Los Angeles Clippers vs Phoenix Suns: Prediction and Betting Tips
The Clippers showing incredible resilience as they bounce back in the series
The clippers are on course for a third seven-game series in the NBA playoffs this season as they saved their campaign by winning game five for the second time this season in the playoffs the first being against the Dallas Mavericks. Tyronn Lue corrected all the mistakes his team had done in the previous game as the Clippers played almost a perfect game.
Paul George had his best night in the playoffs by scoring 41 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. George was helped by Reggie Jackson and Marcus Morris who scored 22 and 23 points. Tyronn Lue’s team shot 54.8% from the field and made 93.3% of their free throws, two areas where they had suffered in earlier games.

Phoenix Suns miss the chance to finish the series in game five
From the start of game five, the Suns were not as aggressive as they were in the previous games. Probably they underestimated the Clippers and thought the LA outfit would not put up a fight. How wrong they were as they played too soft which let their opponents cruise to a 20-5 early lead.
Monty Williams was furious with his team as he tried to get them back in the game. After losing the first quarter by ten points, they won the second by three. Devin Booker’s 31 points and four of six three-pointers weren’t enough to keep up with the Clippers as the closest player to his tally was Chris Paul with 22 points who was 0-6 from the arc.
Suns Key Stats
- The average points scored by the Suns in the series is 100.3 points
- 45% is the average field goal percentage of the Suns

Los Angeles Clippers vs Phoenix Suns Prediction
It was a surprise win for the Clippers in game five as they were the underdogs. Tyronn Lue’s team proved this year that they never give up and fight no matter who the opposition is.
Game six will be another match in which the Clippers will have the chance to take the series to game seven and they have been experts in that this season.
We think the outcome of game six depends on the Clippers’ performance and how effective their players will be in their field goals. Thus we will bet on the Clippers’ total points in the match.
