The Los Angeles Clippers will take on the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals series.
The Los Angeles Clippers survived a grueling, physical seven-game series where they edged out the Memphis Grizzlies on the road in Game 7. They had to rely on their dominance of the fourth quarter to win most of the games in this series.
They will need similar clutch play if they plan on taking four games against the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs swept the Utah Jazz in rather impressive fashion, and have had over a week off to get prepped for this contest.
Game 1 of the Clippers vs. Spurs series takes place today at the AT&T Center on Tuesday night. The game takes place at 6:30 PM PT and 9:30 PM ET, and will take place on TNT. You should also be able to listen to it on your local ESPN Radio affiliate.
