The LA Clippers are coming fresh off of a convincing victory over the New Orleans Pelicans and will be looking to mimic that performance against the Phoenix Suns. Their defense has been the highlight since the restart, having restricted both the teams they have faced to under 105 points. Additionally, the LA Clippers new found love for the 3 balls will create problems for the Phoenix Suns who have struggled to defend against shots behind the arc during the regular season.
With Lou Williams unlikely to play tomorrow’s match against the Phoenix Suns as he is still under quarantine, Reggie Jackson will have to provide the much-needed firepower and leadership off the bench as he had done against the New Orlean Pelicans. Additionally, the Phoenix Suns lack depth at the guard position and have struggled on the defensive end. Reggie Jackson’s quick pace will ease scoring in transition for the LA Clippers.
The Phoenix Suns have cruised through the NBA restart with a 2-0 record putting up impressive performances against the Dallas Mavericks and the Washington Wizards. Devin Booker, Ricky Rubio, and Deandre Ayton have been hitting every single note to perfection and are putting the team on their back to ensure that they make it to the promised land. The trio has made up for more than half of their points scored over their last two games and will continue to be a threat against the LA Clippers.
Devin Booker has been excelling in the bubble having averaged over 25 points while also averaging over four assists in the last two games. Throughout the season he has come up big in the clutch against big teams and has pulled the Phoenix Suns out of some sticky situations. His form is crucial to the success of the Phoenix Suns.
