The Los Angeles Clippers are merely a speed bump on the San Antonio Spurs way to the NBA Finals. At this point it just a matter of the Clippers losing with dignity. And if the Clippers are going to save face then they need to step-up because Thursday night’s game 2 was just sad. The Spurs sealed their 13th win by beating the Clippers, 105-88. Aside from having a better team the Spurs have had more resting time. They quickly killed the Utah Jazz in 4 games in Round 1 and had 8 days to prepare for the Clippers. Whereas the Clippers playing a grueling 7 games against the Memphis Grizzlies and had about 2 seconds to turn around for round 2. Not to mention Clipper Chris Paul is still fighting through injuries and barely able to score. Adding to the injury list is Blake Griffin who already had ankle problems and now has hip problems.
Paul scored 10 points for the Clippers Thursday night and Griffin managed 20 points. For the Spurs old man Tim Duncan scored 18 and Tony Parker had 22 points. Parker celebrated his 30th Birthday by beating the Clippers. If the Spurs sweep the series at least the Clippers can be proud that they made it to the 2nd Round.
