There's no way I can give you an objective response to that one. I'm sure Michael Erler will bring you that in the recap coming soon.
Chris Paul hit just 7 of his 21 attempts but Blake Griffin was good again with 26 points on 21 shots to go along with his 12 boards, six assists and FOUR blocks.
The Spurs going just 12-of-21 from the free-throw line proved to be a huge deal in this close game. Kawhi Leonaard had a poor shooting night from the field (3-of-15) and failed to pick up a steal or block. His minus-19 was a game low.
Tim Duncan was the only starter to not finish with a negative plus/minus (0.) Danny Green continued his poor shooting and the Clippers picked up a hell of a win in San Antonio. On to the next one. The good news for Spurs fans is that SA has the experience card. We'll see if that comes into play on Saturday.
The Spurs go on the road to try to pick up the deciding game on Saturday.
