The Daily Clipper – Make My Day Edition

Check out some Clippers and Spurs news, as we look forward to their match up at Staples.


The Spurs team remind me of Clint Eastwood (pre-Republican Convention). Gritty, tough as nails, and always making winners (as in movies). The Spurs are 4-0 WITHOUT Manu!! They have good perimeter shooters around Duncan. If the Clippers don't close out on those shooters, it will not be pretty! Let's hope some sulking in the last two loses for a day or so will kick this team's defense in gear! On with today's stories!
