Talking Spurs-Clippers Preview-3/2/09

Spurs-Clippers Preview

The San Antonio Spurs haven't lost three games in a row since the first week of the season. Facing the Los Angeles Clippers might prevent it from happening again.

With Tim Duncan back on the court, the Spurs look for their 11th straight victory over the lowly Clippers on Monday night at Staples Center.

After missing the previous three games with a quad injury, Duncan wasn't much of a factor in San Antonio's 102-84 loss at Portland on Sunday. The All-Star finished with 14 points and sat the entire fourth quarter.

"I hate to walk back into a situation like this and not play well and get blown out," said Duncan, averaging 20.5 points and 10.6 rebounds.

Looking to avoid their first three-game skid since opening 2008-09 with three straight losses, the Spurs (39-19) might be able to limit Duncan's minutes again, but for a better reason.

Los Angeles (15-45) has not beaten San Antonio since a 98-85 home win on March 7, 2006. The Spurs, who have won 10 straight and 18 of the last 19 games in the series, will try for their sixth straight road victory against the Clippers.

San Antonio has held Los Angeles to an average of 83.5 points in the last 10 meetings.

Duncan had 20 points and 15 rebounds in San Antonio's 86-83 win at Los Angeles on Nov. 17. He had eight points with nine assists in the Spurs' 106-84 home win over the Clippers on Jan. 8 - their most recent matchup.

While the Spurs don't want to push Duncan, they could use him at his best, especially with star reserve Manu Ginobili expected to miss at least another week with an ankle injury.

i had a chance to go to this game, and it seems like the entire team except for mike taylor has given up even trying to play this season. Taylor is quick as hell but he didnt seem like he was able to finish at the rim
