Notebook: Spurs 102, Clippers 99


Posted Monday May 21, 2012 2:10AM

By Dan Arritt, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: The Spurs continue to prove they can beat teams in a variety of ways. In the first three games of the Western Conference second-round series against the Clippers, they took control in the third quarter. On Sunday night in Game 4 at Staples Center, they had to wait a little longer, but ultimately prevailed in the final minutes by stopping one of the best closers in the NBA, point guard Chris Paul, allowing them to finish the sweep with a 102-99 victory.

QUOTABLE: "We had a lot of guys contribute and that's what we've been able to do most of the year. Hopefully we can continue to do it."
-- Spurs coach Gregg Popovich

THE STAT: The Spurs have won 18 consecutive games and eight straight in the playoffs, sweeping back-to-back opponents for the first time since 1999.

TURNING POINT: Paul made two free throws with 52 seconds remaining to cut San Antonio's lead to 100-99, and Spurs guard Tony Parker missed a short jumper on the other end. Following a timeout, Paul drove into the lane while guarded by Danny Green, but decided to pass the ball backwards to Caron Butler near the top of the key. Kawhi Leonard got a hand on the ball and it ended up in the hands of Green, who was fouled with 10 seconds left. He made just one of two free throws, however, giving the Clippers a chance to tie or take the lead. Again, it was Paul who drove into the key, but he appeared to slip or lose his balance under pressure from Green and his four-footer missed badly. Parker went back to the line with 1.2 seconds on the clock and made one of two. With no timeouts left, the Clippers were forced to throw a long inbounds pass to Mo Williams, who couldn't get off a shot before the clock expired.

HOT: Spurs back-up center Tiago Splitter filled in nicely for veteran Tim Duncan while he rested for a long stretch from midway in the first quarter to late in the second. Splitter finished with a playoff career-high 11 points on 5-for-7 shooting and also grabbed seven rebounds. Splitter has improved significantly since his rookie season, when he battled injuries and inconsistency. The Clippers got another big game from back-up guard Eric Bledsoe in the series. Bledsoe, who scored 23 points in the Game 1 loss, finished with 17 points, including 11 in the fourth quarter, when he helped keep the Clippers in the game.

QUOTABLE II: "This year it's like getting another top draft pick."
-- Popovich on Splitter

NOT: With the talent the Spurs have on the roster, Parker doesn't need to be at his best for San Antonio to win. He wasn't very good in Game 4, shooting 5-for-13 with 17 points and six turnovers, but his teammates picked up the slack.

GOOD MOVE: Williams gave the home crowd something to be excited about early on. He drove to the basket and split between Gary Neal and Manu Ginobili as he went up for a layup. He drew contact just as he jumped in the air, knocking him off balance. As he spun with his back to the rim, he blindly threw the ball toward the backboard and it somehow banked in for a 3-point play that cut the San Antonio lead to 28-24. Unfortunately, the Spurs reeled off six straight points after that play.

BAD MOVE: As the minutes wound down and the Clippers needed a stop, the Spurs beat L.A. on back-to-back backdoor layups. Every basket San Antonio scored in the closing minutes seemed to come from about two feet away, while the Clippers were forced to heave up heavily contested perimeter shots.

NOTABLE: In addition to Splitter, two other bench players scored in double figures for San Antonio. Neal had 14 and Ginobili contributed 11. Paul finished with 23 points and 11 assists for his third double-double of the series. Griffin contributed 21 points and five rebounds. Duncan scored 21 points for the Spurs and grabbed nine rebounds, and Green finished with 14 points, shooting 3-for-5 from 3-point range.

UP NEXT: Game 1 vs. the winner of the Lakers and Thunder, Sunday in San Antonio.
