San Antonio
Los Angeles

[LOS ANGELES] — The Los Angeles Clippers played host to the San Antonio Spurs last night but couldn't manage to leave much of an impact, failing to keep up with their visiting rivals and eventually succumbing in a 97-105 defeat. The loss bumps Los Angeles's record down to 35-23 on the season, while the victory gives San Antonio a 44-13 total on the year. Disappointing from the opening tip, the Clippers did little to convince anyone that they deserved anything more than a big fat L in this one. Suffice it to say, they'll have plenty to talk about over the next few days.

On this night it was Blake Griffin leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 29 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 0 blocks and 1 steals in 38 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Still, one can't be overly enthusastic about the numbers considering that even Griffin himself would presumably trade the solid figures for a different result on the scoreboard. Needless to say, Los Angeles will take any win they can get their hands on considering where they find themselves in the conference but this just wasn't one of them.

Unable to match Griffin's numbers, Pau Gasol can rest assured that he bested his rival where it actually counts. Gasol's 17 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists led the Spurs in the winning effort.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the Clippers can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though Los Angeles wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the Charlotte Hornets. The Spurs, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the Los Angeles Lakers.
