San Antonio Spurs vs. L.A. Lakers: Game 4 Postgame Grades and Analysis

It's all over.

The San Antonio Spurs completed the first-round sweep of the decimated Los Angeles Lakers, toiling with them to the tune of a 103-82 victory.

Los Angeles committed eight turnovers in the first quarter but found itself down by just six. San Antonio then proceeded to open things up in the second, outscoring the Lakers 26-14, taking a 18-point lead into the half.

The Lakers came out in the third quarter looking to make one last stand. Everyone except Dwight Howard did anyway. He was ejected midway through the period after receiving his second technical of the game.

Sans Dwight, Pau Gasol and crew were unable to lessen the Spurs' hold on the outcome of this game. San Antonio was just too deep and too consistent on both ends of floor.

The Lakers' offseason now begins much earlier than initially anticipated, as does all of the drama that will come with it.
