As for Los Angeles, Los Angeles can't say they have nothing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving week. They escaped with a win against the Memphis Grizzlies by the margin of a single basket, 121-119. Los Angeles' success was spearheaded by the efforts of SG Lou Williams, who dropped a double-double on 24 points and 13 dimes, and PF Montrezl Harrell, who dropped a double-double on 24 points and ten boards.

Los Angeles' victory lifted them to 14-5 while San Antonio's defeat dropped them down to 6-13. Two stats to keep an eye on: San Antonio enters the matchup with only 19.3 fouls per game on average, good for fourth best in the league. On the other end of the spectrum, the Clippers are stumbling into the contest with the most fouls per game in the league, having accrued 24 on average. Keep an eye on whether or not foul trouble puts the Clippers in a difficult position.
