Spurs Dominate Clippers, Cruise To Victory In Game 2

 It was more of the same from the San Antonio Spurs Thursday night in Game 2 of their playoff series with the Los Angeles Clippers. A dominating, methodical, 105-88 victory by the Spurs looked easy for the hometeam. The Spurs have not lost a basketball game in over a month, and are 27-2 in their last 29 games.

Tim Duncan, at 36 years old, continues to play like he’s 26. In Game 2, he went for 18 points on 9-14 shooting in only 33 minutes on the floor.

“I feel unbelievable; better than I ever have in the last 4 or 5 years,” said Duncan after the win. “For whatever reason, I’m healthy and I feel great.” It shows in his game.

Duncan’s teammate Tony Parker (pictured above) was the true star of the night. The 4-time All-Star celebrated his 30th birthday Thursday with a 22 point game that included 5 assists, 5 rebounds, and 3 steals.

Chris Paul continues to struggle in this series. The longtime Hornet and current Clipper point guard only scored 10 points, turning the ball over a woeful 8 times.

Blake Griffin had a nice game offensively in the defeat, scoring 20 points. However, he only had 1 rebound in 37 minutes on the floor. He must be more aggresive on the glass in Game 3 if the Clippers want to avoid being swept.

Game 3 shifts to Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon. Tip-off from the Staples Center is set for 2:30.
