Lakers, Spurs, NBA Playoffs, Los Angeles In the latest of our continuing series, we look at Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals, as the Lakers visit San Antonio.1. All eyes on Manu. (And Turiaf.) How bad is Manu's ankle? Bad enough the Spurs coaching staff considered locking him in the showers before Friday's Game 2. A warning regarding San Antonio's plausible plight with a continually gimpy Ginobili should be valued without my dictation, but: the Spurs desperately need Manu to play OK or better in order to win.
