Bertans scores 11 points; Spurs lose to Lakers

Bertans scores 11 points; Spurs lose to Lakers

They struggle in points per game (#26), steals per game (#20) and three point percentage (#18). San Antonio rallied again thanks in part to another timely three-pointer by Green and an electric alley-oop dunk by Davis Bertans. He made 11 of his 20 attempts from the field, for a 55.0% field goal percentage (1/2 from the line, 6/11 from three-point range).

"Just try to be aggressive, a lot of stuff went my way tonight, we needed it you know, try to get a win", Parker said. "Keep competing.' That's the only thing you can control", Pau said.

The Grizzlies rank 24th in three pointers attempted per game (26.3) while the Spurs rank 27th (24.5).

It was another galling loss for the Spurs, who gave up another double-digit lead when victory appeared to be in hand.

San Antonio were the latest victim of the surging Pelicans on Wednesday, going down 116-121 to New Orleans. The Silver and Black lost their fourth consecutive game for the first time since January 2002.

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker (9) drives past Memphis Grizzlies guard Kobi Simmons (2). As long as they believe in each other and keeping working as hard as they are, we're going to be in good shape. "It's pouring hard right on us".

The Spurs were wary of the Lakers, who have five in a row. Los Angeles are playing well, but these odds are too affected by form - San Antonio should be able to beat a significantly lower quality team by more than four points on their home floor. The Spurs ended a two-game losing streak but won for just the second time in eight games.

Julius Randle scored a game-high 25 points to lead the Lakers, who improved to 28-34 with their fifth consecutive victory. The UCLA product finished with 18 points, 11 assists and seven boards, and new teammate Isaiah Thomas has been very impressed by the young guard.

Former Laker Pau Gasol led the Spurs with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Nance added 22 points and 15 rebounds.

The Lakers have been given a 4.5 point head start by oddsmakers, and expect the Spurs to cover this, albeit by a narrow margin.

Nikola Vucevic scored 15 points and collected 12 rebounds while Aaron Gordon chipped in 13 points to lead Orlando. L.A. shot 38.6 percent (17/44) overall and 50 percent (7/14) from beyond the arc in the first two quarters.
