Dejounte Murray’s passing was great vs. LAL. Made a ton of smart plays in first 3 quarters out in early/transition offense to get easy 3s. Then took over w/ two-man game w/ Jakob Poeltl late.
Had 15 assists vs. 2 TOs, and fed Poeltl w/ enough passes to get him career-high 27 pts pic.twitter.com/PplGv7RXBB1:43 AM

The triple take: Lakers 125, Spurs 121 (OT)
1. DeMar is no longer walking out of that phone booth in crunch time.
2. The free ones were costly tonight.
3. Here’s guessing KBD won’t be in the closing lineup every night

The #Lakers and #Dodgers didn’t get their championship parade in 2020 and wouldn’t have gotten one even if they had repeated this year but what if they were a part of a parade already scheduled? What if they were included in the 2022 ⁦@RoseParade⁩? arashmarkazi.substack.com/p/the-morning-…12:58 AM

Devin Vassell, frustrated at the Spurs not yet being able to get over the hump:
:We are right there. It is so frustrating being right there and not coming out with a victory, especially three times in a row, you know what I’m saying?” – 12:46 AM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
“I told Russ, I said, ‘Whether I play, ‘Bron play, we don’t play, it doesn’t matter. You still gotta be yourself.’ He did that tonight. The way he played tonight was incredible. And we need that from him every night.”

Quick @LockedOnLakers reaction to the Lakers’ 125-121 PT win over the Spurs. It was a big reminder of why stars matter. Huge performances from Russell Westbrook (33/10/8, only 3 TO) and Anthony Davis (35/17/4/4 blocks). @LockedOnNBAPods @LockedOnNetwork pic.twitter.com/QBDLMoSE9e12:08 AM

Westbrook only had 3 turnovers in 40 minutes tonight, which was key, vs. 8 assists. He missed a few open jumpers early in the clock, but was brilliant finishing at the rim, towards 33 points on 15 of 27 FG’s. – 11:44 PM

The Spurs shot a season low 55% from the free throw line tonight.

Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
I always enjoy the monthly tradition of Twitter discovering that Russell Westbrook is actually an incredible basketball player. – 11:21 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Pop said Dejounte Murray got a good look at the end of regulation, better than a shot that could have been drawn up. The shot just didn’t go in.
He said the bigs have been doing a great job of being ready for the pocket passes to score in the paint – 11:20 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
“I thought we played another really good game. They went toe to toe (with the Lakers).” – Coach Pop on the Spurs’ close game to the Lakers.
He said the worm will turn eventually. – 11:17 PM
Matthew Tynan @Matthew_Tynan
Spurs are gonna close out one of these games in the near future, but once again, this is going to be the main lingering growing pain this season. Little mistakes that pile up will kill you, especially when you don’t have the closer other teams do to clean things up at the end. – 11:15 PM
Ryan Ward @RyanWardLA
Lakers finish the game w/ some solid numbers from their stars:
AD: 35 pts, 17 rebs, 4 asts, 4 blks
Russ: 33 pts, 10 rebs, 8 asts, 3 stls (only 3 TOs)
Decent effort from role players:
Monk: 17 pts (BIG 3)
Reaves: 10 pts
Dwight: 8 rebs, 6 pts, 2 blks
DJ: 9 rebs, 7 pts, 2 blks – 11:14 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs also fall to 1-1 when leading by 10 points in a game.
They built a 12 point lead at one point in this game. – 11:12 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Sit Anthony Davis tomorrow night. Oklahoma City has no bigs. They’re one of the few teams in the NBA the Lakers could get away with 48 Dwight+DJ minutes against. Hell, could maybe even try some Melo at center minutes. – 11:11 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs are now 1-1 this season as favorites.
They became a 2 point favorite once the Lakers announced LeBron would miss the game. – 11:11 PM
StatMuse @statmuse
Fun fact: Russell Westbrook is shooting better from three than Damian Lillard this season.
They have made the same amount of threes. pic.twitter.com/lDiMg0GNnf11:11 PM

Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
Think tonight was one of the best case arguments for why you go out and get Russ if you’re the Lakers. His ability to just win you a game when LeBron is out through sheer force of will is very useful in the regular season. – 11:10 PM
Allen Sliwa @AllenSliwa
Lakers WIN in OT, 125-121…This team has a long way to go, no question about it…Got to improve on the Defensive side…
-AD 35pts 17rebs 4ast 4blks
-Russ 33pts 10rebs 8ast 3stls
-Monk 17pts
-Reaves 10pts
Next up, tomorrow night in OKC vs the Thunder…
@ESPNLosAngeles11:10 PM
Dave McMenamin @mcten
Lakers beat the Spurs 125-121 in OT w/o LeBron. AD 35p 17r 4a 4b; Westbrook 33p 10r 8a 3s; Monk 17p 3a and a +31 in 39 mins; Reaves 10p on 3-of-5; Dweande Howdan combine for 13p 17r 4b. LAL improves to 2-2 with chance to go over .500 tomorrow with a win in OKC – 11:09 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
At a bare minimum, this game was such an argument in favor of a) staggering Bron and Russ and b) keeping Rondo as far away from Russ as possible. We just saw what Russ can still do when he has full control of the offense. He needs 10-12 minutes of that per night. – 11:09 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Type of finish we’ve seen too often from Popovich when down late. Down 4, Lakers ball with 40 seconds left, team has no idea what to do, followed by a miss, no timeout and KBD dribbling it up and getting stripped from behind. – 11:09 PM

Final: Lakers 125, Spurs 121 (OT)
The Lakers improve to 2-2 behind big performances from Anthony Davis (35/17/4) and Russell Westbrook (33/10/8) — and w/o LeBron — in their first road test. Malik Monk and Austin Reaves stepped up in crucial moments.
Up next: at OKC tomorrow. – 11:08 PM
Michael Pina @MichaelVPina
that was a pretty huge overtime from westbrook. – 11:08 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Lakers win in OT: 125-121 over the Spurs.
Anthony Davis had 35, including the go-ahead bucket. Russell Westbrook had 33 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists. Combined 30 for 58 from the floor on a night without LeBron James. A surprisingly epic early season game. – 11:08 PM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Lakers don’t win that game over the past two years. This is a big part of why they traded for Russ. Makes it so much easier to rest LeBron on nights like this. – 11:08 PM
Ryan Ward @RyanWardLA
Lakers get their second win of the season. Gritty win without LeBron.
Next: @ Thunder – 11:08 PM

LAL opened a 6-point lead in OT on the emphatic Westbrook dunk, but SAS has responded with a 6-0 run to tie it up with 1:31 to play, scoring three straight times with an offensive foul on LAL setting a screen and a missed Westbrook pull-up J in between. – 11:04 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Jakob Poeltl has never had more than 20 points in an NBA game. Tonight he’s killing the Lakers in PNR, now up to 27 on 13 for 17 from the floor. – 11:04 PM

Kurt Helin @basketballtalk
Not sure an alley-oop to the guy who was just on the ground grabbing his knee is the Lakers’ best clutch time play. – 10:53 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Overtime it is.
LAL erased a 12-point 4th Q deficit to take a lead in crunch time, before Anthony Davis went down with about 35 seconds left, allowing SAS to tie the game up at 114.
Both teams missed attempts in the final 30. – 10:53 PM

Not sure I love the lob to AD right after he got up from what looked to be a painful knee injury as the go-to play in crunch time. – 10:53 PM

Spurs have mostly struggled to get good looks in the half court. With LAL scoring and getting back in transition, it’s totally flipped the game. – 10:38 PM
Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
What a shot from Russell Westbrook!???!!! – 10:38 PM

Terrific defense by Monk, hounding Derrick White into a bad spot on the floor, and a turnover. AK – 10:38 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Lakes have erased the Spurs 12 point lead and take the lead by 3
Poeltl then with a throw down dunk – 10:37 PM
Michael De Leon @mdeleon
Spurs defenders are taking too long to decide on going under the screen and giving Westbrook an easier layup opportunity. I’d prefer they give him space and let him jack up a shot than let him beat you to the rim – 10:37 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Furious LAL run here capped by a pull-up 2 from Reaves, and a 3 from Davis, to put LAL up 2 early in a period they entered trailing by 12.
Lakers scored on 9 straight possessions; Davis is up to 29 points, with 24 from Westbrook and 10 from Reaves. – 10:35 PM
Kurt Helin @basketballtalk
Anthony Davis has been so, so good — and everything the Lakers need him to be — to start this season. – 10:34 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Anthony Davis with the top of the key jumper to put the Lakers back on top, but Vassell answers with a three. Russ with a tough lay-up at the rim to tie.
Enjoyable tilt as we wind toward the finish. – 10:34 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Devin Vassell and Lonnie Walker IV EACH have 15 points from three tonight – 10:34 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Lakers came in allowing just 8.7 fastbreak points per game, 5th in the NBA.
Tonight, SAS have had their wings sprinting at every opportunity, and have 29 FB points. – 10:32 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Lakers have cut that Spurs 12 point lead down to 5 points with 8:48 left in the game – 10:31 PM
Michael Gallagher @MikeSGallagher
Don’t think the Doug McDermott (knee) injury is bad, but Devin Vassell looks like a 🚀 (he’s likely going to be the top fantasy add when I tweet it out later, if you want to get ahead of it) – 10:31 PM

‘Melo couldn’t miss last game, but he’s 0 for 5 here after missing a 3 out of the time out.
Mentioned on @SpectrumSN that SAS outscored LAL by 14 to close the 1st and 2nd Q’s, and the 3rd was worse, as San Antonio takes a 97-85 lead into the 4th.
SAS have 29 fast break points. – 10:21 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Lakers conceded a personal 9-0 run from Lonnie Walker, who hit B2B2B 3’s.
Bazemore didn’t get all the way out to offer a close contest on the first two, and the third came in transition after a missed 3 from Davis.
Turned a 3-point LAL lead into an 88-82 deficit. – 10:14 PM
Brad Turner @BA_Turner
Spurs back to back 3s to open 88-82 lead over Lakers. Spurs shooting 42.3% from 3 – 10:13 PM

Keldon’s 7 made free throws are the most by any Spurs player in this early season.
Before, it was Derrick with 4 made free throws – 9:58 PM

McDermott gets on the scoreboard with a 2 handed dunk on the break.
Spurs by 1
Spurs with 22 of their 71 points points on the fast break – 9:56 PM

Keldon becomes the 5th Spurs player in double figures with 11 points.
Keldon with 7 of his 11 from the FT line – 9:54 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Malik Monk becomes the third Laker in double figures. He’s got two dimes to go with 4 for 9 from the field. – 9:53 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
One other first half issue for LAL: lack of transition defense. Spurs had 17 fast break points to LAL’s 12. – 9:53 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Lakers struggled to close quarters, much like they did in the opener vs. GSW.
Spurs were +8 in the final 2:30 of the 1st Q, and +6 in the final 2:30 of the 2nd Q. – 9:53 PM
Chris Palmer @ChrisPalmerNBA
Crunching the numbers. LeBron is on pace to be the first player with 40,000 points and 10,000 assists. It will take about 3 1/2 years. – 9:43 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Spurs have four players in double figures at half: Murray (13), Vassell (11), Poeltl (10) and Walker (10).
Anthony Davis with 16 to lead the Bron-less Lakers. – 9:40 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
LAL held SAS to 40.7% FG’s in the 1st Q, but the Spurs rallied to shoot 52% in the 2nd, including a 3 just ahead of the buzzer to give SAS a 62-61 lead at the break.
Spurs were +12 on points off 3’s in the half, and LAL +5 at the FT line. – 9:39 PM
Brad Turner @BA_Turner
AD leads Lakers with 16 points, 7 rebounds and Russ has 12 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds in the first half – 9:39 PM

At the half, Lakers down 62-61…
-AD 16pts 7rebs

-Monk 8pts
Lakers just 3 of 13 from 3…Spurs with 4 guys in double figures… – 9:38 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
Halftime: Spurs 62, Lakers 61
The Lakers continue to close quarters poorly. Anthony Davis has 16 points, 7 rebounds and 2 blocks. Russell Westbrook has 12 points and 5 assists. Malik Monk, Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo have helped fill some of the offensive void without LeBron. – 9:38 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Anthony DAvis with 16 points, Russ with 12 points, 5 assists and 4 rebounds. – 9:38 PM

Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
For the third game in a row, the Spurs are facing a team that could/should have them overmatched and they’re hanging in.
Walker’s 3-pointer with 0.9 left in the half gives them a 62-61 edge at intermession. – 9:38 PM
Tom Orsborn @tom_orsborn
Spurs heat up from downtown late in 2Q to take a 62-61 lead into halftime. Entertaining game for a crowd heavy with Lakers fans. – 9:38 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
Big 3-pointer by Lonnie Walker to put the Spurs up 62-61 at the half. Lakers scored 36 points in the paint, but have had trouble sticking to San Antonio’s shooters, who are 7 for 18 from beyond the arc. Lakers just 3 for 13 from deep. – 9:37 PM
Brad Turner @BA_Turner
Lakers down 62-61 at the half to the Spurs. – 9:37 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon

Murray is the 3rd Spurs player in double figures after he drills the three.
Tied game at 56 all – 9:33 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
With AD at the 5 on the last few trips since Howard checked out, Davis had 5 plays getting the better of Poeltl, resulting in an and-1 hoop, 1 of 2 FT’s, and a baseline spin move for a dunk on O, plus a block of Poeltl defensively, and influencing a miss in the paint. – 9:32 PM

Spurs with 15 of their 35 points on the fast break – 9:12 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
First quarter: Spurs 29, Lakers 27
A sloppy end to the quarter cost the Lakers their early lead. Anthony Davis has been aggressive early, scoring 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting. The Lakers have 20 points in the paint already. Spurs have 7 points off of the Lakers’ 4 turnovers. – 9:08 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
After Q1: Spurs 29, Lakers 27.
San Antonio finish outscoring the Lakers 20-10 in the last 5:11. Turnovers hurting, with the Lakers giving up 7 points off of giveaways already. – 9:07 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
1Q: Spurs by 2, after falling behind by 8
Poeltl, Vassell 6 pts each | Davis 10 pts

Spurs 7 pts off turnovers
Spurs 13 fast break points – 9:07 PM
Brad Turner @BA_Turner
Lakers turn the ball over 4 times and trail the Spurs 29-27 end of first quarter. AD has 10 points, 6 rebounds, Russ 2 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists. – 9:06 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
LAL looked great early with the starters tonight, but the game flipped with the bench units in, as SAS erased an early 8-point deficit to take a 29-27 lead into the 2nd Q. – 9:06 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Spurs with seven points off turnovers in the 1Q. It’s been a consistent part of their game so far this season. – 9:05 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Since ALMOST going down by 10, the Spurs have fought back and now hold a 4 point lead – 9:04 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
All due respect to Jakob, but the Spurs don’t have a player who really can consistently challenge the Lakers at the rim. The Lakers are responding with a million lob attempts. – 8:57 PM
Bill Oram @billoram
A 3 by Lonnie Walker, or, as I call him: “Walker: Texas Long-Ranger” – 8:57 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
I had a tweet ready to go, but then Lonnie drilled the Spurs’ first three of the night.
SA cuts the Lakers lead down to 5.
Lakers with 14 of their 17 points in the paint – 8:57 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Lakers guards doing a much better job competing defensively. They have 4 deflections less than 6 minutes in, continuing to compete getting around screens. – 8:56 PM
Jovan Buha @jovanbuha
This has been the best stretch of play we’ve seen from DeAndre Jordan this season. Two quick blocks, altered a couple of other shots, and is being the type of presence the Lakers need when they play bigger. – 8:56 PM
Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Westbrook is really feeding his bigs tonight. Five assists already, not including a missed dunk from AD that was over the rim.
LAL lead 15-9, with SAS shooting 3 of 15 on the other end as LAL’s length has bothered them inside. – 8:55 PM

LAL take an 11-8 lead into the first time out here in San Antonio, with @Anthony Davis getting a number of good looks, going 3 for 8 for 6 points.
With Jakob Poeltl on Jordan, SAS have had Keldon Johnson defending Davis, and Davis is getting what he wants. – 8:49 PM

The budding two-man chemistry between Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook has been on display early against the Spurs. – 8:49 PM

Jakob and Keldon with all 8 points for the Spurs – 8:47 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Keldon Johnson starts off the game guarding Anthony Davis on defense.
SA has had Keldon guard bigs early this season like Wendell Carter Jr. in the first game – 8:42 PM

GP2 is about to be the first sub off the bench. Watching him get plugged in as a defensive stopper is reminiscent of the early days of Jimmy Butler in Chicago. Thibs plugged him in to cover Kobe, Carmelo, etc. and slow the tempo. That was his only job before his game blossomed. – 8:25 PM

I’d probably be cautious with LeBron and sit him on both ends of this back-to-back. Not only does he get the rest, but you get two games of Melo playing big minutes at the 4, which is a nice chance to just spam the Russ-AD pick-and-roll with proper spacing and see how it looks. – 5:31 PM
