Every team has a tipping point and the Lakers came by the hands of the San Antonio Spurs at STAPLES last night. The Lakers may have rallied back from an eight point deficit in the fourth but a buzzer-beating tip-in by Antonio McDyess crushed the home side 89-88. Thanks to the last roll of the 'dyce' once again the Lakers couldn't roll with the big opponents., just when it looked like Odoms three-pointer and Gasol's free throws where enough. Still this is basketball and of course a lot can happen in 4.6 seconds. Kobe had 16 points to go with 10 assists and 9 rebounds as he almost clinched a triple-double. Andrew Bynum recorded a double two however with 10 and 10, plus a career-high six assists. For the Spurs Parker was clicking with 21 points while All-Star Ginobili had 14 points and 8 assists. The game was tight but the Lakers where let down behind the arc. With 14.3% the Lakers only made 2 of 14 shots which is another reason why they where beaten in downtown L.A. by San Antonio. Time for the Lakers to make good away from home as the Grammy's force them to hit the road against the Sacramento Kings. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
