The NBA season gets rolling once again following the All Star break and the Spurs and Clippers headline a triple header.
San Antonio is in the midst of another winning streak as they’ve rattled off 6 straight wins while the Clippers look to get back into the win column after dropping their final game prior to the break.
The Spurs and winning streaks have become quite the norm this season.
San Antonio has build another winning streak, this time of 6 games, as they held off Orlando on the road prior to the break.
All Star Kawhi Leonard capped off a solid first half of the season as he hit a game winning shot with 0.9 seconds for points 28 and 29 of the night.
Back on 12/18 the Spurs outscored the Clippers by 11 points in the 4th quarter to secure a 115-107 victory. All 5 starters scored in double figures with LaMarcus Aldridge leading the way with 29 points.
In the first half of the NBA season, the Spurs finished 17-8 on the road while going 15-10 ATS. Their defense was stellar as they allowed just 93 points per road contest.
The Clippers have been at the center of many trade rumors with the break hitting.
The most popular name being thrown around has been F Blake Griffin.
The star F was injured and then suspended for punching a team manager and the Clippers have actually looked like a better team at times without him in the lineup.
While nothing is set and stone with the Clippers moving Griffin, they must focus on the Spurs here Thursday night as they try to avoid losing back to back games.
The Clippers fell by 5 in Boston in overtime as their defense completely collapsed. The defense has been really hit or miss this season as Los Angeles allows just over 100 points per game.
The Staples Center was nice to Los Angeles in the first half as they finished with a 17-8 record.
However, they beat teams by just an average of roughly 6 points, leaving them to finish just 11-13-1 ATS in those 25 games.
