Spurs, Clippers set to face in Semi-Finals


The Los Angeles Clippers have defeated the Memphis Grizzlies in seven games to advance to the Western Conference Semi-Finals and face the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 this Tuesday in San Antonio.

The biggest spotlight will be on the point-guard matchup between Tony Parker-Chris Paul matchup as these two players finished in the top-five in NBA MVP voting with Parker finishing fifth.

Of course there are plenty of other matchups to watch for (Tim Duncan vs. Blake Griffin for example) but here is how the Spurs and Clippers fared against one another during the regular season.

As you can see, the Spurs won the regular season series (2-1) including the nail-biting game where Gary Neal hit a clutch three-point shot in OT.

What do you have to say Spurs fans? How do you see this series shaping up with the Spurs having lots of time to rest since sweeping the Jazz and the Clippers coming off a physical battle with Memphis?
