Without Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake, Metta World Peace and Jodie Meeks, the short-handed Lakers had to play Game 4 against much stronger opponent. And in the early third quarter, Dwight Howard was ejected after receiving his second technical foul, which made thing even worse.

Kobe Bryant appeared on the team' s bench for the first time since his season-ending Achilles' tendon injury.

The Spurs'  Tony Parker scored a game-high 23 points, Kawhi Leonard had 13 points and Tim Duncan added 11 points. Tracy McGrady made his first show for Spurs with 5:15 left, contributing one assist and one steal.

Pau Gasol led the Lakers with 16 points, eight rebounds and five assists. Andrew Goudelock had 14 points. Dwight Howard only played 20 minutes and 34 seconds, finishing with seven points and eight rebounds.
