Posted Friday April 19, 2013, About: Can Steve Blake save the Lakers?
I'm a big Laker fan and appreciate the improvement in defense the last few games. They are not better players, but Meeks and Morris are quicker and play better defense than the combo of Kobe and Nash. And Pau and Howard have really stepped it up. But unfortunately, the fact is they have no closer, and have shot only 36% in the last two games.

The only way they can compete is if both Parker and Ginobili remain hurt (a balance to Kobe's absence). If that is the case it could go 6 or 7. If the spurs are mostly healed, it wont go more than 5.
