It’ll be a battle between two of the top teams in the league Thursday as the Phoenix Suns (35-14) will make the short trip up north to take on the Los Angeles Clippers (38-12). Both teams have been playing great lately in their last 10 games with LA going 8-2 and Phoenix going 9-1 in the span.
Los Angeles won 2 straight games at home including a 133-116 win over Portland on Tuesday. Phoenix is currently on a 6 game winning streak after holding off Houston 133-130 on Monday.
These teams have only met once this season and it came back on January 3rd in Phoenix. The Clippers won on the road 112-107 as they were able to outshoot the Suns from deep 17/29 to their 10/33. Paul George exploded for a game high 39 points on 7/10 3PT shooting in the victory.
Los Angeles Clippers
Los Angeles has won 8 of their last 10 games which has been enough to hang onto the 3rd seed in the deep Western Conference. Despite their impressive record they only hold a 2 game lead from falling to the 6th spot.
The Clippers won at home Tuesday 133-16 against the 6th seed Portland. LA had a 7 point halftime lead and expanded upon it in the second half to win by 17 points. It was a two man tandem effort with Paul George scoring a game high 36 points and Kawhi Leonard finished with 29 points, 12 rebounds, and 7 assists to flirt with a triple-double.
Phoenix has quietly climbed to the top of the pack in the loaded Western Conference, boasting the leagues 2nd best record of 35-14. The only better record belongs to the Los Angeles Clippers but a win Thursday would help the Suns close the 2.5 game differential.
The Suns are winners of 6 straight games, most recently on Monday with a 133-130 road win in Houston. It was another lackluster defensive performance but they were able to do enough on offense to get the win.
Devin Booker dropped a game high 36 points with 6 rebounds and 6 assists. Former #1 pick Deandre Ayton recorded a monster 27 point and 11 rebound double-double in the winning effort.
Frank Kaminsky is out due to health and safety protocols while Abdel Nader will miss his ninth game due to a knee injury.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
This game will be a wire to wire showdown between the top two teams in the league. Both sides have been hot as of late and a win here could go a long way down the line with playoff positioning.
This game will be decided late and in that instance I like the ball in the hands of point god Chris Paul. He has been crucial in this teams development and where they sit today. His late game closing ability has swung many games in their favor this year and I see that happening here as well.
Suns to win at home and even the season series.
