Keys to Beating Clippers in Game 7

-Make Threes

If the Spurs want to beat the Clippers for the third time at Staples Center in the series, they must make lots of threes. It all starts with Danny Green, he has struggled all series. Green is shooting 31% from the field and 27% from three in the series. Patty Mills and Belinelli have been terrific in the series, so one can expect them to deliver.

Tim Duncan Aggressive

In game six Tim Duncan was good when he was looking to score. Tim Duncan went 6-9 from the field and finished with 12 points and 13 rebounds. In order for the Spurs to win Duncan must have a vintage “Duncan” performance, which means he would have to take more shots.

Prediction

101. 77. 96. 29.

The biggest reason I have the Clippers winning is because they dropped two of three home games in the series thus far. The Clippers win find a way to finally close one out, but the Spurs will give them a run for their money without question.
