Los Angeles Clippers vs San Antonio Spurs
NBA Regular Season
SAS VS LAC MATCH PREVIEW:
Los Angeles Clippers host San Antonio Spurs in NBA action on Wednesday (IST) at Staples Center, in Downtown Los Angeles.
Clippers (41-36) slipped down to 10th in Eastern Conference after losing their last two games in NBA. Their misery was compounded after Denver Nuggets won their last two and moved above them to 9th and just one game worse off than New Orleans Pelicans who occupy the last NBA playoff spot in the Western Conference.
However, not all is doom and gloom for Clippers as they still have a chance of making into the all-important playoffs, and that is because Pelicans lost their last four games, which means Anthony Davis' team is still not out of the sight of Nuggets and Clippers.
Having said that, there are just five games remaining in the regular season and considering Clippers have two games to level Pelicans' record for this season, they may be running out of time to finish in the top-8 in 2017-18.
San Antonio Spurs (45-32), on the other hand, are 4th in the Western Conference and only need two wins to confirm their entry in this season's playoff. They have the form and the players on their roaster to achieve that target. But they will be traveling in this match and their away form is negative this season. Spurs have played 38 away games in the regular season so far and have tasted victories in only 14 games. That's why Clippers should be confident to force this pathetic record of Spurs' to one more game.
Match Timing: Tomorrow, April 04, 08:00 AM IST

After winning four times in the last four games, Clippers were beaming with confidence ahead of their two tough games against Portland Trail Blazers, and Indiana Pacers and quite surprisingly they ended up losing both those games.

Clippers are averaging 109.2 points, and are shooting at 35.8 percent from beyond the arc this season. They are making rebounds and assists count at 43.7, and 22.2 on average in the 2017-18 season.
San Antonio Spurs-
Gregg Popovich has marshaled his troops quite well in the absence of his biggest stalwart Kawhi Leonard who has played just nine games in the regular season.
LaMarcus Aldridge has made a name for himself this season and without a shadow of any doubt is the best player in Spurs' ranks.
Also, the away will be full of confidence after snapping Houston Rockets' 11 game winning streak in their last game. Aldridge was more effective in that match in terms of the overall contribution that James Harden who once again topped the scoring charts.
