The Spurs have come back down to Earth since last month's eleven-game winning streak. The Clipper backcourt of Mo Williams and Chris Paul hung 69-points on the Spurs in their loss Friday—the first Clip win in San Antonio in over a decade. Tony Parker's thigh injury seems to be less serious than originally suspected and Manu Ginobili looked comfortable offensively scoring 22-points against CP3 and Friends. Both good signs if the Spurs expect to hold rank as one of the best teams in the West. —Sean Evans
