The Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers square up for the third time this season on Sunday, with San Antonio leading the regular season series 3-1. In previous wins, LaMarcus Aldridge has been the catalyst for the Spurs, scoring a combined 65 points in San Antonio’s December victories versus the Clippers. After signature wins against the Celtics and Raptors, the Spurs surged to their longest winning streak of the season and appear to have turned the corner on the defensive end of the hardwood. Bryn Forbes and Derrick White continue to thrive in Dejounte Murray’s absence, and both Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan are capable of dropping 30 points on an opponent any given night. With the halfway point of the season in the rearview mirror, quality wins against Western Conference opponents are critical for a post-season push.
