QuickCap: Spurs beat the Clippers, 104-102

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

On a hard-fought game between two of the West powers, the Spurs got past the Clippers in dramatic fashion after a vintage Tim Duncan game-winner.

But the real story, unfortunately, is that Manu Ginobili had to leave the court in the first quarter due to a tight hamstring. That’s all the info there is right now but we’ll keep you posted as the story develops.

As for the game, offense was king in the first half with neither team able to get stops consistently. The third quarter saw the Spurs tighten things up and only allow 17 points to the Clippers. Parker and Duncan were the Spurs offense for most of the game but they couldn’t match the balanced scoring of a deeper Clippers team on the fourth quarter. The visitors were up one after Chris Paul hit a free throw off a Tony Parker foul. But the Spurs defended the following play. After the inbound, Tim Duncan caught the ball at the elbow and hit a runner while being fouled. Duncan hit the free throw and the Clippers couldn’t score on the last possession of the game. Since OKC lost, the Spurs are now 2.5 games up at the top of the West.

Matthew Tynan will have the recap up in a little bit.
