Dwight Howard led the Lakers with 20 points and 15 rebounds. The Lakers shot fairly decent, however their 18 turnovers to San Antonio’s 9, was definitely a game changer.
Sitting out with a torn Achilles, Kobe Bryant really has become somewhat of a social media “junkie.” Throughout the game, Bryant reportedly tweeted various comments on his teams performance. According to his teammates Bryant’s tweets really don’t bother them, D’Antoni said “He’s a fan right now. He’s a fan and you guys put a little more importance on that kind of fan, but he’s a fan. He gets excited and he wants to be part of it, so that’s good.”
Wednesday, is game 2 and we’ll see if the Lakers can make the proper adjustments to stop the Spurs from running away with this series.
