Suns to Win on Moneyline
Although the Clippers have shown that they can win despite all of their injury problems and other issues, we believe that the Clippers vs Suns series are about to end in Game 6. The Suns are completely healthy and they’ve already won in Los Angeles earlier in the series, so they can certainly do it once more to avoid Game 7 and reach the NBA Finals. So, our first Clippers vs Suns prediction is for the Suns to win the game on moneyline.
Deandre Ayton Over 16.5 Total Points
The young center has been a beast in these playoffs, especially on the defensive end. However, he also contributes on offense and he was particularly efficient against the Clippers so far, which is why he is averaging 18.2 points in the series. The Clippers don’t have a center that could stop Ayton, although they did have some success in Game 5 when they went small and limited Ayton to just 10 points. Still, the Suns will likely make the necessary adjustments and we expect Ayton to, once again, take advantage of the Clippers and score at least 17 points.
Marcus Morris Sr. Over 13.5 Total Points
The experienced power forward did not have a huge role in these playoffs, but he is nonetheless an important piece of the Clippers’ rotation. Morris Sr. averages 9.4 points per game in these series, but he scored 22 points in Game 5 in which the Clippers went with a small lineup for the entire match. Since that has given results, the coach Tyron Lue will probably stick to smallball in Game 6, which should give Morris Sr. the opportunity to score at least 14 points.
Clippers vs Suns Game 6 preview – Will the Clippers take the series to Game 7?
Once again, the Clippers stay alive in these playoffs when it seems like they can’t. The Suns still have the lead, but Game 6 will be played in Los Angeles. So, let’s take a closer look at these two teams before Game 6:
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers have shown incredible resilience in these playoffs – they won the first two series after being down 2-0 in both of them, and now they’ve managed to get back into this series with an away win in Game 5. Of course, there’s still a lot of work to do if they are to reach their first-ever NBA Finals, but it’s clear that the Clippers will do their best in the next game, and in potential Game 7. Kawhi Leonard is still out with an injury, as is Serge Ibaka, while Ivica Zubac is listed as a game-time decision for Game 6.
The Suns didn’t take the first match ball in the series after they lost in Phoenix in Game 5. But the Suns still have two more chances to get that one win that will take them to the third NBA Finals in the franchise’s history. If they fail to do this in Los Angeles in Game 6, they will have another chance in Phoenix in Game 7. Luckily for them, the team is completely healthy and definitely ready for the challenge.
