Staff writer Lonnie White breaks down keys to Game 1 and looks forward to Game 2:
Three keys from Game 1
Kobe's time--Bryant showed why he's the NBA's MVP once he took over.
Stop penetration--Lakers were often hurt by Tony Parker's dribble drives.
Duncan factor--Where's Kwame? Lakers' big men struggled to defend Tim Duncan.
Three keys for Game 2
Early start--Lakers need to realize conference finals start at 6 and not 7:30 p.m.
Rest--Expect the Spurs to have more stamina and play smarter with more sleep.
Foul trouble--Spurs can't afford to have Bruce Bowen on the bench because of fouls.
