The Los Angeles Lakers are in trouble. Big, big trouble.

Game 3 of the San Antonio/LA series will take place later tonight at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The Spurs enter this game with a 2-0 lead in the series. The Los Angeles Lakers are having to cope without the services of Kobe Bryant, who suffered an injury to his Achilles tendon late in the season.

As if that wasn't bad enough, Steve Blake is definitely out for tonight's game, while Steve Nash and Jodie Meeks are both doubtful.

Even with a healthy team, the Lakers would be underdogs against the Spurs. Without Bryant and Steve Nash? It seems downright impossible that the Lakers could come back to win this series.
