Spurs’ season: San Antonio recently parted ways with LaMarcus Aldridge and as per some reports, the future of DeRozan is also in the air. DeRozan has performed admirably, becoming the primary scorer and playmaker for the squad, but their coach Popovich may like to use the young core of Lonnie Walker, Keldon Johnson, Derrick White, and DeJounte Murray to develop something special in long run.
Clippers’ season: Los Angeles has a great experience at nearly all positions, and the duo of Leonard and George has helped them land the 3rd rank in the NBA standings for the Western Conference. They have a great mix of offensive and defensive players, with players stepping off the bench. The Clippers can pose a lot of trouble in the Playoffs.

The Claw has been in a great rhythm for the Spurs and has once again proven to be a menacing presence for his opponents on both ends of the floor. The Forward is an incredible performer and there is a reason why he is among the elite players as a two-time NBA Finals MVP. He has averaged 2.6 SPG this month. He is a great choice as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA play.
Although his name is floating in the NBA trade block, he has done a great job in producing offense both as the scorer and playmaker. He has made the Spurs a formidable squad with his all-around talents, and he has averaged 23.8 PPG, 8.6 APG, and 1.4 SPG for the last 5 games.
George has had a better impact on both ends compared to last year, however, his production has receded since February. Although he is feeling the mid-season fatigue, he has still managed to be a factor every now and then scoring the ball. He is leading the Clippers in APG.
If DeRozan is on the move then we can see the ball more in the hands of Murray. Regardless of DeMar’s stay, he has been remarkable at being an all-purpose guard, whose long hands enable him to be a factor on defense and rebounding the ball. He also takes care of the ball and is a dependable player.
Keldon Johnson: PPG: 13.7 RPG: 6.4 TPG: 1.2 PFP: 32
Johnson is the third option in the starting lineup and contributes productive minutes as the SF. His role has extended in the wake of LaMarcus Aldridge’s departure.
Marcus Morris Sr.: PPG: 12.3 RPG: 3.8 PFP: 22
Morris has been an effective option for the Clippers at the SF position, bringing in experience and craftiness. He has managed to cross the double digits threshold in the last 5 games.
Jakob Poeltl: PPG: 7.1 RPG: 7.7 BPG: 1.6 PFP: 24
Poeltl has been a factor rebounding the ball and rejecting the ball in the paint. He has averaged 10.2 RPG and 1.6 BPG since the last 5 games.
Patty Mills: PPG: 13.1 APG: 2.6 PFP: 20
Lou Williams: PPG: 12.1 APG: 3.4 TPG: 1.6 PFP: 22
