six-game winning streak, they will face a Spurs team that runs an efficient offense. The Spurs average 103.7 points per game, sixth-best in the NBA. They give up 96.6 points per game, 11th-best in the league. The Spurs have a big three in Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker, who returned earlier than expected after straining a calf muscle.
