When the San Antonio Spurs begin their second round action against the Los Angeles Clippers, all eyes will be on the all-world point guard matchup of Tony Parker and Chris Paul. Spurs fans may recall Paul's dynamic performance against the Spurs as a member of the New Orleans Hornets during the 2008 Western Conference semifinals. After facing an 0-2 hole, the Spurs responded, winning four of the final five games.
This season, both Parker and Paul finished in the top-five for the NBA's MVP voting with Parker receiving four first-place votes while Paul received six.
The Spurs-Clippers tip off at 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at the AT&T Center.
