Lakers Vs. Spurs Score: San Antonio's Big Three Running Away With The Game

The Los Angeles Lakers closed out the second quarter well and cut the San Antonio Spurs' lead to just four points at the break, but San Antonio responded with an absolutely stellar third quarter. Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker were all terrific offensively, and the Spurs lead 91-73 at the end of the third quarter.

Ginobili isn't taking a lot of shots or playing extended minutes, but he's been incredibly efficient. He has 20 points on 6-8 shooting in just 20 minutes of play. Duncan has 21 points, while Parker has 20 points and 10 assists. The Spurs are shooting a ridiculous 62 percent from the floor, and they already have 21 assists in the game.

Kobe Bryant has upped his game in the third quarter, but he's not getting a ton of help and the Spurs have been too good on offense for Bryant's scoring to make much of a difference. He has 18 points on 7-12 shooting, with 11 of those points coming in the third quarter.
