Clippers vs. Spurs preview: Los Angeles faces San Antonio in playoff rematch

The Los Angeles Clippers look to beat the San Antonio Spurs as they meet for the first time since getting swept out of the playoffs.


The Los Angeles Clippers face the San Antonio Spurs this weekend as the team tries to stay ahead of .500. The Clippers started out the season by beating the Memphis Grizzlies and the Los Angeles Lakers, but dropped their next two games to the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Clippers will be trying to beat the Spurs after losing four straight to them in their Western Conference Playoff series.

The Spurs have rolled through the first four games on their schedule and currently boast the league's best record. They were the first team to win four games this season. San Antonio edged out the Thunder on a game-winning buzzer beater by Tony Parker, and have also beaten the Jazz, Hornets and the Pacers, routing Indiana in their latest win. Can the Clippers hand the Spurs their first loss of the season?

The Clippers host the Spurs at home, with tip-off sometime after 7:30 p.m. PT.
