Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
It’s been five seasons since Clippers were last outrebounded by 24 rebounds or more like they were tonight.
Have to go back to March 2017, when Rockets outrebounded Clippers 62-36 in a 122-103 LA loss.
Starters in that game for LAC: Paul/Redick/Mbah a Moute/Griffin/Jordan – 1:36 AM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Ivica Zubac with straight talk tonight: “From start to finish, no effort, no urgency — couldn’t secure a rebound and on and on and on. It’s tough.” – 1:34 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Ivica Zubac says “We’re not that talented” to come into games without the appropriate effort to win games.
“Start to finish — no effort, no urgency… on and on and on.” – 1:34 AM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
“It was embarrassing. Rebounding is a team job, you gotta rebound if you want to win games. Tonight … terrible job.” — Ivica Zubac. – 1:29 AM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
“I don’t know, I was shocked when they told me.” – Dejounte Murray when asked where the 23 offensive rebounds for the team came from tonight. – 1:18 AM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Paul George said weeks ago that opponents would continue to crash the offensive glass because they don’t respect the Clippers in transition (they rank third-worst in PPP in transition, btw). He said it again tonight.
“It’s just deflating,” George said. “We can’t rebound.” – 1:18 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
George praises Dejounte Murray for taking his game to the next level post-ACL injury, notes that his improved shooting makes him an elevated threat.
Says that his status now is a credit to himself and Spurs organization. – 1:13 AM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
PG on Dejounte Murray: “Now he can shoot, that was the biggest negative about his game — but now he’s become a good shooter and definitely a good shooter in the midrange. You can see he’s poised, taking what the defense gives him …” – 1:12 AM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
Some bright spots for the Spurs on defense tonight against the Clips:
-LAC 27 pts from 3PT

Paul George explains that he had a sprained ligament in his elbow, but that he feels good.
As for the game: “You get games like that throughout the season.” Says team was lethargic, effort wasn’t there, energy wasn’t there.
You’ve heard this before. – 1:09 AM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Paul George said he had a sprained ligament in his right elbow, which had caused his five-game absence. – 1:09 AM

The Spurs also collected a season high 23 offensive rebounds tonight.
The previous season high was 16.
That number was demolished tonight. – 12:57 AM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Ty Lue says he saw some things he has never seen before in this blowout loss to the Spurs such as “114 shots, 23 offensive rebounds…. I don’t think I have ever seen that before… it was a walk in the park… we might need some Ben Wallace, some Rodman drills.” – 12:56 AM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Spurs 116, Clippers 92 | Final | “We gotta get back to learning how to play with him (PG) on the floor. … 114 shots has to be close to an NBA record, I’ve never seen that before.” – 12:54 AM

The Spurs improve to 4-0 when leading by 25 points in a game this season.
The Spurs are also now 6-4 when winning or tying the 3PT line. – 12:51 AM
Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Anyone upset about OKC’s win cause of lottery odds, enjoy some holiday cheer:
Clippers drop their 3rd straight… by 24 to the 11-18 Spurs… with PG13 back… so they’re close to the lottery… and have the 3rd hardest remaining schedule.
(OKC owns their picks until infinity.) – 12:45 AM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The halftime trend held up.
The Spurs continued to dominate the paint and hold the 3PT line in the second half.

Spurs get season-highs in rebounds and assists, paste Clippers 116-92 on the second night of a road back-to-back.
3-game losing streak for Clippers, largest margin of defeat this season, and now they go to Sacramento to face a team they have already lost twice to this month. – 12:39 AM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Spurs have 22 (and counting) offensive rebounds here.
The Clippers tend to give up a lot of those, but the most an opponent had this year before tonight? Miami had 18.
But OKC had 17 two nights ago. – 12:34 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Pretty good wrap on this game just watching Dejounte after the timeout.
Missed a middy, got his own rebound, dished McDermott.
Next possession, gets a bucket off another 2nd chance.
Then he gets a steal after that.
22/12/13/4 steals for Dejounte Murray tonight in LA. – 12:31 AM
Ralph Lawler @Ohmeomy
Clips down by 29 in the 4th Q v Spurs. 12:30 EST. Hate to do it, but – Good night. – 12:30 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers have cut Spurs lead from 30 to 21 after solid transition defense from George and a heady tap from Winslow leads to a Mann dunk.
Likely too late for this game, but considering the hangover from Saturday night, Clippers could use a good note to finish before Sacramento. – 12:25 AM

Clippers have scored 17 points in the first five minutes of the fourth quarter — that’s as many points as they scored in the entire third. – 12:25 AM

The Clippers as a team have 34 paint points.
Spurs winning the paint by 22 points and have a 29 point lead – 12:18 AM
Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
Warriors 113, Kings 98. Buddy Hield (80), Tyrese Haliburton (79) and Harrison Barnes (77) logged a ton of minutes over the past two days. They’ll play the Clippers on Wednesday at Golden 1 Center and then a much-needed three-day break. – 12:18 AM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
Not this time. The Kings traveled to San Francisco by bus following their win over the Spurs on Sunday night, where the mighty Warriors were waiting. Sacramento fought the good fight, but ran out of gas late. Here are 6 quick thoughts from the 113-98 loss. – 12:17 AM

So much for a holiday game.
This may be the worst Clippers performance in front of a crowd since Game 3 of the 2019 quarterfinals vs Warriors.
Spurs up 92-65 with the Christmas festivities. – 12:14 AM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Spurs 92, Clippers 65 (yes, sixty-five) | End 3 | The home team is shooting 35% (26.9% from 3) — and for all those misses, they have only eight offensive rebounds to show for it. They were outscored 30-17 in the third period. – 12:14 AM

The third quarter is over: Spurs 92, Clippers 65
I suppose the, uh, silver lining for Ty Lue in a game like this is that he won’t need to play Paul George a ton of minutes in his first game back. – 12:12 AM

Pop is so mad at Lonnie Walker for losing track of Batum there at the end of the third. Batum missed the corner 3, but shouldn’t have been open. – 12:12 AM
Matt Williams @StatsWilliams
Dejounte Murray is the 2nd Spurs player with a triple-double through 3 quarters under Gregg Popovich (since 1996-97).
Tim Duncan did this on March 14, 2003 against the Clippers (24 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists). – 12:11 AM

Clippers have only forced six turnovers and haven’t scored on any of them. That, plus a 2nd-chance scoring advantage that is now 15-3, prevents any comeback opportunity.

If you thought LA’s defensive rebounding was bad Saturday night, it reached new depths in this first half tonight.
12 offensive rebounds allowed leading to 13-3 2nd chance points advantage for Spurs, as they lead 62-48 at halftime.
Remember when Spurs punted offensive rebounds? – 11:33 PM

Spurs took the lead up to 13 after Clippers allow their TENTH offensive rebound of the game.
But back-to-back 3s from Jackson and Kennard force a Popovich timeout.

Brandon Boston Jr. got himself a layup after two offensive rebounds.
But overall, a struggle for the bench, as they have only 10 points on 4/11 FGs.

The difference in that first quarter was Jock Landale, who only recently passed Drew Eubanks on the depth chart at center.
Landale had a dunk between 2 3s while outscoring Clippers bench 8-5, and Spurs lead 35-27.
Also helps that Spurs are totaling Clips on glass and have 1 TO. – 11:05 PM
