When: 10:30 PM ET, Tuesday, April 28, 2015Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CaliforniaTV: TNT, FSN Southwest (San Antonio), Prime Ticket (Los Angeles)NBA Odds: Los Angeles -2, Over/Under: 205The Clippers ad CP3 both bounced back from their humbling 100-73 Game 3 home loss to San Antonio on Sunday. After scoring just seven points in his previous game, Paul scored a game-high 34 points on 11-of-19 shooting in Game 4, although it was little-used backup Austin Rivers that may have saved the Clippers’ season with a stunning 16-point effort off the bench.Now in his third year, the often-maligned son of head coach Doc Rivers, commented on his performance afterward.“This is something I know I can do,” Rivers told reporters. “It wasn’t a surprise for me. Obviously it is to you guys but I’ve been working so hard and this team has been working so hard.”All-star power forward Blake Griffin added 20 points and 19 rebounds in the win.The Clippers regained home-court advantage in the series, but the Spurs don’t seem very worried according to Hall of Fame-bound power forward Tim Duncan.clippers-spurs-online-betting“It’s on the road, it’s on their home court,” Duncan told reporters. “It’s good for them obviously but we’ve won there before. We know how to win on the road.”The Spurs got a team-high 26 points from Kawhi Leonard in the loss with Duncan adding 22 points on 8-for-13 shooting and Tony Parker chipping in 18 points.San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich was disappointed with his team’s effort in Game 4 and did not hide his feelings afterward.“We didn’t execute sharply enough in what we wanted to do strategy-wise or just in general basketball play. I’m just more disappointed in the lack of focus than anything else, and not being as sharp in a lot of situations.”

Game Analysis

Make no mistake about it NBA betting buffs, not only can the San Antonio Spurs win in Los Angeles, but I expect them to do just that tonight, although I will admit that I’m expecting a flat-out thriller that comes down to the final possession or two for each ballclub.clippers-spurs-nba-bettingI like the fact that the Spurs are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an loss and given their collective ages, a surprising 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games playing on one day of rest.I know ‘Timmy’ and company have gone 2-5 ATS in their last seven games, but I’m backing them to win and cash in seeing as how the Clippers are just 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games and an awful 1-6 ATS in their last seven home games.With the Underdog going 12-4 ATS in the last 16 meetings, I say back the San Antonio Spurs to win and narrowly cash in!

The Pick: San Antonio Spurs +2 Points

NBA bettors that like to et the Over/Under Total should know the Over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in Los Angeles and 9-4 in the last 13 meetings overall.
