2015 NBA Betting – Can Clippers Stop The Champs?

Posted by Craig Parsons on 4/16/2015 8:51:47 PM

The NBA playoffs are here, and there is no better series in the first round than the one between the San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Clippers. It’s going to be some kind of show.

NBA Western Conference Playoffs, First Round

San Antonio Spurs vs. Los Angeles Clippers

Why San Antonio Will Win

The Spurs are still the Spurs. Tony Parker isn’t as good as he was last season, but Kawhi Leonard is playing like a superstar. He’s been averaging close to 20 points, seven rebounds, and three steals per game toward the end of the season. When he’s playing defense as well as he is right now and is also taking the ball strong to the rim, the Spurs are a great team. They don’t even need Parker to put up great numbers. Kawhi Leonard can carry San Antonio now. That’s what’s different about this team.

What’s still the same about the Spurs is that the best coach in pro basketball coaches them, Gregg Popovich. Danny Green is still shooting threes and makes San Antonio very hard to defend. Tim Duncan is still playing elite defense in the low post at this stage of his career. So many of the other ingredients that have made San Antonio so good for so long are still very much in place.

Why The Los Angeles Clippers Will Win

When the Clippers take the court in this series, they will know that they’ve won 14 out of their last 15 games. The Spurs were 21-5 to close the regular season, but the Clippers were even stronger at the end of 82 games. Los Angeles also knows that Blake Griffin’s injury weirdly could benefit the team a lot more than had it not happened at all. With Griffin out, everyone else knew that more work would have to be done. All the other main Clippers played at a higher level with Griffin out. DeAndre Jordan stepped up his rebounding at both ends of the court. Chris Paul has been better this season than he was last season, and part of that is due to the fact that he’s been less injured this season. He is in position to play his best in this series, which bodes well for the Clippers. J.J. Redick has improved on the wing, and if he’s hitting shots consistently, San Antonio’s in a lot of trouble in this series. The Clippers are in a good rhythm and flow, and now that Griffin is back, he’s physically strong because he spent a whole month resting while injured. He might actually have more strength and durability in this series because he had to sit out. The Clippers have a better chance to win this series than many think they do. The Spurs also aren’t getting the absolute most out of Tony Parker, and if that doesn’t change, San Antonio’s probably going to get knocked out.

Who Will Win

The Spurs do not have homecourt advantage, but they still know how to win this time of year. Los Angeles will need its role players to play well, but San Antonio is the team with the better glue guys, and should win this series.
