The Clippers have slipped a bit, falling behind the Sacramento Kings for the 8th spot in the Western Conference. Granted, LA is just percentage points behind Sacramento and there’s nothing that will cure your ills like a visit from the Phoenix Suns.
The Suns have now dropped 14 games in a row, in a close race with the Knicks (17 straight) to see if either team will win again the rest of the season. Phoenix has not only been losing, but getting beat bad dropping 7 of 10 by double digits.
Phoenix has the talent to be much better than they are. Devin Booker returned to the lineup Sunday with a 27 point, 8 rebound, 6 assist contest vs. the Kings. Booker is averaging 24.9 ppg on the season and could have a big night vs. the Clippers 24th ranked scoring defense.
LAC has especially struggled to defend the post this season. That means a productive night should be looming for Suns C Deandre Ayton. The Phoenix big man was controlled by Sacramento (16 pts, 9 reb) but had posted 20+ point nights in the two games prior.
The other pieces that could possibly contribute to a Suns includes Kelly Oubre, Jr. He exploded for 25 points and 12 rebounds five days ago against Golden State and provides Phoenix with solid bench depth. Josh Jackson also has 18+ points the last five games which makes you wonder just how the Suns have failed to get a win in the last 14 contests?
The Suns have some scoring capabilities but the fact that they are just 11-47 is a testament just how bad the Phoenix defense is. The Suns rank 28th in scoring defense (115.8), 29th in field goal percent against (48.3), and 25th in opponents three point shooting.
Phoenix has allowed at least 116 points in 13 straight games. The Clippers also sport the #7 scoring offense in the NBA and are the league’s 2nd ranked team in terms of three point accuracy. LA just put up 120+ points in back-to-back games and is back home Wednesday for the first time in a couple weeks.
Los Angeles Clippers
Does a recent long road trip help or hurt the Clippers as the team plays their last game before the all-star break? LA has been on the road for the last six games and hasn’t played at the Staples Center yet in the month of February. The Clippers stayed afloat with a 3-3 record on the trip, especially impressive since the Clippers were underdogs in each outing.
The Clippers are 15-12 at home but the Suns are just 4-25 on the road. LA could be looking ahead to the all-star break but they do have the depth to get one more win over Phoenix.
About that depth, in Monday’s loss to Minnesota Lou Williams scored 45 points coming off the pine. Montrezl Harrell (18), Landry Shamet (15), and JaMychal Green (11) also had big contributions from the bench. Simply put Phoenix cannot match that kind of quality play from the 2nd string.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Suns are 1-4 ATS the last five road games
- Suns are 3-7 ATS the last 10 road games
- Clippers are 1-6 ATS the last 7 home games
- Suns are 0-6 ATS the last six in LA
Free Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction:
Phoenix has gone 0-3 vs. the Clippers so far this season although they haven’t played horrible. Those three defeats came by 10, 4(OT), and 10 which isn’t bad by the Suns’ standards. It’s hard to tell the boost, if any, that LA is going to get being back home for the first time in two weeks.
If you think LA is looking ahead to some time off, how do the Suns feel? Phoenix has a long grind of beatings ahead of them the rest of the year so they’ll be looking forward to a break.
