INJURY TO WATCH
San Antonio small forward Kawhi Leonard (quadricep) is out indefinitely. For the Clippers, point guard Jawun Evans (abdominal) is questionable. Point guards Milos Teodosic (heel) and Patrick Beverley (knee) are out for the season. Shooting guard Avery Bradley (hernia) is out until early May.
Los Angeles is two games back in the loss column with five games to play in the battle for the eighth seed in the Western Conference. Not only do the Pelicans currenlty hold the eighth seed, but the Clippers must jump the Nuggets in front of them too. Needless to say, tonight's game is a must-win. This isn't a meaningless game for the Spurs either as they barely have a hold on the fourth seed, so look for a strong effort from both teams. San Antonio has won both meetings this season and are winners of two in a row, while LA has lost two in a row and appear to be fading. Take the visitors in this spot.
