The emergence of Blake Griffin has completely turned around the Los Angeles Clippers franchise. Since his breakout rookie season, the Clippers have put up a winning percentage of .673, making the playoffs in each of those four years.
Despite all of that success, the team has not managed to reel off four consecutive victories to start off a campaign in that time. They’ll have a good chance to do so on Monday night when they host a Phoenix Suns team that they’ve beaten in each of the last seven meetings between the squads.
The Suns have been pushed by their backcourt in recent years, and that’s no different this season. Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight are each averaging better than 20 points. Bledsoe had 33 points, six assists, four steals, and two blocks in Saturday’s 101-90 win over the Portland Trail Blazers, while Knight chipped in 27 points, five assists, and five rebounds.
The Suns’ big free agent acquisition this past offseason, Tyson Chandler, who joined the club on a four-year, $52-million pact signed in July, had 15 points and 13 rebounds against the Trail Blazers.
Los Angeles Clippers:
Griffin’s been the story for the Clippers in the early going. He’s averaging 32.0 points on 64.4 percent shooting in helping the team to wins in each of its first three games. He put up 37 points to go along with nine rebounds in Saturday’s 114-109 victory over the Sacramento Kings at the Staples Center.
He figures to be able to continue his success on Monday against the Suns. In the last six meetings between the Clippers and Suns, Griffin is averaging 27.8 points on 61.0 percent shooting. The last time these teams met at the Staples Center – Dec. 8, 2014 – Griffin scored 45 points in a 121-120 victory.
NBA Betting Trends:
The Suns are 14-3 ATS in their last 17 games following a win of more than 10 points.
The Suns are 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine games against Western Conference opponents.
The Clippers are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 home games.

Free NBA Prediction:
A lot has gone right for the Clippers this season, and while there’s no reason to expect the team to fall off a cliff, they’re bound to meet some resistance, and the Suns are going to give them some trouble with their highly effective backcourt.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Suns +9
While many have been quick to write off the Suns as a lottery team this season, they didn’t add Chandler with thoughts of missing out on the postseason. This is a good Suns team that’s going to provide value to bettors until the market catches up.
