The Clippers will play host to the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night at 7:30 at Staples Center (on TNT). That means another matchup between point guards Chris Paul of the Clippers and Tony Parker of the Spurs.

Paul is looking forward to that.

“It’s cool,” Paul said. “Used to it. Tony’s a great player, a good friend of mine. We’ve had some memorable games against each other.”

The Spurs (45-8) defeated the Clippers (35-18) by a 115-107 score on Dec. 18 in San Antonio. Paul scored 27 points, doled out 10 assists and made three steals. Parker had 21 points with three assists and a steal.
