Kevin Arnovitz breaks down the fourth quarter meltdown

I'm not entirely sure if Lakers fans are ready to re-live the final eight minutes-plus of the team's 100-81 loss to the Spurs Sunday afternoon, but in terms of diagnosing what went wrong for the purple and gold what follows below is a great breakdown of the... um, action.

Again, friend-of-the-blog Kevin Arnovitz delivers some video and commentary highlighting those ways in which the game went off the rails.

Instructive stuff, particularly since these teams could certainly meet in the first round of the playoffs.

Our thanks to Kevin for again taking the time to put together a great reel.
