The Clippers are coming off a loss to the Dallas Mavericks, but they are a 2.5-point betting favorite tonight in the desert. The Suns have lost their last2 games and 3 of their last 4 and they already lost to the Clippers in L.A. earlier this season.
The Suns are 2-2 at home this season and the Clippers are 1-2 on the road.
In their last games the Suns lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 124-103 and the Clippers lost to the Dallas Mavericks 118-108.
After a 4-0 start the Clippers have lost 3 of their last 4 games.
The Clippers have won 8 straight games facing the Suns.
Blake Griffin has got off to a good start to the season averaging 27.6 ppg and in the earlier win over the Suns he went for 22 points and 10 boards.
In winning 8 straight over the Suns Griffin has averaged 26.4 ppg on 58.6% shooting.
Griffin and Chris Paul lead the Clippers, but 3rd leading scorer J.J Reddick was injured in the loss to Dallas and is questionable for tonight’s game.
L.A. has a high scoring offense, which ranks 3rd in the league in scoring, but they only rank 21st in opponents points allowed.
While Clippers C DeAndre Jordan is averaging over 10 boards per game and Griffin is averaging over 7 boards per game L.A. has yet to outrebound a team this season.
The Suns have had 3 days off since their loss to the Thunder where they committed 23 turnovers and allowed OKC to shoot 52.1% from the floor. They have to hold onto the rock, as in 2 of their last 3 games they have committed at least 20 turnovers.
The Suns are led by the G duo of Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight, who are combining to average 39.8 ppg.
Markieff Morris is the 3rd leading scorer for the Suns, but on the season he is only shooting 36% from the field. Off-season acquisition Tyson Chandler has not been playing well only averaging 7 ppg and 7.7 rpg.
It will be key that the Suns play solid on the inside facing Griffin and Jordan. Conversely Bledsoe and Knight have to have solid shooting games, which Bledsoe did in the OKC game while Knight did not.
the Suns rank 13th in the league in scoring and 19th in opponents points allowed.
