Suns and Clippers want the lead

After two games in Phoenix and one win for each team, the series is going to Los Angeles tonight

Home » Suns and Clippers want the lead

The third game of the night is the matchup between the Phoenix Suns and the Los Angeles Clippers, and both teams want to take the lead in the series. After the first two games, in Phoenix, each team got a win and now they will start the sequence of two games in LA.

In Game 1, the visitors took the advantage after a 115-110 win. And in Game 2 the home team made good use of the fans’ support to tie the series after a 123-109 win. Will the Suns win tonight and take the lead of the series for the first time or the Clippers will get the advantage back?

Kawhi Leonard has been the greatest name in the series so far, scoring 69 points in two games for the Clippers, but is not playing tonight. O the other side, Devin Booker is starting to rise and wants to keep his momentum, after scoring 38 points in Game 2 (and another 26 in Game 1, totalling 64).

Injury Report

The Los Angeles Clippers have two problems for the game. Paul George is dealing with a knee injury and is expected to miss the entire first-round, but the real problem is Kawhi Leonard, who is missing the game with a knee sprain. On the other side, the Phoenix Suns also have only one problem. Cameron Payne (back) is questionable for the game.


Even playing on the road, the Phoenix Suns are the favourites tonight by 7 points. The over/under is reasonable, set at 224.5 points. Kevin Durant and Devin Booker are having a great start in the series and could be great picks. Check out all the predictions for this game.
