San Antonio Spurs vs Los Angeles Clippers (By: Khum)
San Antonio Spurs - Los Angeles Clippers
These two teams are heading in opposite directions, as San Antonio started the season in losing fashion, recording historical lows, and now they climbed till the 6th spot in the Western Conference.
On the other hand the Clippers were at some point the surprising leaders in the West, but now they slided till the 8th spot and they come in Texas on a 5 games losing streak.
The Spurs played their last game in Minnesota, where they snapped the win. the 520th road win for coach Popovich, an NBA record that he is now sharing with Pat Riley. Coach Pop sidelined DeRozan for that game in order for his body to rest and some minor injury to be taken care. He is listed as probable for the tonight game.
The Clippers hosted the seasonal debut for Demarcus Cousins when they lost to Golden State two days ago. They started then without their bench leader and 3rd scorer, reigning 6th Man of the Year and once again candidate for that award, Lou Williams. Coach Rivers said after the game he's expecting for Williams to miss another couple of games.
in the 1st half of that match their second scorer, Danilo Gallinari went out with injury and he's listed as doubtful for tonight.
Spurs are 16-6 ATS in their last 22 games overall, 27-9 ATS in their last 36 home games, 10-6 ATS this season as home favourite and 3-0 ATS against the Clippers this season.
The Clips are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games after an ATS loss, 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games after a double-digit loss at home, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in the previous game and, as mentioned, 0-3 ATS against the Spurs this season.
With all this track and concerning the Los Angeles team is short-handed by the injuries of the 2 of their 3 main scorers I think it's common sense to expect a double digits win for San Antonio here.
Let's go green!
