2013 NBA Playoffs: Billy Horschel Unable To Propel Lakers To Playoff Win

2013 Zurich Classic of New Orleans champion, Billy Horschel couldn’t use the momentum he took away from TPC Louisiana on Sunday evening to propel his Los Angeles Lakers to a playoff win against the San Antonio Spurs. His buddy, Andrew Goudelock was only able to hit 7 of 17 from the floor for a 41.2 % effort in the final game of the year for the Lakers, but they were still beaten like a drum by the Spurs.

Horschel was to able to pick up the first win of his career on Sunday, but the Lakers will be cleaning out their lockers and booking tee times until the start of the 2013-2014 season.

San Antonio Point Guard, Tony Parker put on a show in the series finale, hitting on 9 of 16 from the floor, with 23 points, three rebounds and four assists, beating the Lakes 103 to 82 and sending fans for the exits. It’s unclear what the Lakers will do for next year, but their chances were slim against the 2007 Champion Spurs.  The Lakers were probably not going to win this series anyway, but when star Kobe Bryant went down, the job got a lot harder.

Lakers forward, Pau Gasol lead the Lakers with 16 points and 8 rebounds, on 8 of 12 shooting in 35 minutes from the floor. The Lakers, especially without Bryant, couldn’t find anyone to put the rock in the hole. I don’t care how well you play the floor, if you can’t score in the NBA, you are not going to win many games, let alone a playoff game against a team with the talent possessed by the San Antonio Spurs.
