ESPN Preview:
Quote:
The San Antonio Spurs will try for their first 13-game winning streak in more than three years as they look to sweep the season series from the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday at the AT&T Center.

The Spurs (45-18), who last won 13 straight from Dec. 5-28, 2003, are third in the Western Conference behind Dallas and Phoenix and in good position to keep rolling Tuesday. San Antonio has won four straight over Los Angeles, including three this season, and 12 of the last 13 meetings.

The Spurs have won eight in a row at home over the Clippers, who are clinging to the eighth and final playoff spot in the West but have lost three straight and 11 of 16.

Los Angeles has struggled offensively of late, averaging 81.0 points in the last five games -- well under its 94.6 season average. That doesn't bode well for a matchup with the Spurs, whose defense has been a major factor in their current run.


TeamRankings Update:
Third ranked Spurs are facing off against the 15th ranked Clippers and are projected to win by a margin of 9 points or more. Clippers are given just a small chance of winning at 21.1%

Sorry, forgot to post here[main forum] as well.

Clippers are sticking in thus far and Jason Hart is solid, so it isn't ugly yet. Clippers up 22-21 at the end of one, let's see if they can do anything of the sort to keep this up and pull an upset here, which would be a major victory.

Time-Out taken

8:28 left, Spurs up 30-28.

Clippers playing better then I expected, mainly Jason Hart, let's see if they can keep it up with Ewing on the floor.

4:53 left and Spurs up 38-33. Things went downhill when Hart went to the bench, no surprise as Ewing can't run the show. At least they are sticking in...for now.

Spurs up 50-40 at the half. Clippers need to stop setting for jumpers and drive in, draw some fouls and get to the line. When they get to the line, they need to make the damn FT's[Maggette is 1-4 for gods sake]. Game isn't out of reach yet, but it isn't anywhere close to it.

Time-Out taken, 5:28 to go Clippers down just 5, 62-57. Clippers sticking in, let's see if they can somehow get this game.

3:29 left in the third, time-out Clippers as Spurs back up 9, 68-59. Clippers need to get some defensive stops and hit shots on the offensive end as this game is not over yet and they can take the game and pull an upset.

72-61 Spurs at the end of three. Clippers need to STOP jacking up shots, which is killing them. Bad officiating for the last minute or so of the third.

Time-Out on the floor 8:53 left in the game and Clippers just down 5 at 74-69. Clippers are just playing agressive and great in the fourth, but can they overcome the much better team in San Antonio and win this game?

Time-Out Spurs, 6:16 left Spurs are up 81-75. Clippers just need to get a few stops and calm down and offense and they should be able to have a shot at an upset.

1:59 left, Clippers time-out. Spurs up 88-78 and the game is all but over. Nice showing by the Clippers, but the Spurs are just a much better team.

Final Score: Spurs win 93-84. Game was closer then the score shows and the Clippers put in a ton of heart to try to win. If they play like this for the rest of the road trip, they should win 4 games and end up 4-2.
