What you need to know about the Clippers

Los Angeles came up short against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday, falling 101-94. Point guard Reggie Jackson wasn't much of a difference maker for Los Angeles; Jackson finished with only seven points on 3-for-14 shooting in his 25 minutes on the court. Jackson is averaging 16.1 points per game this season, but he's struggled with his shot in his most recent outings. In fact, Jackson has scored 13 points or less in five of his last seven games. 

The Clippers are averaging just 104.1 points per game this season, which ranks 27th in the NBA. Defensively, Los Angeles ranks eighth in the league, giving up 105.4 points per game on average. 

What you need to know about the Pacers

Meanwhile, the game between Indiana and the Phoenix Suns this past Friday was not particularly close, with Indiana falling 112-94. Despite the loss, the Pacers got a solid performance out of small forward Justin Holiday, who shot 7-for-14 from beyond the arc and finished with 25 points and three blocks. 

Domantas Sabonis also had a strong showing in the loss, recording 14 points and 14 rebounds. For the season, Sabonis is averaging 18.9 points, 11.9 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game.
