What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Thunder loss + Clippers loss + Spurs win + Blazers win + Celtics win = big night for the OKC draft picks.
Clippers have lost 5 of their last 7 and have an upcoming 8 game road trip. 6 of the 8 vs teams with winning records.
Tankathon sims could get real fun for Thunder fans. – 1:22 AM

The Clippers didn’t have it.
But then they did.
And then they did not.
Ty Lue’s team is having a hell of a time scoring lately, and it cost them again Saturday in San Antonio.

Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
The triple take: Spurs 101, Clippers 94
1. Spurs need both parts of their D&D backcourt to be effective (duh).
2. Landale helped pick up the Jak slack.
3. Fourth quarter defense (and the Clippers’ own ineptitude) got the Spurs over.

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Clippers scored 94 points on 38/100 FGs tonight in San Antonio.
It’s the first time since March 2006 at Phoenix that Clippers failed to break 100 points while attempting at least 100 shots.
16 years. But they made the playoffs that season 😵‍💫 – 11:52 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
This BLOB bucket from T Mann was the only points the Clippers scored in the last 7:24 of tonight’s game.
Spurs finished on a 14-2 run over that time, a turnaround that coincided with Marcus Morris coming in for Batum. Outside of Mann’s bucket, Clippers missed the other 10 shots. pic.twitter.com/j5uV1V8r6911:38 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
To paraphrase Amir Coffey, he felt the Clippers took good shots despite their long scoring droughts. But, when it wasn’t working, he was because of the same things Nico Batum ID’d earlier this week — the ball isn’t moving side to side. – 11:19 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
100+ shots and 21+ offensive rebounds is usually a recipe for victory. Teams were 6-2 when doing that this season entering tonight. Clippers hit those benchmarks in their loss. – 11:17 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
With the win the Spurs have moved from 13th to 12th out West.
Just 1.5 games behind Portland (10th) in the standings for a play-in spot.
48% of the season left to be played – 11:15 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
In the fourth quarter tonight the Spurs held the Clippers to 14 points.
They hadn’t held an opponent below 20 points in a quarter since the Jazz game on 12/27/21. – 11:08 PM
Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Serge Ibaka: 10 points, 10 rebounds (seven offensive), +5 for the game.
Only other Clipper who wasn’t a minus: TMann = 0. – 11:06 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Tonight in San Antonio, Clippers failed to make a field goal in:
– the last 4:11 of first quarter
– the first 3:46 of second quarter
– the last 4:18 of game
That’s more than 12 minutes of bucket-less offense. A quarter and change. On a night LA shot 8 FTs in a 7-point loss. – 11:05 PM
Paul Garcia @PaulGarciaNBA
The Spurs were able to hold on for the win while scoring a season low 36 points in the paint.
The 22 points from the FT line helped with the lack of paint scoring. – 11:04 PM

The Spurs picked up their 6th win in crunch time this season in 19 tries.
Derrick and Dejounte accounted for all 8 of their points in crunch time. – 11:02 PM
Kyle Goon @kylegoon
There can’t be much rationalizing for a blowout of this magnitude. Denver’s without Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. Jeff Green and Bones Hyland have run wild. The Clippers, without Paul George, beat the Nuggets earlier this week. The Lakers have had plenty of rest. – 11:00 PM

Clippers failed to score in last 4:18 of the game, mirroring their close to the first quarter and start of the second quarter. Literally ran out of buckets.
San Antonio wins 101-94, ending game on 8-0 run. Spurs take season series 2-1, Clippers fall to 21-23 this season. – 10:44 PM

Back to back buckets by Dejounte Murray in crunch time.
He has 16 points now and gives the Spurs a 3 point lead.
Murray’s 16 points:
8 in the paint
8 from mid-range – 10:36 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Going to be very interesting to see how Clippers close, because Dejounte is most sure of his offense when he’s hunted Zubac/Ibaka/Hartenstein. And San Antonio has not been confident late in these games.
97-94 San Antonio lead, 3:24 left. Jackson/Morris: 22 points, 9/29 FGs. – 10:36 PM

9 points from 3PT
6 points in the paint
2 points from the foul line
He’s tied with Keldon as the leading scorer on the team – 10:33 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Derrick White has arguably been Spurs’ best player tonight. And he was critical last month vs Clippers as well.
Second unit did their part. Starters going to determine this one. – 10:31 PM

It switches so fast for the Clippers this season. They have two points in what has nearly been four minutes. San Antonio closing. – 10:31 PM

Effort is going to complete this comeback, and Tyronn Lue calls a quality control timeout with Clippers holding largest lead at 92-87. Unlike last month, San Antonio not looking as spry in this no rest game.
7:13 left to play. Rare game where Clippers hold edge in rebounds + TOs – 10:26 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
Not to pummel home a point from yesterday, but without Poeltl the Spurs are getting absolutely clocked on the offensive boards. Clippers have 19 ORB and we’ve still got 7:13 to play. – 10:26 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
The Clippers have tied their season high with 17 offensive rebounds. They’d done it twice before (vs. Sacramento, vs. Brooklyn). – 10:20 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
The Spurs got a 16-point lead, then played as if at least some of the Clippers wouldn’t eventually rise to the level of “competent NBA player.” Now they’re going to have to fight out the final 10 minutes to win. – 10:18 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
8-0 Clippers run to start fourth quarter means

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Spurs 85, Clippers 80 – End 3 – Clippers looking like they’ll break 90 for the first time in a couple games, anyway. That was a good third quarter: 13 for 25 (52%), 7 for 13 (53.8%), outscore their hosts 33-29.
Coffey with 10 of those points. – 10:15 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Getting into bonus early saved Spurs from completely losing the lead, as they outscored Clippers 12-0 on 3rd quarter FTs. Mind you, San Antonio is worst team in NBA at getting to line, Clippers are best at defending without fouling.
San Antonio up 85-80 through 3 quarters. – 10:14 PM

The Clippers will go into the fourth quarter trailing 85-80. They won the third quarter by four points. Amir Coffey had 10 points in the quarter and 20 overall. – 10:14 PM
Jeff McDonald @JMcDonald_SAEN
The Spurs seemed a basket or two from breaking the game open in the third quarter. Instead, they’ll go into the 4Q ahead 85-80. Better than trailing, but have to worry if that lack of urgency comes back to bite them. – 10:12 PM

Clippers came into tonight allowing 17.5 opponent free-throw attempts per game, fewest in the NBA. Tonight hasn’t fit that trend. Spurs have taken 21 free throws with just over 13 minutes still to play. – 10:10 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Amir Coffey has again been indispensable for the Clippers, with 20 points. His 26 minutes also tie Morris for a team high. Ty Lue said before tipoff he’s under a bit of a minutes restriction, but the Clippers need every minute they can get from him. – 10:04 PM

Clips have tied the Spurs at the 3PT line.
That was a big advantage for SA in the first half – 10:03 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Ty Lue and Zu had an extended convo when Zu checked out, presumably about Keldon Johnson’s spin cycle off Coffey that led to a bucket.
While that was going on, Clippers cut San Antonio lead down to 77-70. Coffey with 20, and it looks like he should have a new career high tonight – 10:02 PM

3s by Nico, Amir and Reggie help the Clippers chip into the Spurs’ lead a bit: It’s now eight points: 66-58.
Nico’s first, Reggie’s first and Amir’s third 3. Where’d the be without that guy on the two-way deal? (He’s currently 4 for 8, 3 for 6 from 3 for 13.) – 9:56 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
The Clippers have been at their best when the Spurs have been their most generous. I feel like Pop has been patient but some of these passes have been just poor decisions.
San Antonio still leads 66-58 with 8:20 left in third quarter following Jackson’s 3 after Vassell turnover. – 9:54 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Landale’s ability to shoot just put the record skip on Zubac’s closeout.
Needless to say, you don’t get that with Jakob Poeltl – 9:51 PM

Clippers could obviously use a good second half from Marcus Morris and Reggie Jackson. Those two combined for 12 points on 5/15 FGs in first half.
It’s not all bad. At least Morris made a couple of 3s, and both have two assists each. Jackson has only one TO, Morris has none. – 9:38 PM

Spurs led by as many as 16 points in the second quarter. Not the world’s best finish to the first half, but they’ll lead the Clippers 56-47 at break.
