San Antonio Spurs
Los Angeles Clippers
San Diego State Aztecs
The LA Clippers stayed with the San Antonio Spurs for much of last night's Game 1, and even had a lead mid-way through the second quarter, but the Spurs pulled away in the third quarter and never looked back, winning with a convincing score of 108-92. Here are a few notable happenings from the game that some of you early to bed folks may have missed.
The point guards that were supposed to be headlining this series each had forgettable nights. Tony Parker probably had a slightly better night, if you can even say that about someone who shot 1-for-9 from the floor, but when a guy gets a win after holding Chris Paul to six points and 10 assists, you can't really say he was bad that night. The Spurs were trying to double Paul as early as his first dribble, preventing him from utilizing the pick-and-roll like he did when he beat Memphis, and clearly it worked. San Antonio is going to make LA's wings beat them, and in their defense, Caron Butler, Nick Young and ...

SAN ANTONIO After dissecting another long evening here, Clippers guard Chris Paul turned to his 2-year-old son, Chris, and asked him about his trip to Sea World earlier in the day. Little Chris described with great wonder the highlight: a whale with a big tail.
On that account, father and son had plenty in common.
Paul will return home much like Captain Ahab, playing like he...
How did the Clippers celebrate winning game 7 against the Memphis Grizzlies on their home court? With a discarded Chris Paul-pacifier sign some fan threw on the court! The Clippers bench was incredible, so good in fact that down the stretch, Blake Griffin was on the bench because Kenyon Martin was so locked in. Of [...]

If the Los Angeles Clippers are trying to take Tony Parker out in this series, they're not doing a very good job. The San Antonio Spurs' point guard dished out 11 assists in Game 1 and scored 22 in Game 2.

Most people seem to believe the Spurs have a big advantage in their Western Conference semifinal matchup with the Clippers. After all, they're the well-rested team with championship experience. The Clips are supposedly too young and too banged up to win this series.
I think the opposite may be true.
To me, the tough, physical, grueling seven-game series that Los Angeles just...
If there’s one thing the Los Angeles Clippers can be happy about from their blowout loss to the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1, it was the inspired performance from Eric Bledsoe.
Bledsoe shot 10-16 from the floor for 23 points and seemed like he could score at will against the Spurs’ defense. He also added 4 offensive rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals and a block. He filled up...
The Los Angeles Clippers were finally able to finish off the Memphis Grizzlies in seven games. Their reward for coming out of that slug fest? They get to play the well-rested San Antonio Spurs. The fact that it took the Clippers three chances to finish off the Grizzlies is going to be huge for the Spurs. Games 5-7 were grueling, not to mention the fact that Chris Paul and Blake...
Air Diaw10) From watching these first two games, you'd never guess that Chris Paul is actually any good9) When Tim Duncan looks quick and comfortable, the Spurs' opponents really don't have a chance in hell8) If Blake Griffin is going to continue to get one more rebound than a dead man, we're going to really have to start calling him a power forward7) ESPN cared so...
