The Clippers have been in splendid form, winning 5 of the 7 games they have played. Their star Paul George who was disappointing in last year’s Playoffs has stepped up and become a key offensive threat on the court.
The San Antonio Spurs suffered their 4th successive loss of the season against the Utah Jazz. Given the start they had, they will be disappointed to suffer from 4 losses in a row.
The Clippers face the Spurs at 10:00 PM ET tonight. Let’s take a look at the injury reports and the probable lineups of the teams.
The Clippers have the best record in the Western Conference with 5 victories in the first 7 games they have played. After a close defeat to the Jazz, the Clippers had an impressive win against the Phoenix Suns.
They have a healthy squad and only have a single minor casualty in Jay Scrubb, their backup shooting guard, who is suffering from a foot injury. Forward Marcus Morris is questionable for the game against the Spurs.
With a healthy roster, the Clippers will hope that they can continue their winning ways against the Spurs.

The San Antonio Spurs lost yet again as they were simply outclassed by the Jazz in their last match. Given that they are missing some key players, the squad won’t be that disheartened. They now have a record of 2 wins and 4 losses.
Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge is listed as questionable for their clash against the Clippers. Rotation guards Derrick White and Quinndary Weatherspoon will also miss the game against the Jazz with a toe injury and a knee injury, respectively.
They will look to make a comeback from the losses, but will face tough opposition in the Clippers.
