Notebook: Spurs 96, Clippers 86


Posted Saturday May 19, 2012 7:49PM

By Dan Arritt, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: The 16-game winning streak appeared to be on precarious footing after the Spurs fell behind by 24 points early in the second quarter Saturday afternoon. San Antonio obviously didn't see it that way. The Spurs regrouped later in the second quarter and cut the lead in half, then exploded in the third, pulling away for a 96-86 victory against the Clippers in Game 3 of the Western Conference second-round series at Staples Center, giving them a commanding 3-0 series edge.

QUOTABLE: "We did not plan on being down that much in the first quarter, but we understood that they were going to make a run early, and we needed to sustain. We've been through enough of them to understand that's how it goes. It was great poise by our entire team."
-- Spurs forward Tim Duncan

THE STAT: The 17 straight victories by the Spurs is the NBA's longest winning streak that continued into the playoffs since San Antonio also won 17 straight in 2004. That streak ended with a loss to the Lakers in Game 3 of their second-round series, and the Spurs went on to drop four straight to lose the series in six.

TURNING POINT: The momentum began to swing midway through the second quarter when the Spurs trimmed the 24-point deficit to 10 at the half. Both sides traded buckets the first couple minutes of the third quarter before the Spurs unleashed a 24-0 run to take a 69-57 lead with 2:05 remaining in the third. The Clippers missed 12 consecutive baskets during the run, which lasted 8 minutes 13 seconds. They managed to cut the deficit back to eight at the end of the quarter, but never got closer than seven down the stretch.

HOT: A month after his 36th birthday, Duncan continues to play as if he's 10 years younger. He scored 19 points on 8-for-16 shooting and grabbed 13 rebounds for his fourth double-double of the postseason. He also pitched in four assists and three blocked shots. His counterpart on the Clippers, Blake Griffin, had the only strong game among the L.A. starters, finishing with 28 points, 16 rebounds, two steals and three blocked shots. Mo Williams gave the Clippers some lift off the bench, scoring 19 points on 8-for-12 shooting.

NOT: San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich told reporters after the game it was clear that Clippers point guard Chris Paul is not 100 percent healthy. Paul, who suffered a hip injury in the first-round series against Memphis, shot 5-for-17 from the floor and scored 12 points. Paul is 12-for-39 in the series and is averaging 9.3 points, 10.5 less than what he averaged in the regular season. At least the Clippers received something from Paul. That wasn't the case for veteran small forward Caron Butler, who missed his only two shots and went scoreless.

GOOD MOVE: For the third time in the series, Popovich elected to intentionally foul an L.A. player at the end of the first half. This time he sent DeAndre Jordan to the line with 1:25 left in the second quarter and he missed both free throws. Popovich again reached into his bag of tricks with just under three minutes remaining in the game and the Spurs sitting on a 13-point lead. He ordered his team to intentionally foul Reggie Evans on three consecutive possession, and Evans responded by shooting 2-for-6 from the line, killing any chance of a miraculous comeback.

BAD MOVE: Clippers head coach Vinny Del Negro continues to prove he's not in the same class as Popovich. He left Jordan and Evans, two of the team's worst free-throw shooters, in the game when it was obvious the Spurs were planning to intentionally foul. He also waited too long to put Williams back in the game in the fourth quarter. Williams made his first two shots of the final quarter to cut the deficit to seven with 9:14 remaining, but was soon taken out for a breather. Del Negro didn't reinsert him until one minute remained in the game and the Clippers down by 10 points. Williams made two more shots in the final minute, finishing 4-for-4 from the floor in the fourth.

QUOTABLE II: "You just want to cut the lead at halftime and that was what we were working on. Everything was very hard in the first [half]. We could not get an easy look. We turned the ball over and they were making 3s, fade-away jumpers and easy layups. Everything was going their way."
-- Spurs guard Manu Ginobili.

NOTABLE: The Spurs have won their first seven playoff games for the first time in franchise history ... No NBA team has ever rallied from an 0-3 deficit to win a playoff series ... The Clippers are 4-21 against the Spurs dating back to December 2003. They've lost all three games in this series by double digits.

UP NEXT: Game 4, Sunday in Los Angeles, 10:30 p.m. ET.
