KEY GAME INFORMATION
LA CLIPPERS: GUARDS: CHRIS PAUL was every bit an MVP-caliber player in his first year in L.A. They should monitor his minutes late in the regular season to keep him fresh for the playoffs. . . His Achilles is on schedule to be healed by December, and CHAUNCEY BILLUPS will start once he's healthy. He's likely to lose athleticism, and his leash could be short if he shoots as poorly as he did last year . . . JAMAL CRAWFORD steps in to lead the second unit. We'll see how quickly his inefficient, shoot-first ways grow stale . . . ERIC BLEDSOE was a stud in the playoffs. He can't play extended minutes alongside Paul, but coach Vinny Del Negro knows he has to get Bledsoe on the floor . . . WILLIE GREEN provides capable depth, but he's on the outside looking in at the rotation. FORWARDS: BLAKE GRIFFIN's knee injury likely isn't serious enough to linger into the season. He's starting to develop some post moves to go along with his dunks . . . CARON BUTLER played hurt for most of last year, but still did enough to nail down a starting job for this season . . . LAMAR ODOM moped his way back to L.A. Don't be surprised if he has a strong bounce-back year, especially considering he'll be the Clippers' best defensive big . . . GRANT HILL could see some starts, but more likely the 40-year-old is pegged for limited minutes . . . MATT BARNES will replace Hill once he injures himself again . . . RONNY TURIAF will provide some of the toughness they lost when Reggie Evans left . . . TREY THOMPKINS will continue to languish on the bench, especially after sitting out the preseason with a knee injury. CENTERS: He can block shots and rebound, but at this point DeANDRE JORDAN is just too much of a defensive liability in space to play 30-plus minutes. That's why the Clippers will often pair Lamar Odom with Blake Griffin in the frontcourt . . . RYAN HOLLINS can also defend the basket and has six fouls to give.
SAN ANTONIO: GUARDS: TONY PARKER played at an MVP level last year. His eye injury is obviously not an issue, and he was constantly getting on coach Gregg Popovich to let him finish meaningless games last year. There's no reason he can't repeat last year's performance . . . MANU GINOBILI dealt with a series of nagging injuries last year, and it's clear the team will have to monitor his regular-season workload . . . GARY NEAL provides solid minutes in this rotation, mostly at the point, and is able to consistently knock down threes . . . DANNY GREEN's rotation spot is in a bit of peril. He was too much of an offensive liability in last year's Western Conference Finals . . . NANDO de COLO is a combo guard who can provide instant offense off the bench. He can shoot it and does a nice job getting to the line . . . PATTY MILLS steps in as another viable option in this loaded backcourt . . . CORY JOSEPH's roster spot is in jeopardy after a middling D-League season. FORWARDS: TIM DUNCAN will continue to save it up for the playoffs. He still has plenty left in the tank, but he'll get tons of rest in March and April and more and more often defers to Tony Parker on offense when he does play . . . There's plenty to like about KAWHI LEONARD, who proved to be useful on both ends of the court last season. He'll be asked to be a little more aggressive offensively this year and should even have a couple of sets designed for him . . . STEPHEN JACKSON was a bit of a disaster in Milwaukee before landing with the Spurs last year. He's another veteran who will be paced during the regular season. And while he's been a facilitator in the past, he's really just a catch-and-shoot guy in San Antonio . . . MATT BONNER will continue to come off the bench and hoist some threes. CENTERS: BORIS DIAW's pick-and-pop ability makes him Popovich's top choice in the center rotation . . . TIAGO SPLITTER looks to be a career second-unit guy. He works hard and can defend, but he's just too clunky on the offensive end . . . DeJUAN BLAIR can pick up some cheap baskets, but his lack of offensive skills and defensive size makes him a fringe rotation player.

*Clippers-Spurs Preview* ========================

By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO STATS Writer

Los Angeles (49-23) at San Antonio (54-17), 8:30 p.m. EDT

Reaching 50 wins is rather routine for the San Antonio Spurs, but it's uncharted territory for the Los Angeles Clippers.

Winning three straight regular-season games in San Antonio would also be a new feat.

The Clippers look to clinch the best season in franchise history Friday night when they face the Western Conference-leading Spurs, who continue a daunting late-season stretch.

San Antonio (54-17) has reached the 50-win mark in 14 straight seasons, and has already assured itself a spot in the playoffs along with Los Angeles (49-23).

While the Clippers are going to the postseason in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1991-92 and 92-93, they're on the brink of doing it as the best team in franchise history.

Los Angeles tied the team's 38-year-old record for wins in a season Wednesday while setting a mark for the most on the road at 21 as it beat New Orleans 105-91.

With 10 games left in the regular season, the Clippers are also closing in on their first division title, leading the Pacific by 8 1/2 games on second-place Golden State.

"At the beginning of the season, we set some goals for the team," coach Vinny Del Negro told the team's official website Tuesday. "Obviously, to win the division. It's all about improving throughout the season. I expect a lot from this team, but more importantly they expect a lot from themselves. We just want to play as consistently as possible, count them up at the end and hopefully be healthy going into the playoffs."

Chauncey Billups, who has been limited to 20 games this season, may be the main concern after aggravating a nagging right groin strain and exiting in the third quarter Wednesday. It's unclear if he'll play Friday.

Chris Paul will, and though he struggled against San Antonio in the playoffs last season, he has totaled 55 points and 19 assists in the Clippers' back-to-back regular-season wins at the AT&T Center.

Los Angeles is one of only four teams to win there this season after posting a 92-87 victory Nov. 19 as it held San Antonio to a season low-tying 35.4 percent from the field.

The Spurs, who lead the conference by 1 1/2 games over Oklahoma City, have won 27 of 29 at home since that defeat. They extended their winning streak at the AT&T Center to six games by defeating Denver 100-99 on Wednesday, beginning a three-game homestand that ends Sunday against Miami.

San Antonio has won three of four to begin this season-ending 15-game stretch that includes 11 meetings with teams currently in playoff position.

"The schedule that we have is something that should be embraced and considered a great opportunity," coach Gregg Popovich said, "because it's like taking a final exam every day or most days. To get ready for the playoffs, understanding the physicality, aggressiveness and competitiveness that's necessary night after night in the playoffs."

Having a healthy Tony Parker would help. Parker sprained his right middle finger late in the third quarter against the Nuggets, but returned to finish with 18 points and 11 assists and is expected to play Friday after X-rays were negative.

Parker totaled 15 points as the Spurs lost twice to the Clippers in November, but scored 31 points while sinking 12 of 16 from the floor in a 116-90 win at Los Angeles on Feb. 21. He also helped limit Paul to four points on 1-of-6 shooting in that victory.

Tim Duncan is averaging 25.0 points, 14.8 rebounds and 3.4 blocks over the past five home games. Duncan had 20 points and 14 boards against the Clippers there in November.
