The Clippers are off to a solid start winning their first 2 games. They played great defense in their last game beating the Utah Jazz 88-75.
While the Clippers have been solid the same cannot be said about the Suns, who have lost their first 3 games. They lost by double digits in their first 2 games, but only lost by 6 in their 106-100 loss to the Golden State Warriors in their last game.
These teams split the 4 games facing each other last season with each winning twice on their home floor.
Early in the season the Suns rank 17th in the league in points per game and only 27th in opponents’ points per game.
The Suns played pretty good D in their loss to the Warriors, but they only shot 41.1% from the floor. In the game T.J Warren and Eric Bledsoe combined for 47 points, but no other player scored in double figures.
Warren leads the team averaging 23.3 ppg and with him at small forward and the other 3 players that averaging in double figures being guards Pheonix does not have a lot of inside scoring.
Devon Booker and Brandon Knights are both averaging in double figures, but neither is shooting over 39% from the floor. These guys need to shoot the rock well and take the pressure off Bledsoe and Warren
C Tyson Chandler is averaging 12.7 boards per game and he will need help down low in this game facing DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin.
The Suns have only played 1 road game this season and last season they were only 9-32 on the road.
The Clippers rank tied for 18th in the league in points per game and 2nd in opponents’ points per game.
The Clip Joint did not have a good shooting game in their last one facing the Jazz, but they held Utah to a FG% of 39.7%.
Blake Griffin was the only starter to score in double figures in the Jazz game, but the bench players of Austin Rivers and Jamaal Crawford stepped up to combine for 31 points.
Jordan is averaging 14 boards per game and Griffin is averaging 11.5 boards per game and the Suns frontcourt players will have their hands full in this Western Conference match up.
After going for 27 points in the season opener Chris Paul struggled in the Jazz game only scoring 9 points on 3/8 shooting.
He and the guards have to play solid perimeter D in this game and if they can do that and hold the Suns to a low FG% they will easily win with the lack of frontcourt scoring for Phoenix.
Last season the Clippers were 29-12 at home and they have won their only home game this season.
