This Saturday will see two of the top teams in the Western Conference face off as the Los Angeles Clippers travel to the Lone Star State to take on the San Antonio Spurs. The Clippers have taken two of the previous three meetings this year, but the Spurs won the last one 105-97 on February 24th.
The Clippers have been on a roll lately, winning four straight games. That includes a 112-101 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday. L.A. is currently in 5th place in the conference but only a half game behind the 4th place Utah Jazz.
The Spurs will have a tough task ahead of them, and this will be the second night of a back-to-back for them.
They will face the Mavericks in Dallas on Friday before hosting the Clippers in this one. San Antonio has already locked in the number two spot in the West.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers have looked like a team on a mission over the last two weeks. They have won four games in a row and five of their last six. However, they have not exactly faced top-tier talent during much of that stress, and their last three wins have come over Suns, Lakers and Mavericks.
This is an important game for the Clippers, as they are attempting to grab the 4th spot (and home-court in the first round) from the Utah Jazz. They currently trail them by only a half game.
The Clippers have the 6th best scoring offense the league, averaging 108.5 points per game. They are tied for 22nd in rebounding with 42.9 and rank 15th in assists with 22.4 per contest. Defensively, L.A. allows 104.8 points per game which ranks 14th in the NBA.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs have taken a lot of the heat during the current “resting players” conversation that is happening in the league.
They are known to do so at this point in the year, but they have already notified us that they will play their starters in this nationally televised contest with the Clippers.
San Antonio will play Dallas on the road the night before this game, and they do plan to rest players in that matchup. That should negate much of the fatigue problem that usually arises with back-to-backs.
The Spurs score an average of 105.8 points per game which ranks 13th in the league. They rank 12th in rebounding with 43.7 and 6th in assists with 24 per contest. San Antonio has been outstanding defensively, allowing only 98.2 points per game which ranks 2nd in the league.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction:
Overall, the Spurs are clearly the better team, but there is a lot more to this game than meets the eye. San Antonio has locked in the 2nd place spot and is playing for nothing. The Clippers are playing for seeding and home-court advantage, and they desperately need this win.
The Spurs are coming off of a back-to-back, but fatigue is negated by the fact that they are resting their starters in the first game. Although they have already announced that their starters will play, that is no guarantee that they will play the entire game.
