We broke down some of the more intriguing numbers from LAL’s 113-100 win at San Antonio:
Postseason appearances for San Antonio since its inaugural season in 1976, including this year. Only the Lakers have more playoff berths (35) during that 38-year span.
Minutes averaged from the Spurs’ normal starters that suited up. Gregg Popovich elected to sit Tim Duncan for the game and didn’t play Tony Parker the second half. Thirteen different players saw at least 12 minutes as San Antonio had already clinched the No. 1 overall seed throughout the playoffs coming into the game.
Players in double figures for the Lakers, including all five starters. As a team, L.A. was efficient from the floor, shooting 49.5 percent overall and 40.7 percent from the three-point line.
Three-point makes for Kendall Marshall without a miss. On the year, Marshall finished 11th among all point guards in three-point field goal percentage (38.5).
Turnovers for the Lakers in the first and third quarters. As such, L.A. outscored San Antonio 68-47 over those two periods that essentially turned out to be the difference in the game.
