The San Antonio Spurs steamrolled the Los Angeles Clippers in the second round of last season's Western Conference playoffs, but the Clippers exacted a bit of revenge on Nov. 7 of this season when they crushed the Spurs 106-84 at Staples Center. The Spurs, though, will get a chance to punch back on Monday night, when they welcome L.A. to San Antonio.
That victory over the Spurs kick started a five-game win streak that the Clippers are still riding, one that includes victories over the Atlanta Hawks, Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls. The Spurs, meanwhile, have chugged along since that loss in L.A., winning four of their last five games -- with the one exception being a loss to the New York Knicks. The game between the two teams tips off at 8:30 p.m. ET Monday, and will be broadcast locally.
Here's the rest of Monday night's schedule, which features seven total games:
