The Clippers trail the Suns by a game in the Western Conference’s Pacific Division standings, six games into the scheduled 72.
This will be the first meeting of the season between the two teams. It won’t be one of the increasingly common doubleheaders and both teams will have at least a day off before and after.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers dropped to 4–2 with a six-point loss at Utah on Friday night.
Kawhi Leonard and Paul George combined to shoot 14-of-41 (31%) from the field for 45 points. Leonard was particularly active in other aspects of the game, however, grabbing 16 rebounds and recording nine assists.
Nicolas Batum continued his streak of starting every game this season for his new team and played heavy minutes again.
The former Blazer and Hornet failed to get an assist for the first time this season after putting up 17 in his first five games. He has been a pleasant surprise for Clipper fans so far.
The Suns have started by winning five of their first six games. Their only defeat came to the Kings, whom they paid back the next time out.
As poorly as Oklahoma City has started without its starting point guard from a year ago, the Suns have improved. Maybe Chris Paul really is that good. He had another 21 and six in a 106–103 victory over Denver on Friday.
Paul’s presence has worked wonders for the development of Phoenix’s two young wings: Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson.
First round picks in 2018 and 2019, respectively, Bridges and Johnson are scoring nearly 30 points combined.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction: the Clippers win and cover.
The Suns are not to be taken lightly, even in Vegas.
But the Clippers, for all their growing pains, are too enticing to pass up as minor road favorites.
A day off on either side of this one should ensure Leonard and George both play. They are still developing chemistry together so these games are important. Head Coach Ty Lue will stress as much.
With Patrick Beverley hounding Paul and the Clippers’ vets getting the best of Phoenix’s upstarts, LA pulls even in the standings.
