The Spurs suffered their first home loss of the 2019-20 season Sunday at the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers. The loss follows the team’s first road trip which included back-to-back games; falling to the Clippers 103-97, and defeating a depleted Warriors team 127-110.
Sunday’s home loss brings the Spurs overall record to 4-2, dropping two of the last 3 games. Despite overcoming a 19 point deficit, the Lakers length and athleticism proved too much to overcome. Lebron James finished the game with a 21 point, 11 rebound, and 13 assist triple-double. Newly acquired Anthony Davis added a double-double with 25 points and 11 rebounds. Dwight Howard also had a double-double in the Lakers win chipping in 14 points and 13 rebounds.
Dejounte Murray led the Spurs with 18 points and 11 rebounds while also dishing out 4 assists in only 24 minutes. Murray; still recovering from a season ending knee injury last preseason, is playing under strict minute restrictions.
