Clippers Look To Snap 16-Game Losing Streak In San Antonio Against Spurs

The Clippers have lost each of their last 16 games in San Antonio, with their last win coming on January 31, 2002.

The Los Angeles Clippers look to do something Wednesday night that they haven't done in nearly a decade as they head to Texas to battle the San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center. The Clippers have lost each of their last 16 games in San Antonio, with their last win coming on January 31, 2002.

The Clippers won on Christmas night in Oakland, a 105-86 victory over the Golden State Warriors. Chris Paul had 20 points and nine assists in his Clippers debut, and new backcourt mate Chauncey Billups scored 21 points. Fellow Clipper newcomer Caron Butler grabbed 10 rebounds to go with his 11 points.

In addition to the road losing streak to the Spurs, the Clippers had an 18-game losing streak overall to San Antonio that was snapped last season with a 90-85 win on December 1, 2010 in Los Angeles. Blake Griffin scored 31 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in the win. Griffin averaged 19.7 points and 9.7 rebounds in three games against the Spurs last season.

The Spurs beat the Memphis Grizzlies 95-82 at home on Monday in their only game this season, led by 24 points by Manu Ginobili. They are 14-1 in season openers under head coach Gregg Popovich. The Clippers are 8-63 all-time in San Antonio.

Wednesday's 5:30 p.m. PST game will be televised by Prime Ticket. For more Clippers news and information, be sure to read Clips Nation.
