Spurs-Clippers Preview By TAYLOR BECHTOLD Posted Feb 20 2013 10:10PM Tony Parker carried his hot streak into the second half and has the San Antonio Spurs playing at a high level, but that hasn't been the case when he's faced Chris Paul and the Los Angeles Clippers. Paul will try to build on his All-Star MVP performance for the Pacific Division leaders when two of the NBA's top point guards meet Thursday night in Los Angeles. Parker, the Spurs' leading scorer with 21.0 points per game, is having one of his best stretches of the season, averaging 29.0 points and 9.0 assists in his last....

I really want the W for this one. Spurs are on real winning streak and I would love the Clips to beat them again.

This is our No Excuses game, right here. All our players are back. They're rested. They're coming off a very impressive 4 game winning streak before the AS break (had a pretty good AS break too). They've beaten this team before.

The Spurs do have the best record in the NBA, but only a few games separate them from our team. And, as we know, injuries had much to do with our decline.

I suppose one could make the argument that there might be some let up because we've already beaten the Spurs twice, but I don't think that will be the case because we KNOW they have the best record and we want to catch up if we can. Plus with OKC losing, we should be smelling blood. Not to mention the fact the Grizzlies keep winning.

One could say maybe we've had too long a rest. But c'mon, these are vets. This is a huge game. It's at home. We can't let THAT be our excuse.

The Spurs do NOT want to lose a 3rd game to us so they will BRING it! Our Clippers need to play their brand of defense. Play with intensity. Force some turnovers. Run all over the Spurs. Establish BG down low. CP3 needs to be aggressive. Chauncey and Caron need to be a legitimate threat from the outside.

If they do these things, we got this. If they come out flat and lose at home, I think that will speak volumes about these two teams.

This is a big one.

That's exactly how I feel, this is a big one!!!!!!!!

We lost miserabley to the Heat which was very understandable but we are healthy now and were firing on all cylinders before the break. This is another chance to assert that we are a contender, put on our big boy pants and take care of business!!

No pressure though. lol

Thought I hear Leonard is not playing tonight because of a sore knee. If this is the case that's great for the Clippers!

i would have loved to face the spurs with all their players healthy and beat them. it would increase the confidence of the clippers about facing the spurs.

we may not get to see a great game if the trade goes down.EB and DJ would be out and KG would not be here at least until the weekend.I hope the trade does not happen.

Are we at full strength or are we going to sit somebody tonight?

I was/am really hoping to see both teams at full strength just to get an eye test of how we match up with them and see where we are in terms playing elite teams.

Tonight we show the league why we're the team to beat in the West. With CP3 playing well and a healthy lineup out there, we're unstoppable. Just one thing for tonight's game - STOP GIVING UP THE CORNER THREE! That is all.

We badly need to work on closing on the three point shooter. It has been a major weakness for this team. Cant wait for this game its going to be a great one. Hopefully we win and go up 3-0 in the series for this year. It will give the Clippers some major confidence if we have to face the spurs in the playoffs again.

Spurs have so many shooters! Danny green, Gary Neal, Stephen Jackson, Manu, Matt bonner. Need to guard the 3 in order to win.

Never double on Duncan. Jordan can guard him 1 on 1. Blake needs to punish Boris diaw.

We need to humiliate this team on national TV. Spurs fans need to feel like Grizzlies fans this year when we smoked them twice where they just submit and realize the Clippers aren't the same team and own them now. Also sick of people acting like the Clippers aren't on that level. Let's whoop their ass!

Wanted them at full strength? Why would you want the opponents' chances to win to be higher? You drunk?

CP3 needs to be aggressive and look to score. Tony Parker is dominating this game right now, which shouldn't happen when we have the advantage at the 1.

Terrible defense, stupid mistakes on both ends of the court, I can already tell this is going to be another one of those games where we try to play catch-up all night and lose.
