Suns hosting Clippers for redemption

Phoenix lost the first game and need to take advantage of the home factor to tie the series versus LA

Home » Suns hosting Clippers for redemption

Wrapping up the coverage of the NBA Playoff games this Tuesday, we have Game 2 between the Phoenix Suns and the Los Angeles Clippers. After losing the first game, the Suns are hosting the Clippers looking for redemption tonight, trying to win the game, even the series, and avoid being swept.

In the first game, Phoenix didn’t play their best game. It doesn’t mean it was a bad game, only that they can do better. Especially in the first quarter as they basically started the game trailing by 12 points. After winning the two next periods, the Suns even tied the game in 81. But the Clippers had another quarter in the fourth period and won Game 1.

Kawhi Leonard had a hell of a game for the Clippers with 38 points and LA fans expect nothing less tonight. On the other side, the Suns need more from their star players. And Kevin Durant finished the game only one rebound away from a triple-double.

Injury Report

Trying to tie the series, the Phoenix Suns have only one problem for the game. Cameron Payne (back) is questionable for the game. On the other side, the Clippers won’t have Paul George, who is expected to miss the whole First Round series with a knee injury.


Even after losing the first game, the Phoenix Suns are the favourites tonight, by 8.5 points. The over/under is set at 227.5 points, which seems reasonable based on the first game and in both teams’ averages during the season.

After scoring 38 points last game, the points line for Kawhi Leonard is at 28.5, with 1.86 odds. He has also an average of two three-pointers made per game, and the odds for him having over 2.5 threes is at 2.10. Check out the best predictions for tonight, including the high odd one at the end.

  • LA Clippers +8.5 (1.90)
  • Over 227.5 points (1.90)
  • Kawhi Leonard over 28.5 points (1.86)
  • Kawhi Leonard over 2.5 three-pointers made (2.10)
  • Russell Westbrook has a double-double (2.60)
  • Chris Paul has a double-double (2.35)
  • Kevin Durant has a double-double (3.10)
