It is going to be awfully difficult to want to back the Clippers in this game, but we think that this is the clash in which they are going to put up a fight. The Spurs are a great team, but no one at this point is 11 points better than anyone else is. San Antonio probably isn’t going to shoot over 52 percent from three point land, and Chris Paul isn’t likely to shoot just 3-of-13 from the floor and score just six points again either. We’re not saying that the Clips are going to win this game, because we certainly don’t believe that. However, after doing a lot of resting of the top players late on two nights ago, the opportunity is going to be there for CP3 and Blake Griffin to at least keep this one remotely close to give the team some sort of confidence going back to Staples Center over the weekend.
