Joe D'Amico's NBA 100% Pure Profit Play
San Antonio vs. LA Clippers,
05/20/2012 22:30 EDT,
Score: 102 - 99
Point Spread: -5/-110 San Antonio
Today's winner is San Antonio over Los Angeles. This is my Pure Profit Play.
San Antonio will close out the series today in high-fashion. In Game 3, the Spurs were down 24 points but their savvy, intelligence, and post-season experience brought them back to win and cover. The team was down by 12 points in the 3rd quarter then scored 24 unanswered points to take a 12 point lead. San Antonio is one of the NBA's best road teams, sporting a 25-11 SU mark as a visitor and going 20-13-3 ATS. They have rattled off 17 straight victories, while super star, Tim Duncan has had four double-doubles in the squads seven post-season contests. Let's face it, this unit scores more PPG, has a better FG%, better FT%, rebounds better, and owns a far superior bench. They also rotate their top 8 or 9 players so no single player plays a ton of minutes. That makes them fresh on back-to-back days. The Clippers are hobbling. Their youth and playoff inexperience has hurt. However, having a banged-up Blake Griffen and an injured Chris Paul has decimated Los Angeles. Paul has had a total of four points in the 4th quarter through the three contests against San Antonio this series. I must also say that LA is truly missing the on-court leadership of Chancey Billups (out since February) this time of year. The Spurs are 7-1 ATS their L8 games played in LA, 14-3 ATS their L17 games vs. the Clippers, 18-6-3 ATS their L27 games played on the road, 35-12-4 ATS their L51 games played as a favorite. The Clippers are 3-7 ATS their L10 games played on 0 days rest, 19-45-2 ATS their L66 games played vs. the NBA SW, 1-3-1 ATS their L5 games played at home, and 1-4-1 ATS their L6 games played overall. Take San Antonio. Thank you.
