Suns get the lead in series

After losing in Game 1, Phoenix beat the LA Clippers twice in a row to take the lead for the first time

Home » Suns get the lead in series

The Phoenix Suns lost the first game of the series against the Los Angeles Clippers at home. Now, they are compensating for this loss with a win on the road in Game 3. After beating LA 129-124 last night, the Suns managed to get the lead in the series for the first time.

It was a great game yesterday. Both teams played really well and the winner was decided in the last minutes. And Devin Booker set a new record. He is now the third player in NBA history to score 105+ points on 60+ FG% in the first three games of the playoffs. The other two players are Michal Jordan (1992) and Charles Barkley (1994). He is also the player with the most points in a game in the current Playoffs.

Both teams will now rest tonight and play again tomorrow, in Game 4. The match is taking place once again in Los Angeles and the Clippers need to make good use of their home advantage to tie the series before coming back to Phoenix in Game 5.
