Default Was this a "Ugly Win" for the Lakers or a "Good Lost" for the Spurs?

I think if you are the Spurs you are not feeing that bad about tonight's game. They showed that in Game 1 they are clearly the better team when they led all night long and just had too many turnovers that allowed the Lakers to get back in the game. The Lakers look like they need Kobe to SHINE in every game to have a chance in each game and I don't see the Spurs losing on Friday Night. Yes a loss when you had a 20 point lead on the road is a tough loss but isn't actually a good loss for San Antonio??

You can't tell me the Spurs don't look like the better team after watching tonight's game. And that's why Greg Popovich was probably laughing at the Press Conference and Phil Jackson was not. Think About it.

Lakers had no business winning this game, 20 point deficit...no momentum, no one outside of Rad and Kobe had a good game...Gasol did step up, Farmar was better then expected...I know SA's Manu and Parker didn't exactly lit up the court tonight...but neither did our boys.

I think in the first 30 minutes we thought we can make the same cute passes we did against Denver & Utah...we were puzzled with all those turn overs, SA was outplaying us badly...then Kobe took over, he is that good.

We really need to start appreciating this guy, I didn't even jump in joy when Kobe hit that game winning shot...I expected him, I knew he'd make it...that's how terrific of a player he really is. Despite what Loki has to say.

I just hope Odom & Fisher can have a better game, as long as Kobe stays aggressive for the duration of an entire game...I feel really good about LA taking this series in 5 games, like I predicted.

I hope this was a wake up call for us, we got lucky...but we also played out of our element. Thankfully SA chocked the game away, maybe it was the lack of rest.

LA up 1-0!! I'm happy...

I think its too hard to tell what effect this will have... the Lakers definitely had an ugly game today and Spurs looked much more ready to play...BUT this is one of those demoralizing type games that might be hard to bounce back from. The first few minutes of game 2 will show exactly where both teams are at.

I want the Lakers to lose so badly. They don't deserve it. Get Pau Gasol from Grizzlies for nothing. Collusion!!!!

Kobe wants to leave but doesn't. Phil Jackson gets most talent AGAIN.

Anyway, Spurs are in trouble. Lakers just have too many weapons and of course, Kobe. It's over.

how was this an ugly win if the lake show came all the way back from 20-down? any mentally-healthy team would call it a rousing character win.

how was this a good loss if you blew a huge lead? a good loss is when you battled hard and almost won against difficult odds.

i'm sorry, but neither of your characterizations fit.

How about a good win for the Lakers? You don't come back from down 20 in the second half because you're lucky. Great win for LA but they didnt play up to their capabilities. I thought Elementally put it perfectly.."Great win, Good game"

Small Picture=Lakers won game 1

Big Picture=Lakers had to come back from 20 pts down to win

Bigger Picture-Lakers first lead of the game in Game 1 at home wasn't until the 4th quarter.

LMAO.....What game were YOU watching????
Kobe didn't even try to play in the first half, if he had the Lakers would have won by 20+ points.
Odom did absolutely nothing besides blocking Duncan once.
Fisher managed to dent the rim with a steady flow of bricks.
If you actually think the Lakers will play this poorly in the series you are delirious.
All the Spurs can hope and expect to improve upon is Ginobili hitting more shots.
If you blow a 20 point lead with the Lakers playing that bad you are dead meat.....better start booking that vacation now!!!

People need to stop whining about Gasol right now, it's a non-factor.
You don't see us whining about not having Ariza and Bynum this series, do you? I'd like to see SA without say Parker and K.Thomas for this series...that's equivalent to what we're missing right now.

Yeah, and there was no collusion between two former teammates in Ainge and McHale, right? Give me a break...
