Wednesday, April 28th finds the LA Clippers and Phoenix Suns playing in their third and final meeting this season. The Clippers won both prior games, the first on January 3rd (112 -107) and the second on April 8th (113-103).
The Suns hold the all-time record between the clubs with 132 wins in 226 meetings. Last season, the clubs played four times with each team winning two matches.
The Clippers had arguably been playing the best ball of the past few weeks but injuries could once again de route their current success.
Kawhi Leonard was already out dealing with foot soreness joining Serge Ibaka (back) and Patrick Beverley who had missed 23 and 10 games respectively.
Paul George may be joining them on the sidelines after he hurt his ankle in the Pelicans match. George stayed in the game but shot a poor 3 of 11 for nine points and didn’t play in the fourth quarter.
The daily NBA injury report doesn’t list George but five Clippers are on it. Nicolas Batum (shoulder strain) and Amir Coffey (tailbone contusion) are questionable.
Kawhi Leonard (foot) has missed four games and is doubtful to play versus the Suns. Patrick Beverley (left hand, fourth metacarpal fracture) and Serge Ibaka (lower back tightness) are out.
The Suns stopped a mini losing streak by ending the Knicks’ nine-game winning streak. Chris Paul and Devin Booker demonstrated the grit it takes to win the games that matter and sent a message to the league they aren’t going anywhere when the postseason hits.
Phoenix was happy to finish the road trip on the winning side (3-2) made more impressive considering it featured five of the top six Eastern Conference squads.
They’ve narrowed the gap to a single game between themselves and the Jazz for the top seed in the West. However, the Suns have the harder finishing schedule with six more games against teams seeded seventh or higher whereas the Jazz play only three.
Booker scored 33 against New York while Chris Paul provided 20 points, five rebounds, and six assists but was most effective in clutch time putting the game out of reach for the Knicks.
Mikal Bridges (20), Cameron Johnson (11), and Cameron Payne (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
Jae Crowder (ankle) missed the last three games while Dario Saric is dealing with an ankle injury both are listed as questionable for Wednesday. Abdel Nader (knee) remains out having missed the last 20 games after an arthroscopic procedure.

Free LA Clippers vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
This match has heavy seeding implications because the Clippers are only one game back of the Suns and come into this contest with the confidence of beating Phoenix twice already.
However, one of those games was the seventh match played this year and in the second Phoenix was on a back-to-back having played the Jazz the night prior.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Suns ATS
A win by the Suns would be of the statement variety and with the Clippers hobbled it increases the Suns’ chances.
