Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Clippers: Prediction and Betting Tips
Phoenix Suns one game away from the finals
For the first time since 1993, the Phoenix Suns are one game away from reaching the NBA finals. After winning the first two matches in Phoenix, the Suns went to LA with aim of coming back with at least one win especially after getting Chris Paul back to play. And coach Monte Williams’ team did just that by beating the Clippers in game four.
It was one of the lowest-scoring games in the playoffs. The Suns made just 36% of their field goals. Tough defense from both teams was the main headline as both teams struggled to shoot especially from the arc. Booker, who scored 25 points nine of them from the free-throw line was 0-5 from downtown as his team made just 4-20.
Suns Key Stats
- The Suns are averaging 100 points per game in the series
- The average three-point shots of the Suns is 30%
- 9.7 is the number of turnovers made by the Suns in the series
Los Angeles Clippers need to be at their best to stay in the series
All the energy went to defense as the Los Angeles Clippers struggled offensively shooting just 32% from the field. They couldn’t have played badly at a worst time as they trailed by 14 points in the first half scoring just 16 points in the second quarter and hitting just one of their seven attempts from the arc.
Tyronn Lue should have had quite a pep talk during the half as his team outscored the Suns 30-19 in the third quarter. But things went back to as they are in the second when the Clippers started missing their shots again and managed only 14 points in the fourth quarter.
Clippers Key Stats
- The Clippers are averaging 100.8 points per game in the series
- The average three-point shot of the Clippers is 34%
- The field goal percentage of Clippers is 42% in the series
Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Clippers Prediction
In game three, we had predicted the score to be low since both teams are focusing more on defense and neutralizing the key players on their opponent’s side. We saw that being applied totally as both scorers Devin Booker and Paul George scored under 25 points.
With so much at stake in game five especially for the Clippers, we think the defense will dominate again and we might see another low-scoring game unless one of the teams collapses, in this case, that might be the Clippers as they have played 18 games in 36 days and fatigue will surely be a factor.
