Los Angeles
San Antonio

[SAN ANTONIO] — The San Antonio Spurs played host to the Los Angeles Clippers 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 87-98 defeat. The loss bumps San Antonio's record down to 61-19 on the season, while the victory gives Los Angeles a 49-31 total on the year. Disappointing from the opening tip, the Spurs 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 Chris Paul leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 19 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists, 1 blocks and 3 steals in 30 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Most importantly, the Clippers managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Paul keeps producing at this rate and Los Angeles keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

Though San Antonio didn't end up getting it done when it mattered most, DeAndre Jordan did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 17 points, 17 rebounds and 2 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

At the end of the day, the homeside was beaten down in a performance that they stood little chance of winning. If there's one thing any coach will offer a team coming off of a loss like this one it's that success hinges on a better defensive output. Not only did the Clips take advantage of San Antonio, they managed to put forth an offensive outburst far in excess of their season average. San Antonio knows this - as would any other NBA squad in their position, so don't be surprised if the Spurs end up running plenty of laps after this one.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers. The Clippers, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the Houston Rockets.
