The Clippers look to rebound from a primetime loss as they welcome in the lowly Phoenix Suns to the Staples Center on Monday night.
Los Angeles had a chance to really send a message, but fell to the Warriors by 3 on Saturday night.
As for the Suns, the wheels have completely fallen off as this team has dropped 11 in a row and traded away some key parts prior to the deadline.
The Suns were considered a playoff time early this season as they continued to put up fights against conference opponents.
However, this team has completely lost it and now they look to end an 11 game losing streak. The Suns do have a little something to build off of, as they gave the San Antonio Spurs all they could handle last time out.
Phoenix fell 118-111 to the Spurs, as once again defense was their major problem. On the season, the Suns have given up 109.4 points per game away from home.
While they did allow 118 points against San Antonio, Alex Len came back from injury and turned in a good performance.
Len finished with 23 points and 13 rebounds in just 24 minutes of game action.
With the Suns trading away some solid pieces, they have a rotation that features a lot of players that see minutes. Phoenix had 10 players play at least 18 minutes in Sunday’s loss.
The final score of Saturday nights loss to the Warriors doesn’t indicate how outplayed the Clippers were.
Los Angeles trailed from the outset and trailed by 16 points with just a few minutes left as the Warriors really packed it in. If the Clippers want to take away anything from Saturday, it’s that they didn’t give up.
Los Angeles went on a 13-0 run in just a matter of few minutes and actually had a chance to tie the game, but a shot fell short,as did they, in a 3 point defeat.
Los Angeles did escape the back to back gauntlet of games as they took on the top 2 teams in the West. The Clippers opened the 2nd half of the season with a route of the Spurs, before falling to the Warriors on Saturday.
From the looks of it, Los Angeles will likely have to go through Golden State first, then either the Spurs or Thunder come playoff time. While it is still early to convincingly say that, one thing is for sure….the Clippers need Griffin back.
It was evident they lacked an inside presence on Saturday.
The one bright spot for them in the paint has been DeAndre Jordan. While he hasn’t made an impact scoring, he’s averaged 18.8 rebounds over the past 4 games.

Free Phoenix Suns vs. L.A. Clippers NBA Prediction:
The Suns may have put up a fight against San Antonio, but this team just doesn’t have any sort of defensive stability.
Allowing nearly 110 points per road game isn’t quite the recipe for success. With them having a lot of minutes to their bench, this team can’t get any consistency from anyone on this team.
