Lakers drop third game this week

The LA Lakers lost to the San Antonio Spurs last night, 108 – 105.  Tony Parker of the Spurs reached a milestone in his career with the achievement of 5.000 career assists (remember in the Lakers’ last game, Steve Nash became the 5th NBA player in history to achieve 10,000 career assists).  Congrats to Tony Parker.  Meanwhile, this was not all bleak for the Lakers who are playing without three key players (Howard, Gasol, and Hill).  They made a huge second half run at the Spurs and played with a level of emotion and intensity that has been lacking.  Perhaps this is in fact a turning point for “the” team from LA.  Once Howard and Gasol return (soon), if they can continue to play with this kind of passion, perhaps things can begin to turn.  I still look for them to make the playoffs.  They will next play on Friday night at 10:30pm EST when they host OKC.
