Los Angeles Clippers vs Phoenix Suns: Prediction and Betting Tips

02:00, Jun 25 2021
Los Angeles Clippers vs Phoenix Suns prediction for Friday’s game three of the Western Conference finals clash at The Staples Center in Los Angeles. After falling behind 2-0 in the series, the Clippers will host the Suns in LA to try to tie the series. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

Can the Los Angeles Clippers come back for the third time?

For the third consecutive time in the playoffs, the LA Clippers find themselves trailing 2-0 in the series. Tyronn Lue’s team overcame the last two deficits against the Mavericks and the Jazz and they’ll be looking to do the same in the Staples Center in front of their fans.

The Clippers were so close to winning the second game. With 22 seconds to go and leading by a point, Paul George missed two free throws. On the next possession, the Suns scored with 0.9 seconds left and won the match. George made 5-10 free throws and just 1-8 three-pointers. 

Clippers Key Stats

  • The Clippers have scored 108 points on average in the series
  • 40% is the percentage of the Clippers from the arc
  • The field goal percentage of the Clippers in the series is 45%

Phoenix Suns looking for a tenth consecutive win

The big news for the Phoenix Suns is that Chris Paul might play in game three. That would change a lot in the Sun’s game plan as it would open up their shooters and take the load off Devin Booker who is taking the role of a point guard in Paul’s absence.

Booker had a tough night in game two. He had a nose injury and had to play the rest of the match with pieces of cotton in his nostrils. He was also guarded by Patrick Beverley who did a great job defensively and forced  Booker to make seven turnovers in the game and made five of his 16 shots from the field.

Suns Key Stats

  • The Suns have scored 112 points on average in the series
  • The field goal percentage of the Suns in the series is 52%
  • 32% is the Suns’ percentage from the arc in the series

Los Angeles Clippers vs Phoenix Suns Prediction

The Suns won their ninth consecutive game in the playoffs when they beat the Clippers in game two. Coach Williams will hope Chris Paul can play as that will be a great boost for his tactics.

Also, a lot depends on Devin Booker who scored 20 points in game two. If he can manage 30, the Suns will be with a great chance.

It is familiar territory for the Clippers to be down 2-0 in the series. Tyronn Lue will surely play Beverley on Booker defensively as he found the cure for that problem. The Clippers were so close to winning game two. With some small adjustments and better free throw shooting things can turn around LA’s way.

We think we will witness another close match as both teams are closing down each other defensively and the top scorers are suffering.
