The Spurs vs. Clippers live stream and televised Game 5 arrives to cap off a doubleheader on Tuesday night in what has been one of the more interesting first round matchups so far. San Antonio looked like they were on the verge of pulling off the upset, until Chris Paul and Clippers were able to seize Game 4 on the road. They’ll now tangle again in Los Angeles with the Staples Center hosting the latest 2015 NBA Playoffs game. Live stream online and TV coverage comes via TNT for fans to enjoy.
According to CBS Sports in their April 28 game preview, San Antonio is at its best in Game 5 situations of the playoffs with a record of 23-8 overall and 15-1 in those games during their five title seasons. Los Angeles is attempting to salvage their dignity as they were quickly considered a first round out by my fans and analysts. On Sunday, they made the first step towards shaking off their detractors with a 114-105 win in San Antonio. Guard Chris Paul erupted for 34 points and seven assists, with Blake Griffin adding 20 points, seven assists and nine rebounds.
Also scoring in double figures was J.J. Reddick who had 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting. Austin Rivers and Jamal Crawford also brought scoring from the bench with 16 and 15 points, respectively. As a team, the Clippers shot 53.6% and managed to hold off a fierce Spurs team that saw Duncan score 22 points to go with 14 boards and Kawhi Leonard record 26 points, five assists and seven rebounds. Now the Spurs have the task of trying to bounce back from a loss by snatching another road win, similar to the 111-107 overtime win in Game 2.
Odds makers have the home team Clippers as 2-1/2 point favorites tonight, as the numbers have been close in all of the games so far. The over/under is set at 206 at several sports books. Important stats heading into the game include the Clippers going 16-3 straight up in their last 19 games, although they are also just 7-14 against the spread at home in their last 21 games. The over has hit in nine of the last 13 games these two have played against one another.
