The San Antonio Spurs will play their final back-to-back of the season against the Los Angeles Lakers. A look at how to watch it online.
On Wednesday night, the San Antonio Spurs will return to the court. It’s for the second part of a back-to-back in Los Angeles. Part one was a loss to the Clippers, including a 19-point lead that disappeared. Part two will be against the Lakers at the Staples Center.
With the defeat, the Silver and Black fell to No. 5 in the Western Conference standings. At the moment, it leaves them without homecourt advantage for the first round of the playoffs, with the No. 4-seed Utah Jazz as the opponent.
However, the playoff picture remains in flux. That’s due to the Denver Nuggets’ latest win that closed the gap between No. 4 and 10 to two games. The Clippers even sit within three games of that fourth seed. It leaves possibilities open for each playoff matchup, except for the Houston Rockets at No. 1 and the Golden State Warriors at 2.
This makes the Lakers game a must-win for San Antonio. A loss pushes them down the standings and closer to No. 9. A victory leaves them one game away from clinching a playoff spot. Will this potentially tired team be up to the task?
