The #Blazers, it should be noted, have only be swept once in a best-of-7 series, in '99 WCF by Spurs.

Clippers urgently need to show in Game 4 with Spurs it's not that bad fw.to/UkZhQ5h

Compare Leonard's smash with the utter weakness that was the Spurs' lone alley-oop of the 2012-13 regular season. regressing.deadspin.com/here-it-is-the…

Dan McCarney

Spurs getting crazy this yr. Have NINE alley-oop dunks in 85 games after just 3 in 20112-13, 7 in 2013-14. (For reference, Clips have 123).

The Spurs went 7 games in Round One and won the title. The Celtics couldn't beat the Hawks the first year of Big 3. Teams lose in postseason

Magic Johnson

I love watching the Spurs because they play the game the right way with great ball & player movement, no egos, every… whosay.com/l/rSyatOi

Magic Johnson

Clippers have the talent to beat the Spurs but they have to do the little things, play great defense, no turnovers and give a great effort.

Magic Johnson

If the Clippers are going to beat Spurs, they have to be mentally tough. That means executing the game plan on both ends of the floor.

Magic Johnson

The Spurs role players in Game 3 last night played much better than the Clippers role players.

Magic Johnson

The San Antonio Spurs are about excellence on both sides of the floor and we saw that last night in their 100-73 win over the Clippers.

Let's repeat that: When the Spurs get stuck on offense, the winningest playoff trio in NBA history gives way to Kawhi Leonard.

More from Redick on Spurs D as Clippers, No. 1 in O efficiency, are averaging almost 14 points fewer per 100 trips: http://t.co/x1qp0zHqxF

Doc on Spurs D: "They were so much more physical. They played so hard defensively. Their offense was good. Their defense was great."

Garbage time of Friday's Clips-Spurs was the first time this playoffs I just skimmed on thru. Felt dirty. Let's not let that happen again.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs are an early 6-point favorite for Game 4 Sunday. They were a 5-point favorite for Game 3 and led by 37 at one time.

Defense was pretty much expected. But across the board, Spurs to a man are surprised, even shocked, at offensive player Leonard is becoming.

Oh yeah, the Spurs also have the reigning DPOY to sic on Redick, who is shooting 31 pct in this series. Not a bad defensive tandem.

Twitter has made the Spurs are more adorable than toddler Steph Curry.

Adi Joseph

Gregg Popovich has run the Spurs for 21 years and made two bad first-round draft picks: Cory Alexander and James Anderson (yes, injury).

Tom Haberstroh

A note on Kawhi's alley-oop: the Spurs had one (1) alley-oop the entire playoffs last season. Like seeing a SHOOTING star.

Dan McCarney

Manu teased that Spurs get fined for alley oops. "Danny was very, very close. It almost didn't turn out so well." (Thank you Based Leonard)

Adi Joseph

The Spurs definitely have a great player development program, though. Makes you wonder how bad (Big 12 POY) James Anderson must have been.

Tom Haberstroh

A note on Kawhi's alley-oop: the Spurs had one (1) alley-oop the entire playoffs last season. Like seeing a shining star.

Can the Clippers even things up in Game 4 or do the Spurs take a commanding lead? Game 4 Preview: Clippers vs. Spurs- basketballinsiders.com/game-4-preview…

Spurs staffer says Leonard doesn't really want to do anything that doesn't involve sleep or basketball. Sounds right.

Clippers-Spurs Game 5 will be Tuesday at 7:30pm on TNT. If Golden State, Houston and Cleveland all complete sweeps it will move to 6:30pm.

To recap Spurs' last two games: Won Game 2, thanks to a 39-year-old. Won Game 3, thanks to a 23-year-old.

#Spurs dará máx. a Kawhi Leonard ($15mill./año), poco $ con ↑ límite salarial. Tendrán $ para rodearle de + talento: twitter.com/hoopshype/stat…

Marc Stein

Clippers, meanwhile, will have to make franchise history to topple Spurs & see Round 2. They've never won a series after falling behind 2-1
