The Clippers look to even up their series with the Spurs Thursday night as the two teams face off in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals.
San Antonio plays host to Los Angeles at the AT&T Center at 9:30 p.m. ET. You can watch the game on ESPN. If you can't get to a television, you can watch a live stream online of the contest at watchespn.com.
The Clippers look to bounce back after losing what was a largely uncompetitive contest in Game 1. The Spurs won 108-92, led by Tim Duncan's 26 points and 10 rebounds. Duncan turned back the clock after averaging just 15.4 points per game on the season.
The Spurs won easily, despite a lackluster performance from Tony Parker. The point guard has been San Antonio's best player this year, but registered just seven points on 1-9 shooting in Game 1.
L.A. can't afford to lose games when Parker plays so poorly. San Antonio led the West with 50 wins, and is considered the favorite to win the NBA Finals, according to multiple sportsbooks.
The biggest reason the Clippers lost was the performance of Chris Paul.
He scored just six points on 3-13 shooting from the field. The point guard transformed Los Angeles from a perennial loser to one of the best teams in the West. They need him to play well in order to stay competitive this series.
The Spurs are heavy favorites to take a 2-0 series lead. The Clippers are 10.5 point underdogs at most Las Vegas sportsbooks.
San Antonio shared the best home record with Miami at 28-5 in the regular season.
