In many ways, the Clippers and San Antonio Spurs are pretty evenly matched — the key word being "pretty."They both have dynamic point guards: The Clippers have Chris Paul, who was third in the voting for NBA most valuable player; the Spurs have Tony Parker, who was fifth.They both have top-notch power forwards: The Clippers have rising star Blake Griffin and the Spurs have aging but sage star Tim Duncan.But there remain major differences between the teams.The Clippers are in the playoffs for only the fifth time in 31 years, reaching the second round for only the second time during that span.The Spurs are a model of sustained success, an organization with a winning culture. When it looked as if the Spurs would fade away after a first-round ouster last season by Memphis, all San Antonio did this season was tie the Chicago Bulls for the best regular-season record (50-16).And then there is Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich. He was just named the NBA's coach of the year for leading San Antonio to that top record. He has led the Spurs to four NBA championships.The Clippers lost the three-game season series to the Spurs, 2-1, but L.A. won in San Antonio the last time the two teams met, in March.
