The action gets underway on Saturday at 3:30PM Eastern Time as the San Antonio Spurs and LA Clippers will meet in game three of the NBA playoffs on ABC TV. The two teams met once during the regular season at Staples Center on February 18th and it was the Spurs with the 103-100 road win as a +3 point road underdog. LA Clippers have struggled in game one with the injuries to both Chris Paul and Blake Griffin in this best of seven series. The San Antonio Spurs has been good to bettors in the postseason as they have covered the pointspread in four of their first five games played. The Spurs have shot extremely well in the playoffs as the team has connected on 47.6% or better in four of their first five games in the playoffs.

The second game of the Staples Center NBA playoff doubleheader will tip off at 10:30PM Eastern Time as the Oklahoma City Thunder and LA Lakers will meet in game four over TNT TV. This is a difficult spot for an old LA Lakers team as they are forced to play a back to back as game three will be played at Staples Center on Friday night. LA went home smarting losing both games to the Oklahoma City Thunder in excruciating fashion. Game one saw LA get blown off the court by the Thunder 119-90 getting +7 ½ points. In game two the LA Lakers gave away the game with turnovers and blew a late seven point lead in a 77-75 road loss as a +8 point road underdog. It will be difficult for the Lakers to bounce back here as the club allowed the Thunder just 38.5% shooting and 77 points and went home a loser in game two. If the Lakers fall behind 3-0 heading into game four take note. Down 3-0 to Dallas in game four they dropped a 122-86 road decision to Mavericks to get eliminated in four straight in last year’s playoffs. In the 2008 NBA championship game the Lakers were closed out by the score of 131-92 at Boston.
