After finally picking up their first win of the James Harden era on Friday night against Houston, the LA Clippers return to the court Monday for their first contest of a two-game road trip in San Antonio.
The Clippers will look to start another winning streak against a Spurs team that has struggled mightily as of late. San Antonio has lost eight games in a row, and has not won at home since October 27. The last time these two teams faced off was 22 days ago, and the result was a 40-point Clippers victory in Los Angeles.
Still, the phenomenal talent of Victor Wembanyama means the Clippers can not afford to take this game lightly. LA must approach each game with urgency in order to climb back up in the Western Conference standings.
Is Paul George playing tonight vs the Spurs?
Paul George is currently not on the Clippers injury report and will be ready to play Monday night. George has played all 11 games for LA this season, adding to a pleasantly surprising clean bill of health for the Clippers to start the season.
