On Friday night, the Spurs vs. Clippers live stream and televised matchup will feature Los Angeles back in action just a night after Golden State downed them 123-113. Despite holding a third quarter lead, the Clippers soon found themselves playing at the Warriors' mercy after a high-scoring attack. Even though it's at Staples Center, things won't get any easier as they'll face a well-rested San Antonio team Friday considered amongst NBA title contenders. The latest Spurs vs. Clippers 2017 NBA live streaming and TV action will be available from multiple sources.

San Antonio vs. LA matchup

This will be the San Antonio Spurs' first game since the 2017 NBA All-Star break. As of this report, the Spurs own a 43-13 record which is not only second-best in the Western Conference, but in the entire league. The team has gone 7-3 over their last 10 games and are outscoring opponents by over eight points per game.

Right now, San Antonio is only 4-1/2 games back of the Warriors, so they'll look to continue their winning ways to keep up the chase for that top spot. Among the top players to watch as always will be Kawhi Leonard, a name not mentioned often in the NBA MVP contenders, but he is still amongst the top five potential winners. Pau Gasol is a question mark right now in terms of his availability due to a fracture of the fourth metacarpal on his left hand last month.

The Clippers are currently 35-22 which has them sitting at No. 4 in the Western Conference. However, the Utah Jazz own an identical record as of this report.

Memphis is 34-24, while Oklahoma City is 32-25, so all three teams are capable of swapping positions between the No. 4 through No. 7 spots in the West. Los Angeles will look to stay at that four spot or better in order to secure home court advantage for at least the first round of the postseason.

The good news according to ESPN is they may finally have their star point guard Chris Paul in the lineup for this crucial game.

Paul is the team leader in both assists (9.7 per game) and steals (2.3 per game) as of right now and ranks second to Blake Griffin in scoring with his 17.5 points per game.

Odds makers have the San Antonio Spurs listed as three-point road favorites, with a moneyline price of -150. The home team is currently at +130 as underdogs, while the over/under is set at 211 points right now.
