Meanwhile, the chase resumes. The Clippers (39-17) likely can’t catch San Antonio (43-12) for the best record in the Western Conference, but they can turn some heads tonight at Staples Center by beating the Spurs.
Both teams have won four games in a row, but the Clippers have another concern: Memphis is only a game behind the Clippers in the loss column. Currently third in the West, the Clippers would probably like to avoid a second-round matchup with San Antonio that a fourth-place finish could produce.
