Fancap: NBA-leading Spurs Trampled by LA

I agree with Magic Johnson, all the ABC guys and pretty much everyone who said last night that it was easily their best performance of the season.  The Lakers needed to show the NBA that even though San Antonio’s record is better, the Western Conference doesn’t belong to them.  It is still firmly a purple and gold country until proven otherwise.

Throughout the telecast, I heard the following words being bandied about with regard to the Lakers’ performance: avalanche, pummeling, ballooning lead, very shocking. The Lakers led 65-37 at the half and gave the Spurs their largest deficit of the season two baskets later.

It was a meeting of NBA giants and the Lakers rose magnificently to the occasion.  They have a tough road ahead for the next week, but I can honestly say that I have full confidence in them for the first time since the beginning of the year. The champs are back and they are here to stay.
