Ginobili stars in Spurs win
published: Tuesday | May 27, 2008

SAN ANTONIO (AP):

Manu Ginobili broke out of his scoring slump with 30 points and the San Antonio Spurs beat the Los Angeles Lakers 103-84 in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals on Sunday.

Tim Duncan added 22 points and Tony Parker had 20 for the Spurs, who have not lost at home this postseason. The Lakers lead the series 2-1. Game 4 is today in San Antonio.

The Spurs squandered a 20-point lead to lose Game 1 in Los Angeles and the Lakers routed them in game 2. The Spurs did not want to be in the position of having to make league history by being the first team to come back from an 0-3 hole.

Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 30 points and Paul Gasol scored 15. Lamar Odom struggled all night, finishing 2-of-11 from the field for seven points. But he had six of the Lakers' 13 assists and 11 rebounds.

The Lakers also struggled at the free throw line, going just 8-of-17.

On Sunday, the Spurs got a lead midway through the second quarter and never looked back, despite a late surge from Bryant.

Up 69-57 entering the fourth, the Spurs opened with a 12-4 run, and Parker's layup gave them a 20-point lead a little over 8 minutes to play.Then Bryant did what Bryant does: almost single-handedly pulled his team out of the hole.
