Now Ive just got to work on getting guys in their spots and just getting what we want in the half-court offence.He could look to the Spurs for the blueprint on how to do so.San Antonio used balanced scoring to cruise after jumping out to a 17-point lead in the first quarter against a Lakers team that was already minus Steve Nash and rookie Julius Randle before losing Bryant.The Spurs led by as many as 23 points and outrebounded the Lakers 52-40.San Antonio shot 6 for 23 in the third quarter, but still maintained a double-digit lead.Wesley Johnsons 3-pointer pulled the Lakers within 76-66 with 10 minutes remaining in the game.Theyre NBA players, Leonard said of the rally.

Just give them credit for fighting the whole 48 minutes.San Antonio responded with a 7-0 run in the ensuing minute, including a 3-pointer by Patty Mills after he stripped Ronnie Price of the inbounds pass.Coming off a humbling 104-81 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night, the Spurs were not about to let this one get away.Its easier to focus, to be ready when you were embarrassed, Ginobili said.
