Despite hitting shots down the stretch, the Clippers were defeated by the Spurs 116-113
Los Angeles- The Clippers went on a 6-2 run late in the fourth, but could not get the ball to go in with .20 seconds left in regulation, as they were defeated by the San Antonio Spurs in a nail-biter.
Despite Paul George not being in the line-up, the Clippers responded and played with more energy on both sides of the floor. With under two minutes left in regulation, Lou Williams hit a much needed three pointer to keep the Clippers within striking distance. After a couple of defensive stops, the Clippers hit a couple more shots to bring the game to one.
The Clippers had the ball with under .30 seconds left in the game and had three different chances to nail wide-open shots, but the ball kept rimming out of the basket. LA was forced to foul and eventually the Spurs went on to pull out the victory.
Patrick Beverley finished with 20 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists
