Probably the biggest factor in the loss tonight were the turnovers.
1. Do not turn the ball over.
This isn’t exactly a new problem, to say the least. L.A. gave up the rock 23 times against Denver Friday and still managed to win. Tonight … not so much. They were plenty sloppy in the first quarter, with six turnovers creating six points for San Antonio. Fortunately for the Lakers, San Antonio was equally generous, with five turnovers of their own. Both teams deserved more punishment than they got.

With 5:25 to play in the half, the game was tied at 41.
5:00 - Ramon Sessions blocked inside.
4:44 - Turnover (Matt Barnes).
4:08 - Turnover (Steve Blake).
3:05 - Turnover (Blake).
2:37 - Turnover (Pau Gasol).
2:16 - Turnover (Gasol).

How is Gronk’s head still attached!?
