Clippers vs Spurs Free Pick May 15, 2012

May 14, 2012

The San Antonio Spurs have been waiting for over a week to face their second round opponent. Tuesday May 15 they get their chance when they host the Los Angeles Clippers in the first game of their best of seven series. The two teams are completely different from one another and this will end up being a very competitive series.

The Spurs have three veterans who will run the show for them. Tim Duncan is in his 15th season, Tony Parker in his 11th and Manu Ginobili in his 10th. All three players have played their entire NBA careers with the Spurs. The Clippers have stars Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan who came to them through the draft, but the rest of the nucleus of the team came via trades or free agent signings.

The Spurs will have a huge advantage with experience and can count on any of their veterans down the stretch of a game. The Clippers have Chris Paul and Griffin they can go to in key situations.

The Spurs will play tradition basketball on offense working the ball around and looking for the inside shot after sharpshooter Parker opens the defense with this outside shots and drives to the hoop.

The Clippers will look to run and attack and get as many shots as they can at the basket. Both teams are full of talent and the series should go to at least six if not seven games. The Spurs come in red hot as they have won 18 of their last 20 games, but have had to sit and could be out of game shape for the first game.

The current line has the Spurs as an 11-point favorite, but should come down some as game time approaches. The total is sitting at 191 ½. Smart money takes the Clippers ATS and if you are a SU bettor, take the Spurs. The total will cash out to the OVER bettors.
