In their last game the Spurs took down the Rockets in a rare loss for Houston who had lost just once in their previous 29 games. The Clippers lost to the Pacers in their last outing on Sunday.
Last season, the Clippers won three of four contests, but the Spurs have taken both matches this season. The Spurs hold the all-time record having bested the Clippers in 126 of their 165 matches.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs pulled off the unthinkable this past weekend by not only beating the Rockets, but holding them to 83 points. Perhaps Houston wasn’t as invested given they’ve secured the top seed and home court throughout the playoffs, however it seemed much more like the Spurs look down defense was the reason.
Dejounte Murray remains the starting point guard and is demonstrating signs of growth each time he takes to the court. He was one of five Spurs who scored in double digits Sunday. Joining Murray (13) in this effort were LaMarcus Aldridge (23), Rudy Gay (21), Patty Mills (14) and Danny Green (12).
While the Spurs sit in fourth with a homecourt seed the great Kawhi Leonard mystery continues. Leonard returned to New York to reassert his rehab back from quadriceps tendinopathy, but his return this season remains questionable. How San Antonio fare in the postseason may be tied to this decision.
With the loss to the Pacers Sunday the Clippers shot of making the postseason seems all but technically confirmed. With just five games remaining (including this contest) LA sit in tenth, two games back of the eighth seed.
In the loss to Indy four Clippers produced double digit efforts with Tobias Harris (21) leading the way. Joining him were Lou Williams (20), Montrezl Harrell (19) and Austin Rivers (18).
With the probability of not making the postseason Doc Rivers will likely shut down a few players in these last five games. Jawun Evans (lower abdomen) who missed the Pacers game will likely be out for the Spurs match.
Milos Teodosic (plantar fascia tear), Avery Bradley (adductor and rectus abdominis muscles) and Patrick Beverley (meniscus microfracture) are all expected to miss the remaining games this season.
