LATER, LOS ANGELES?
Reports out of Los Angeles speculate that if the Lakers are able to re-sign Dwight Howard this summer, the team may use its amnesty provision on Pau Gasol.
The Los Angeles Lakers dropped the first game of their Western Conference playoff series to the San Antonio Spurs in a humblingÂ fashion 91-79. Â
That did not stop them from making a few big plays along the way.Â
Dwight HowardÂ came through with 20 points and 15 rebounds.
Pau Gasol managed to also double-double with 16 and 16 with six assists.

Some fans will do the most to get noticed. One female Laker fan who is obviously an avid blog reader decided to create a sign to get Dwight Howardâ€™s attention. When she wasnâ€™t sure if he noticed her at the game, she decided to hit him up on Twitter and he responded.
Interesting, Dwightâ€™s reply was to show the young lady the error of her attention seeking ways:
If the Lakers were looking for bulletin board material against the Spurs, Rockets GM Daryl Morey has provided it. See what he said.

Doesnâ€™t sound like Nash really believes he will be that affective and putting the pressure on Dâ€™Antoni to get him out of there if he isnâ€™t.
â€śHeâ€™s got to coach this team to win the game and if Iâ€™m not helping, and Iâ€™m not capable, heâ€™s got to get me out,â€ť Nash said. â€śBottom line: Thereâ€™s no time to be sentimental or to give me too long of a leash. If I canâ€...
The Phoenix Suns have opted to change course a year after losing Steve Nash and finishing in last place in the Western Conference. The organization has been lost in the woods even in those last years with Nash playing point guard, but moving on and moving forward has been difficult.
The organization fired coach Alvin Gentry midway through the season after he went 13-28. Now they...
The matchup of the game for Game 2 will be between San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker and Los Angeles Lakers' Steve Blake.
Tony Parker ended Game 1 with 18 points, but it wasn't a vintage Parker-like performance. He looked a step slow and still may be bothered by the ankle injury he suffered weeks ago and Steve Blake took full advantage of that. Parker shot 8-21 from...
