The Clippers got over their first loss of the season, which was a lackluster 85-83 home loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, by beating the Memphis Grizzlies on the road 99-88 in their last game.
The Spurs also got over their first win of the season with a win in their last game. In a home and away series they lost at home to the Utah Jazz, but on the road yesterday they crushed them 100-86.
The loss at home matched their loss total from last season when they only dropped 1 game all season in their house.
The Clippers rank tied for 21st in the league in points per game and they are winning with their defense, which ranks #1 in the league in terms of opponents’ points per game.
In their win over the Grizzlies in their last game the Clippers did not have a good shooting night at all, but they played solid D holding the Griz to a FG% of only 36.9%.
The Clippers had to play good defense since their big guns struggled with their shot. Chris Paul scored 27, but was only 6/16 from the floor and Blake Griffin only went for 14 points and was 5/13 from the floor.
Griffin had been averaging 20 ppg on the season, but in his last 2 games he has scored 14 in ach going a combined 12/34 from the field.
One player the Spurs really have to worry about is DeAndre Jordan, who dominated the glass in the win over the Grizzlies to the tune of 21 boards including 6 offensive boards.
Last season the Clippers lost both of their road games facing the Spurs.
The Clippers beat the Grizzlies on the road in their last game and on the season they are 2-0 on the road.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs rank 12th in the league in points per game and 4th in opponents’ points allowed.
In their win over the Jazz the Spurs had a decent shooting night, but they won with their defense, which held Utah to only 37.5% from the field.
Kawhi Leonard had another solid game going for 29 points on 9/18 shooting and he is leading the Spurs this season averaging nearly 26 ppg.
LeMarcus Aldridge and Patt Mills chimed in to combine for 35 points in the win over the Jazz with each shooting over 50% from the floor.
Pau Gasol and Aldrdige not only have to help the San Antonio offense, but it is key they play solid interior D and keep Jordan from killing them on the glass.
While the Spurs easily beat the Jazz they did allow Utah to shoot 42.3% from beyond the 3-point arc.
They have to play better perimeter D tonight since the Clippers have a bunch of long range gunners like Paul, J.J. Reddick, and Jamaal Crawford.
The Spurs are 1-1 at home this season.
