The San Antonio Spurs pulled out a hard-fought win in their last game to continue their surge toward the top of the Western Conference.
They may not have as much trouble holding off an injury-plagued Los Angeles Clippers team that's in the midst of a season-high losing streak and has always struggled in San Antonio.
The Spurs go for their 15th win in 18 games Thursday night when they host the Clippers, losers of eight straight overall and 11 in a row at the AT&T Center.
Despite trailing for only one possession, San Antonio (23-11) was never able to pull away during a 91-84 win over Miami on Monday night. The Spurs built a 10-point lead in the first quarter, but had to make 10 of their 17 field-goal attempts in the fourth to hold off the Heat, who rallied several times.
"These guys have been there before," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said of the Spurs. "They're a seasoned, veteran team that's played in a lot of big games. You could tell how much poise they have out there. They're totally calm in these type of situations. They've experienced it so many different times."
