Clippers-Spurs Preview By JEFF BARTL Posted Nov 18 2012 10:49PM The Los Angeles Clippers' history against the San Antonio Spurs entering this season wasn't exactly stellar, but Los Angeles proved in the last meeting it isn't the same team San Antonio has picked on in recent years. The Clippers look to extend their five-game winning streak that started with a dominating win over the Spurs in Monday night's rematch in Texas. San Antonio swept Los Angeles out of last season's playoffs and entered 2012-13 with a 52-6 record in the series - including the postseason - since December 1997. The Clippers, though, routed the Spurs 106-84....

Big time test going against the Spurs on the road and the trip in general the starters will probably need to do more to make up for the bench probably coming down some on the road.

Remember, Leonard is out for a little while. That means they have one less player in the rotation. Stephen Jackson is starting.

I hope we haven't gotten too spoiled with playing at home. We've been so solid at both ends of the court, I hope we can keep up the same intensity on the road.

Chris Paul and the bigs needs to be more aggressive to win this game. Then the bench they just have to keep doing their thing.

something tells me that danny green is going off this game. same goes for manu since he struggled last time against us. he's always been a clipper killer whenever he plays at home.

im thinking butler may have a big game since kawhi leonard is out. the clips just need to keep the intensity up on defense. however, we also have to hit our open shots in order to counter the reffing bias the spurs always get at home. if we hit at least 10 3's we should be able to beat the spurs handidly. i also agree that cp3, bg and Dj have to play aggressively in order to break down the spurs in a fast tempo game.

I just hope we continue to execute our game plan. I hope CP3 dominates by scoring and, more importantly, distributing. I hope we continue to see BG's and DJ's arsenal grow. I want Butler to have a big game (maybe contribute on the boards tonight). Our defense is one of the best in the league, so we cannot let up on the road in that department.

If we lose tonight, I want it to be because the Spurs were on fire and making impossible shots...not because we didn't bring it.

exactly. Losses are part of the game but when they happen you dont want these lackluster cleveland or golden state performances

It's very frustrating a close game though, the best lost games are the ones by like 6-10 when u know team played good but not their night!

It seems like every game so far has been the "true test." San Antonio will be more than ready. We gotta go in and attack at will.

The Spurs suck so there is alwaaaaays a change against them. But we typically struggle at San Antonio. We miss open shots, we turn the ball over, we take stupid shots, brick after brick and on the other end The Spurs dont miss, they get all the loose balls, all the calls....so a mixture of that will usually result in a loss. But since the Spurs suck I am going to be optimistic and say we sin

I have asked this before, but when will beating the Clippers be a true test for other teams? I think that time is already here, but when we lose, it doesn't seem to give any credibility to those who won, but instead it seems to discredit us. The media is so weird about the Clippers. When we are hot, they all want to act like they knew we were awesome before anyone else. I think if the Spurs win, that means they are still title contenders. We don't need to beat them to validate that point.

The Clipper will win tonight. Because they need to prove to rest of the league we are for real. I think we will go 3-1 only losing to the Hawks. Since the Hawks are the weakest of the teams and LA might relax on that night since they have 3 very tough opponents. I am stoked that NBA.com has ranked us number 2. That gives the Clips the motivation they need to prove they are better than the Grizzlies and are truly the best team in the NBA. It is awesome to see that the team we knocked out of....

Also, watch out for Dejuan Blair. Blake can't sleep on him.

Blair gets a lot of loose balls, and is a dark horse player, because opponents are always trying to focus on timmy d, manu, and parker.

Low center of gravity PFs give Blake issues...Hayes, Blair, Landry

Key to this game is shutting down Tony Parker. We shut him down, we win this game easily!

CP and Bledsoe bottled him up the first time around. Gotta keep him in check again.

This. Plus at least contesting their perimeter shots. Pisses me off when they're swinging the ball and our guys jog out to meet them with their hands by their sides. I'd very much like this to be the first ever game against the Spurs where I don't scream "GET A f***** HAND UP!!!" at my TV.

vinny just said that crawfords back, hollins ankle, and caron butlers shoulder are all banged up but will play. im not too woried about ryan hollins because we still have ronny and everytime he plays he provides good minutes. im not really worried about butler since he plays limited minutes to begin with due to our depth but i hope j crossover is okay!

Griffin limping up the court every time... I saw him twist his knee a couple possessions ago FML.

Butler is garbage. He's too streaky and most of the time it streaks toward the negative.

Yea Butler should be getting less minutes. Sure he gets hot sometimes but doesn't rebound or play D anymore.

It looked like Griffin hurt his leg, esp the way he was running. Looks to be moving better after timeout, but will be paying attention.

Clippers 2-11 shooting and down only 5 not too bad. I'd put Crawford and Barnes in right away.

This is the one area I still can't give Vinny a pass for. Green and Butler have to be trash for 8 minutes or w/e before you pull them out? Should of happened 3-4 minutes ago.
