The San Antonio Spurs will meet up with the LA Clippers tonight at the AT&T Center for a rematch of two of the premier teams in the Western Conference.
The Clippers are riding a five-game winning streak that began with the 106-84 victory over the Spurs at the Staples Center. The basis of their victories is their defense which is now holding teams to a stingy 86 PPG.
“The reason we’re having fun right now is because we are defending,” said PG Chris Paul, who is sixth in the NBA in steals. “It’s amazing because our season is pretty much predicated on defense because we have the offensive firepower.
The Spurs, winners of four of their last five games, realize that this game is a match up of two of the best teams in the Western Conference and that defense is what will win the game for one of these teams.
“I know that they played with a lot of energy,” Head Coach Gregg Popovich said of the Clippers’ game. “We didn’t guard them very well. They pretty much scored at will.”
