NBA FREE PICK: Take Los Angeles. According to latest NBA trends, Spurs are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest, 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game and are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Pacific. L.A. Clippers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games, 9-3 ATS in their last 12 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game, 21-7 ATS in their last 28 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game, 8-3 ATS in their last 11 vs. NBA Southwest and are 17-7 ATS in their last 24 games following a SU win of more than 10 points. 

The Spurs (43-12 SU, 30-23-2 ATS, 25-28-2 O/U) are coming off a 108-102 road win over Sacramento on Tuesday, though they did not cover the 9. The Clippers (39-17 SU, 31-25 ATS, 30-26 O/U) have not played since the All-Star break but their last game a week from tonight was impressive. They crushed the Lakers, 125-101, giving 4 points. With Oklahoma City losing last night, the Spurs are now 3.5 games ahead of the Thunder and 4.5 games up on the Clippers. Chris Paul, who was MVP of the All-Star game, would like to help the Clippers move closer. They have won four straight games and have a full week of rest after beating the Lakers like a drum last Thursday by 24. Since Paul has returned to health, the Clippers have beaten teams by an average of 16.3 points during the last four games. The Clippers have won both games this season, including one on Nov. 7, 106-84, handing the Spurs their worst loss of the season. Both teams have great depth though Eric Bledsoe, Lamar Odom, Matt Barnes and Jamal Crawford could start for most teams. The Paul and Tony Parker matchup should be thrilling, though Parker has been held to a total of 15 points in the Spurs' losses to the Clippers.
