San Antonio Spurs Lose To Lakers To End Regular Season, Start Playoffs Sunday

The NBA model of consistency, the San Antonio Spurs, couldn’t do it again suffering just their second losing streak of the year and falling 113-100 to the visiting Los Angeles Lakers on the last day of the regular season.

It’s insane to think these Spurs, who endured one of the worst ever ways to lose an NBA Finals game last year and have had their fair share of injuries on top of Gregg Popovich constantly juggling the lineup, were one win away from tying the 2005-06 Spurs for most victories in franchise history. Also to only suffer two skids (the first came Jan. 26-29) through 82 games is unfathomable after making the Finals.

There must be something in the water they drink or the veins of Popovich that keeps San Antonio’s biological clock ticking. Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and even Tony Parker continue to get older yet for the past 15 years all the Spurs have done is win 50 games each regular season.

    So D’Antoni is pretty much all but fired? I didn’t watch the Lakers too much this season, who did lol, but it seems like his players believed in him and played hard. Also he dealt with arguably the worst injuries in the league. What do you think?

    Hey Texas. I don’t know how much of it is D’Antoni’s fault, but since Mike Brown was fired after a 1-4 start in his second season D’Antoni has to be fired soon. I caught several Lakers games and they surprised some, but never seemed honed in defensively. The injuries might be the only reason he’s not fired; however, if Kobe Bryant returns next year and they suffer a skid of any sort D’Antoni will be fired during the season.
