- +

Tony Parker led five San Antonio players in double figures as the Spurs beat the depleted, dispirited Los Angeles Lakers 103-82 to knock them out of the NBA playoffs. 

Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs heads off Pau Gasol of the Los Angeles Lakers in the second half of Game Four of the 2013 NBA Playoffs at Staples Center on April 28, 2013 in Los Angeles, California. The Spurs defeated the Lakers 103-82.

Parker scored 23 points as San Antonio completed a four-game sweep in the best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series -- the first time the 16-time champion Lakers had been swept in a first-round series since the playoffs expanded to 16 teams in the 1983-84 season.
