Spurs Getting Ready for Postseason

The San Antonio Spurs are looking to get themselves all ready for the postseason. With the win on Friday over the Mavericks, the Spurs bounced back from their loss to the Lakers. The Spurs are 13th in offense but have the second best defensive average in the league only behind Utah.

The Spurs are led by Kawhi Leonard. The small forward is scoring 25.7 points per game for San Antonio. The Spurs are not going to match their win total from a season ago, where they won 67, but it will be the third season in four years where they finished with 60+ wins.

Clippers Seeking to Stay Hot

The Los Angeles Clippers are seeking their fifth straight win. The Clippers have wins over the Wizards, Suns, Lakers and Mavericks. In those four games, the Clippers are scoring more than nearly 120 points per game. On the season, Los Angeles is scoring 108.5 points per game.

Blake Griffin and Chris Paul are the top two scoring teams for the Clippers. Griffin leads the team with 21.8 points per game, while Chris Paul is dishing out just shy of 10 assists per game. Los Angeles needs two more wins for their sixth straight season of winning 50+ in the regular season.

Spurs Win at Home

The San Antonio Spurs are just a team that can win about anywhere, at anytime. The Spurs are going to score points in this game, against a Clippers team that has struggled to defend teams at the time. San Antonio will likely play most of their top players, which leads to a win in this game.

The Clippers may have a chance to get past the first round of the postseason, but after that, they will get a matchup against the Golden State Warriors. That could be some problems for the Clippers. In this game, the San Antonio Spurs -3.5 is the bet to make over the Los Angeles Clippers.
