TNT will be making a live stream available as the Los Angeles Lakers' season is on the line as they face the San Antonio Spurs in Game 4 of this Western Conference matchup with tip off at 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. ET.
The Spurs will look to put this series away with another victory. They lead the series 3-0 and they have relied on the same guys over and over again. It's been Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili still leading the Spurs to wins. It's interesting to point out, that with the Oklahoma City Thunder missing Russell Westbrook, the Spurs become immediate favorites to win the Western Conference. Of course, the games have to be played, but Westbrook is a huge part of what that team does every game.
For the Lakers, the end is near. They might as well have D-League players take the court as they will be out with their major role players. There will be no Steve Nash, Jodie Meeks or Metta World Peace. Suddenly, one of the more dominant NBA teams in the past decade looks feeble opening up competition in the West in the following years, unless they make great moves over the break.
Win today and the Lakers avoid the inevitable and will force the Spurs to eliminate them in Texas. Look for Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard and Antawn Jamison to step it up if they are going to make this happen.
