The San Antonio Spurs pay a visit to the Los Angeles Clippers at the Staples Center on Tuesday night.
Los Angeles Clippers
After starting the season slowly, the Clippers went on a terrific seven-game winning streak that was ended by the Chicago Bulls on Sunday. On Sunday, LA Clippers trailed by 13 points after one quarter and turned the ball over 20 times during a 100-90 home loss versus Chicago. The Clippers shot a miserly 35 percent from the field and 11 of 34 from the 3-point line. Nevertheless, the Clippers have been absolutely stunning this campaign, and seem to have things sorted despite the absence of Kawhi Leonard.
San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs are 4-9 on the season, and sit 13th in the Western Conference. The Spurs have dropped consecutive games and rank second in the league in assists (28.5 apg). On Sunday, San Antonio assisted on 28 of their 40 made field goals and never led during the second half of a 114-106 road loss against Los Angeles Lakers. The Spurs shot 44 percent from the field and 16 of 36 from the 3-point line.
The LA Clippers have proven to be one of the most resilient teams in the NBA. Their ability to come out of tough situations and pull out wins make them one of the toughest teams to play in the league. Considering that and their imperious recent form, the LA Clippers are expected to get the win against the Spurs on Tuesday.
