Both players are having incredible seasons with Paul averaging 16.6ppg and 9.6rpg while Parker is having an impressive MVP like season with 21ppg and 7.7apg (career highs). These teams have met two times already this season with the Clippers getting wins over San Antonio to create a 2-0 regular season record against the Spurs. If the Spurs want to strike some doubt in the Clippers if they were to meet in the playoffs, S.A. must get a win today to try to have a chance of evening out the series by the end of the year. What Parker must do on offense: With Paul on the court, Parker shot 50% (4-8) in the painted area while only shooting 25% (2-8) from mid range. Parker must shoot better from mid range to open up the paint for drives. If Parker can...
