What to watch for:

Can Los Angeles contend with San Antonio's depth

Spurs point guard Tony Parker hasn't shown up in this series as of yet, but that hasn't mattered for a San Antonion squad which enjoys a wealth of depth and talent up and down the roster. The Spurs' "next man up" philosophy gave Los Angeles fits in Game 3, as the top-heavy Clippers once again struggled to get impact contributions from players outside of their Big Three (Paul, Griffin, Jordan). Los Angeles will need to turn that around to tie this series back up on Sunday.

Prediction: Clippers win 110-107

The basketball gods want this series to go seven. This is the easiest way to ensure that as a solid possibility.
