Spurs clinch playoff berth with win over Lakers in LA

LOS ANGELES (NBA.com exclusive) -- Before the game Spurs coach Gregg Popovich joked about hiding from the Lakers come playoff time.

If Sunday's showing at Staples Center was any indication, the Spurs won't be too far out of the defending champs' sight.

Behind the one-two punch of Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan, the Spurs went on to throttle the Lakers, 100-81.

"Unbelievable victory," said Ginobili, who finished with 32 points on 10-for-22 shooting. "I would say like two months ago it wasn't even in our wildest dreams to win a game by (19) against the Lakers."

The two teams have now split the regular season meetings, 2-2, with the Spurs having won by 20 points on Jan. 12 in San Antonio and now 19.

Minus a blip against the hapless Nets, San Antonio (47-29) has put together an impressive nine-day stretch with noteworthy victories against Cleveland, Boston, Orlando and now Los Angeles.

"We're playing our best basketball," Popovich said.

As for the Lakers (55-22), the up-and-down second half of the season continues.

After easily dispatching a formidable Jazz team Friday, the Lakers took a step back. Sunday's loss was just their sixth home defeat to 33 wins and their 10th double-digit loss this season.

"We want to end these last five games on a good note," said Pau Gasol, who had a season-high 32 points on 13-for-20 shooting. "We have to feel good about ourselves going into the playoffs. That's important, so obviously we want consistency."

Kobe Bryant had another woeful outing offensively.

After going 5-for-23 the game before, Bryant went 8-for-24 for 22 points. At one point, he missed eight straight.

"I just missed a lot of opportunities, and I can live with that," Bryant said. "I'm going to get those looks in the playoffs and I'll take my chances there."

Despite Bryant's struggles the Lakers, who trailed by as many as 15 in the first half, managed to crawl to within 71-69 at the 8:39 mark.

But that was the closest they would get.

The Spurs broke the game wide-open with a 16-3 run. Duncan, who finished with 24 points on 10-for-14 from the field and 11 rebounds, and Ginobili accounted for 14 of those points.

"He's taken over the team," said Popovich of Ginobili. "He kept us together.

"We just switched off between going to him and going to Timmy. They played together well."

The Argentinean hit a crucial 3-pointer at the top of key with his team only up 71-69. Later, off balance and crouching over, Ginobili dug the ball from his feet and flipped it in. Ginobili then sapped the life out of Staples Center with a rainmaker from the right wing for an 87-72 lead with 5:10 to go.

"I'm playing with a ton of confidence," said Ginobili, who in the last eight games is averaging 29.2 points and shooting 53.9 percent. "(I have that) that I'm going to make a big shot."

The Spurs, who shot 48.7 percent to the Lakers' 40.7, did their damage in the second and fourth quarters, outscoring the Lakers 59-38.

The only bad news to come out of this game for San Antonio was the loss of starting point guard George Hill. With three minutes left in the second quarter, Hill sprained his right ankle after stepping on Derek Fisher's right foot. Hill did not return.

A team spokesperson said X-rays were negative, but Popovich said Hill could not put any weight on his ankle after the game.

If Hill were to miss any games it may come at the most inopportune time especially with Tony Parker, who at the earliest will be back two games before the end of the regular season, still out with a broken right hand.

"A little worried about everything that's coming up now without George," Popovich said. "It's going to be difficult to sustain that and have Manu play point in all these games coming up."

This game had its fair share of physicality, especially in the final minute of the second quarter.

Ron Artest and Ginobili drew offsetting technicals after getting tangled up before the ball was inbounded. A second later, Artest fouled Ginobili. During that dead ball situation, Bryant was whistled for his own technical foul.

Ginobili pinpointed that moment as a turning point for him.

"(Artest) wanted to get into me and get under my skin," he said. "It makes you feel kind of good that they are trying to get you off your game and try to mess with you."

The Spurs, who sit in the seventh slot, are jostling for playoff seeding with six games remaining, but Sunday's win assured them a playoff berth for the 13th consecutive season.

"(The race for seeding) is the toughest it's ever been," said Popovich pregame.

NOTES: Lakers forward Luke Walton, who has been out since Feb. 10 with a pinched nerve in his back, played 7:56. He was held scoreless and had two assists.
