A weird thing happened in Game 1, the Lakers (0-1) had trouble making baskets instead of preventing the other team from scoring. Usually, it's the other way around.
What's even stranger is the scoring efficiency for both teams. The Lakers actually had a better percentage in shooting at 41.1% versus 37.6% for the San Antonio Spurs (1-0). Of course, the purple and gold did turn the ball over 18 times resulting in 14 points for San Antonio and allowed 18 points from Tony Parker after holding him to just 4 points in their final meeting of the season at Staples Center last time.
But the difference in the game is the bench scoring.no comments
