The NBA schedule on Tuesday night features plenty of exciting games as the second-half of the season gets underway following the All-Star break. One of the more exciting games is the final contest of the night when the Clippers host the Spurs at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. These two teams are separated by just one game in the standings, so tonight should be a thrilling contest as we back the visiting Spurs.
Spurs looking for another win over Clippers
When these two teams last met in January, the Spurs throttled the Clippers in San Antonio by a score of 116-92. It was the first game of a six-game winning streak for the Spurs, but they then went on to play to a 7-7 record. Now, the Spurs will look to begin a lengthy winning streak with another win over the Clippers, this time on the road. San Antonio has a 20-7 road mark, one of the best in the league, so they should be tough for the Clippers to handle tonight.
Clippers do not want to open second-half with a loss
Los Angeles will do everything possible to avoid a loss in their first game out of the All-Star break. It will be a tough one though as they host the Spurs. With a 23-4 home record, the Clippers are very difficult to beat at the Staples Center. We find it hard to believe that this game will not come down to the wire, maybe even head to overtime, but Los Angeles will need all hands on deck to win this game.
We find the betting odds for tonight’s NBA contest at BetOnline.ag, where the Clippers are 4.5-point favorites in front of the home crowd. We have decided that despite the Spurs being underdogs, we will back them with the OVER 211 total points scored tonight at -110 as they turn away the Clippers again.
