SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Spurs limped into the playoffs losers in seven of their last 10 games. The natives were, naturally, restless.
Sunday afternoon at the AT&T Center, the Spurs got back to form by opening the Western Conference playoffs with a 91-79 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. But don't go talking about flipping switches on around the Spurs.
"I hate to say the term "switch on,' '' forward Tim Duncan said. "We don't want to do that.
"We want to stay consistent throughout. We know what the playoffs are about and it's good to see us show up in the first game.''
