Five things to watch: Spurs vs. Lakers

The Spurs are riding a four-game losing skid heading into Sunday night’s game versus the Lakers.

SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Spurs (6-11) will look to snap their four-game losing skid Sunday night as they visit the Los Angele Lakers (4-10). The Spurs and Lakers will meet for the first time this season.


The Spurs are coming off a 119-97 road loss versus the Clippers.

Jakob Poeltl had 20 points and eight rebounds to lead the team while Doug McDermott added 13 points. Keldon Johnson finished with 11 points and two rebounds while Keita Bates-Diop recorded nine points.

“They [Clippers] came out firing,” Tre Jones said. “It was one of those games. We tried to answer and slowly chip away at the lead. Usually, when a team is shooting like that, shots start to not fall. We can slowly get back into it. They just kept making plays and making those threes.”
