Going into San Antonio and winning for the visitors just isn’t happening this season.
The Spurs look to make it 15 straight home wins to start the season when they welcome in the Clippers here on Friday night.
Los Angeles proves to be a solid test for the Spurs as they have caught fire themselves after going through a very sluggish patch.
The Clippers have everyone healthy and have caught extreme fire here, winning 9 of their last 11.
They come in after defeating the Bucks at home 103-90 as Chris Paul is just tearing it up right now. Paul went for 21 points and added 8 assists in the victory.
Along with Paul, J.J. Redick continues to be a solid producer for the Clippers. Redick has accumulated 11 3-pointers and averaged 21.3 points in his past 3 games. This comes after he missed some time with an injury, but looks to be in full swing right now.
The Clippers take to the road where they’ve been pretty average. Los Angeles is 6-5 SU and 4-5-2 ATS in those 11 contests.
In San Antonio, the Clippers are just 10-67 in the regular season. However, they did go in there and grab two post season wins last year while eliminating the Spurs in the first round.
Whether it be the fans or the Spurs just simply like staying at home, San Antonio has looked unbeatable at home this season.
San Antonio is 14-0 SU and have gone 10-4 ATS in those 14 games. While they have plenty of weapons offensively, they’re winning games thanks to their defensive effort.
Overall, they’re allowing just 88.2 points on the season. Somehow, that number gets even better at home. The Spurs are allowing a mere 86.1 points against at home.
Over the last 4 games, San Antonio has just simply dominated as they are winning games by an average of 25.8 points. Kawhi Leonard has been a giant reason for that as he’s averaged 23.7 points during this span and comes in off a 27 point performance.
C Tim Duncan was rested in the win over Washington and is going to be in the lineup here on Friday.
