The Los Angeles Lakers got blown out of their own building Friday night as the San Antonio Spurs beat them 120-89 at the Staples Center to take a commanding 3-0 lead in their NBA Western Conference first round playoff series. Although it's hard to pin the full blame for the team's poor performance on Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni, especially with Kobe Bryant out with injury, some fans in attendance began chanting for the return of former head coach Phil Jackson with "We Want Phil!" The Lakers got pounded so bad that even Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak couldn't watch the final moments of the game, as this video shows Kupchak leaving his seat and began heading for the tunnel with two minutes left in the fourth quarter.
