The others adding to the score wee T. Duncan with 14 rebounds and 22 points and K. Leonard with 28 points in Game 4. But then you had some bad news, and that is that their offense was not enough for San Antonio to win at home, even with them previously winning 17 of their last 19 home games. Two of their starting 5 were not factors in the game as T. Splitter in his 18 minutes of game time was scoreless and D. Green went 0-6 in the 4 minutes that he played. The other problem was with their bench who in previous games was 1 of their big assistants did not perform well in Game 4. Then the Spurs only won 11 of their last 20 road games and are 9 and 11 ATS.
Now if you are Clippers of Los Angeles fans we have to give credit where credit is due and applaud their payers B. Griffin and C. Paul for bring a important win to the Clippers at 114 over the Spurs 105 in that Game 4. Paul scored 34 points while playing another all-around game, with 7 assists, 19 rebounds and scoring 20 points. In the 4 games his all-around average is 7 assists, 13 rebounds and 22 points, incredible overall performance.
But the Clippers still needed the contributions from their two star guards Rivers and Redick to win that Game 4. Redick had been scoring 11 points a game and in that Game 4 he un-slumped and score 17 points making 6 of his 12 shots from the field. Rivers coming off the bench made 7 of his 5 shots from the field making 16 points, and that was not expected and swung the pendulum in favor of the Clippers. One of the Clippers draw backs is that in their home games, the last 10 they are 2 and 8 ATS. However, the experts are expecting a strong game from the Clippers and think they will win this Game 5 108-102 and take a 3-2 lead in the series.
