Los Angeles Clippers 's Latest Performance :
The Clippers are coming off a loss against a stacked Warriors team. The outcome might have been closer if they had Lou William in the rotation. The Clippers bad luck did not stop there because they lost Gallinari after the first quarter. Shai had one of his strongest performances of the entire season, perhaps his very best. He matched his career-high of 24 points and did not a shot from the free throw line. He was aggressive on mismatches, had several gorgeous passes, and played fantastic defense on Klay Thompson, largely keeping him under wraps. Tobias Harris was a beast against the Warriors he finished the game with 28 points and 9 rebounds. They have now lost five games in a row, four of those coming at home, and are now out of the playoff picture for the first time since early November. There is plenty of season left to play the Clippers are a very strong team when healthy. The Spurs will be another tough game for Clipper nation.
San Antonio Spurs's Latest Performance :
The Spurs will return home after a perfect two-game road trip. The Spurs are now the 5th seed in the Western Conference two games behind the Thunder. They are coming off a gritty road win over the Wolves. The Spurs were able to get the job done without DeMar in this game. Derrick White did well tonight filling in for DeRozan with 15 points on 8 shots, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists. Rudy Gay made 9-of-14 from the field for 22 points adding four rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block, five turnovers, and five fouls in 34 minutes. His wrist injury didn’t seem to bother him and he made a big hustle play in clutch time, diving for a ball around Dario Saric. Marco Belinelli played a season-high 34 minutes and finished the game with 19 points and five boards. LaMarcus didn’t have a great game but he did come through for the team at the end of the game hitting clutch shots. Playing against the Clippers at home the Spurs will have to be aware that they are coming off a loss against the Warriors with Cousins so I expect they should come out with something to prove.

Against The Spread Selection: San Antonio Spurs
My reason for the pick :
The Clippers will drop their sixth game in a row against the Spurs. With DeMar back in the line up the Spurs are a much better team. The Spurs are playing great basketball at the moment and it is no surprise since Coach Pop has really tightened up the screws in these last few games just before the All-Star break. For the Clippers, it is tough to play at full strength when they don’t have a healthy squad with Dalo and Lou it makes it hard the Clippers to compete against the Spurs on the road.
