We broke down some of the more intriguing numbers from LAL’s 119-85 loss at San Antonio:
Wins for Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili as a trio. The victory moved them ahead of the Lakers threesome of Magic Johnson, Michael Cooper and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (490) and into second place all-time in NBA history amongst trios. They now only trail Boston’s Robert Parrish, Kevin McHale and Larry Bird (540).
Bench points for San Antonio, with five reserves reaching double figures. No Spurs starter logged more than 22 minutes as their lead reached 27 points by halftime and swelled to as much as 35 in the second half.
Percentage of field goals made by the Lakers. Outside of Pau Gasol (8 of 16), the rest of the team struggled to generate much offense (23 of 75 combined) against the league’s fifth-best defense.
Plus-rating for Matt Bonner, a team high. Bonner recorded his first double-double of the season with 13 points (three triples), 10 rebounds, plus four assists in 26 minutes off the bench.
Three-pointers made for the Lakers out of 21 attempts (19.0 percent). Over the last eight contests, L.A. had averaged 12.2 makes per game and converted at a 47.6 percent clip from beyond the arc.
