Spurs look for faster start when they host Clippers

The old axiom of "it's not how you start, it's how you finish" has been one of the deciding factors for San Antonio this season, but the Spurs will be looking to get out of the gate with a little more giddy-up when they host the injury-depleted Los Angeles Clippers on Monday at the AT&T Center in San Antonio.

The Spurs head into Monday's game off a rousing 98-96 win over Dallas on Saturday in which they never led until Manu Ginobili's final basket on a running, left-handed layup with 3.1 seconds to play. San Antonio scored the final 13 points of the game to erase an 11-point deficit over the final 31/2 minutes.

The game-winning shot was Ginobili's second in a stretch of eight days (he also canned a 3-pointer at the buzzer to beat Boston on Dec. 9) and successfully brought San Antonio all the way back from a 14-point first-half deficit after another in a series of ragged starts by the Spurs (20-10).
