SAN ANTONIO (AP) - It's been a rough last month for the San Antonio Spurs heading into the playoffs.
San Antonio enters its first-round series against the Los Angeles Lakers having lost three straight and seven of 10. Injuries limited Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili in the final month of the regular season and the team also waived key reserve Stephen Jackson on April 12 after he disagreed with his role on the team.
It all makes for unsteady footing for a team renowned for its rock-solid foundation.
The Spurs and Lakers open their seven-game series on Sunday in San Antonio.
