The Line: Los Angeles Clippers -2 -- Over/Under: 204 See the Latest Odds
The San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers play game seven of their playoff series Saturday night.
The San Antonio Spurs look to advance and continue defending their championship crown. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 21.5 points and seven rebounds while Tim Duncan is averaging 16.3 points and 11.2 rebounds. Boris Diaw is dishing 3.7 assists and Patty Mills is grabbing three rebounds. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 36.1 percent from deep in this series, but they’re getting very little from Danny Green and Manu Ginobili. If the Spurs are going to advance, they need a total team effort on both sides of the ball. The Spurs have won two of their three road games in this series. The Spurs have have won six of their last eight road games.

The Los Angeles Clippers look to advance to play the Rockets on Monday. Blake Griffin is averaging 24.2 points and 13.2 rebounds while Chris Paul is averaging 22 points and 8.2 assists. J.J. Redick is dishing one assist and DeAndre Jordan is grabbing 13.2 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 45.7 percent from the field in this series but getting very little from their bench. A breakout performance from Jamal Crawford or Matt Barnes would get the job done for Los Angeles. The Clippers have won seven of their last 10 games on their home court. Glen Davis is questionable with an ankle injury.
The Spurs are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games and 15-7 ATS in their last 22 games overall. The Clippers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games. The Spurs are 15-7 ATS in the last 22 meetings in Los Angeles.
The home team wins game sevens nearly 80 percent of the time. The Clippers have blown two of their three home games in this series. I like the Clippers to actually play 48 minutes and get the job done.
