The Line: San Antonio Spurs -7 -- Over/Under: 222.5
The Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs meet Sunday in NBA action at the AT&T Center.
The Los Angeles Clippers could use a win here that would snap a five-game losing streak. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 114.7 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 114.6 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Tobias Harris is averaging 20.9 points and eight rebounds while Danilo Gallinari is averaging 19 points and 2.5 assists. Lou Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Montrezl Harrell is grabbing 6.9 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 38.4 percent from beyond the arc and 79.9 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 34.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.6 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Clippers have lost five of their last eight road games.
The San Antonio Spurs look for a victory after splitting their last six games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 111.8 points on 47.9 percent shooting and allowing 109.3 points on 46.1 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 21.7 points and 6.4 assists while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 20.5 points and 8.5 rebounds.

The Clippers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Spurs are 27-9 ATS in their last 36 home games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games and 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Clippers are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in San Antonio and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 5-1 in Clippers last 6 road games and 4-1 in Clippers last 5 overall.
The Los Angeles Clippers are still missing a couple of key players, and it's hurt them during this losing stretch, as the defense has fallen off a cliff and they're losing by an average of 13.6 points during their five-game losing streak. The San Antonio Spurs have been a money printing machine dating back to last season in terms of covering spreads at home, and they're winning by an average of 7.7 points at home this season. Without Lou Williams and Danilo Gallinari, the Clippers clearly struggle. I'll lay the chalk with the Spurs at home.
