Division opponents, the Los Angeles Clippers and the Phoenix Suns will meet for the fourth and final time of the 2016-17 season. The Clippers have won the first three meetings between these teams by an average of 13 points per contest.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers are at a fork in the road in the evolution of their team. This marks the sixth year in which the core of Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and Deandre Jordan have been teammates (it’s also the fourth with other key member JJ Redick).
During that time, the team is yet to make even a Western Conference Finals and the conference representative has been made up of three different teams during that span. In year six they once again find themselves with a good, but not great team that will surely come up short.
However, the presence of their core players moving forward could depend simply on their strength in this year’s playoffs. Win in the first round and give the Golden State Warriors a run and maybe they stick together.
But lose in the first round or get blown out in their second round matchup and this core very well may be broken up. That’s why every game of this regular season matters.
The team is currently sitting in the fifth seed, but only a game and a half out of the four seed and home court advantage in the first round. The Suns should be an easy win, but also a win that the Clippers need in order to make a successful playoff run.
The Phoenix Suns are not at a crossroads, in fact their path couldn’t be more defined if you wrote it on a mountain. The Suns recently trotted out a lineup that was younger than some college basketball teams in the tournament.
The team has five players under 21, three of which are lottery picks from the past two NBA drafts. One of those players gave them a Herculean effort this past week, Devin Booker, when he scored 70 points on 52.5% shooting.
And they currently have the third worst record in the league and are likely to choose another player to their core that is under 20. The patience for this Suns team is endless and expectations will be low for many years.
As such, the only thing they have to lose on Thursday against the Clippers is the game itself, but even then the loss will only bring them closer to another key piece to their infrastructure.
