Tuesday, January 5th finds the San Antonio Spurs travel to face the Los Angeles Clippers in the team’s first meeting of the 2020-21 campaign.
The Spurs hold the all-time record with 129 wins in 174 meetings. Last season, the teams played four times with the Clippers winning three of the four contests.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs started out the 2020-21 campaign looking like Gregg Popovich had figured out how to use their youthful stars with the existing veteran All-Stars posting two early victories.
Since then, San Antonio has lost four straight (albeit two games versus the Lakers) and got spanked by the Jazz 130-109.

In the loss, youngster Keldon Johnson led the way again with 22 points and seven rebounds after posting a double-double of 26 points and 10 rebounds versus the Lakers.
If Johnson keeps up his early-season success he sure looks like the next great Spurs star. Veteran DeMar DeRozan scored 19 while Jakob Poeltl and Lonnie Walker each contributed 11 points while Rudy Gay chipped in with 10 points as the other double-figure contributors.
LaMarcus Aldridge has missed the last three games due to left knee soreness. Derrick White missed the last game with a sprained toe. Both are considered questionable for Tuesday. Quinndary Weatherspoon (knee) is out indefinitely.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers bounced back from the disaster game versus the Mavericks with three wins in the next four games losing only to the Jazz despite a late comeback to make the match close.
Wins against the Wolves, Blazers, and Suns offered hints this Clippers squad could be even better than last season and that’s without Marcus Morris lacing them up this season yet.
Of these wins, the victory versus the Suns was the most impressive given how the Suns have started the 2020-21 campaign.
Paul George bursted out with a 39 point effort to lead his squad while Kawhi Leonard posted 15 points with three assists and six rebounds. Nicolas Batum and Luke Kennard each added 14 points as the other double-figure contributors.
Marcus Morris Sr. has practiced with the team but hasn’t appeared in any games yet. Jay Scrubb is recovering from foot surgery Neither will play in the game Tuesday and both are out indefinitely.

Free San Antonio Spurs vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
The addition of Serge Ibaka and Nicolas Batum is an upgrade in the starting rotation and one of the stingiest defenses.
However, through the early stages of the season, the reserve unit is still searching to replicate their consistent offense from last season.
Conversely, the Spurs need to get back on track in the third week and need LaMarcus Aldridge to get healthy.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Spurs +8
The Spurs have their work cut out for them particularly if Aldridge can’t play and will need to increase their pace if they want to keep the Clippers off balance. Regardless, if the teams play to their potential this one goes to the Clippers.
