Game 1 ended with the San Antonio Spurs controlling the entire game. Winning by double digits is something the Spurs are getting used to in these playoffs and they're making it look easy.
The Los Angeles Clippers, on the other hand, fought through a tough first-round series and now come in with a roster more banged up than they began the playoffs with.
When you look back at the first game of this series and see the Clippers lost by 16, you would think they played a horrible game.
But they shot 44 percent from the field and 47 percent from three-point land, making a total of nine.
They had more shots than the Spurs and less turnovers when the final buzzer sounded. Their defense—which has been plaguing them all season—came back to haunt them again.
They couldn't stop the "old," but well-oiled machine called the San Antonio Spurs.
Now, let's look at what the Clippers need to improve on to come out with a Game 2 victory.
