The Clippers' total dismantling of the woebegone Lakers on Thursday elicited all sorts of responses about the talent on this Clippers team. Just listen to what basketball Hall of Famer and TNT analyst Charles Barkley had to say about who are the best teams in the West. "The two best teams in the Western Conference are the Los Angeles Clippers and the Oklahoma City Thunder…in that order," Barkley said Thursday night during the telecast of the Clippers-Lakers game. Indeed, the Clippers are playing their best basketball of the season, producing a season-best six-game winning streak.

Meet the new San Antonio Spurs -- same as the old San Antonio Spurs now that the team has come to terms with veteran guard Manu Ginobili and somewhat-improving center Tiago Splitter. The Argentine stars have reportedly agreed to two- and four-year contracts, respectively, leaving the Spurs with basically the same nucleus that was good enough to win the Western Conference but not quite up to the task of dethroning LeBron James and the Miami Heat as NBA champions. Despite an aging roster, the Spurs appear content to bring back the shooting guard who turns 36 this month to again play alongside power forward Tim Duncan (37)

Writers from around the Tribune Co. offer their predictions on whether the San Antonio Spurs can defeat the defending champion Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. Please join the conversation by voting in the poll and leaving a comment of your own. Ben Bolch, Los Angeles Times Yes. The Spurs are a more complete, cohesive and consistent team. They don't sell as many jerseys or generate as many Twitter followers (in social media holdout Tim Duncan's case, zero). The Spurs just win while sending opponents to the loony bin with their methodical playmaking.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - It was a promise made by one future Hall of Famer to another. The San Antonio Spurs would get back to the NBA Finals, Tony Parker assured Tim Duncan last year amid another season that fell short of the franchise's championship expectations. Parker made sure of it Monday night at FedEx Forum, shrugging off a poke to the eye to deliver a game-long smackdown during the Spurs' sweep-sealing 93-86 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals.

MIAMI - It truly is a case in which you can throw out the previous games between the teams. The Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs will meet in the NBA Finals, but don't expect the series to resemble their two games during the regular season. In fact, Thursday's series opener is the first time both teams will play one another at full strength. "It's crazy that it worked out this way, that we are both in the Finals," Heat guard Dwyane Wade said. What's even crazier is how their regular-season series played out. The teams were supposed to meet in a star-studded, nationally televised game in late November.

  SAN ANTONIO - In their first full game without the injured Chris Paul, the Clippers lost, 116-92, to the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night at the AT&T Center. It was a game in which the Clippers found out how tough life could be without Paul, who suffered a separated right shoulder Friday night in Dallas that will sideline him for three to five weeks. "Probably a good lesson for us. Without CP, you're not going to dance around with the ball and make things magical happen," Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said.

The Clippers have to improve on the road. They are 8-9 away from Staples Center this season, having lost three of their last four road games. They did keep it close in losses last week at Golden State on Christmas and at Portland on Dec. 26, but they know that the NBA's elite teams win even when they are not the home team. “We have to play better on the road,” Coach Doc Rivers said recently. “I know we were great and it was close [at Golden State and Portland], but we have to win games on the road.” The Clippers will get another opportunity this weekend as visitors against two tough opponents.
