Suns vs Clippers Prediction

Suns to Win on Spread (-4.5)

We expected the Clippers to win on the spread in Game 1, but the Suns didn’t agree with our prediction – although they covered the spread by just one point. Still, they did it and the Chris Paul’s absence was almost unnoticeable. Some of his playmaking duties have been covered by Booker, who ended with a triple-double, while the rest was masterfully done by Cameron Payne, who emerged as a very important piece of the puzzle for the Suns. After that performance in Game 1, our favorite Suns vs Clippers prediction for Game 2 is for the Suns to cover the spread once again.

Devin Booker Over 31.5 Total Points

One of the main stories of these playoffs is the young guard Devin Booker since he is averaging 29 points, 7.4 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game and he is leading the Suns towards the NBA Finals. While it’s clear that Chris Paul is the spiritual leader of this team, Booker is the close second and the best player on the team. After scoring 40 points in Game 1, we expect Booker to do something similar in Game 2 and score more than 31 points in the game.

Paul George Over 30.5 Total Points

It’s been a tough task for the Clippers to manage without Kawhi Leonard, but the team won two games against the Jazz without him and narrowly lost to the Suns. One of the reasons why they were able to do this lies in great performances by Paul George. In the three games without Leonard, George scored 37, 28, and 34 points and we expect him to score more than 30 once again in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.

Suns vs Clippers Game 2 preview – Can the Suns defend their home court again?

Winning Game 1 of the Conference Finals must feel so good for the Suns’ fans after years of mediocrity, but they surely hope for more. Can the Clippers spoil their party in Phoenix? Let’s check the teams out in more detail ahead of their upcoming duel:

Phoenix Suns

With the second-best record in the West, the Suns have been great in the regular season. However, their performances in the playoffs have surprised many, if not the players themselves. So far, the Suns have only lost two games in these playoffs, winning nine games in the process. Their last win was in Game 1 of the Suns vs Clippers series, which they managed to achieve without Chris Paul. Paul is still under the safety protocols after contracting coronavirus and he will miss Game 2 as well. So, Booker and the rest of the team will have to step up once again to make up for his absence.

Los Angeles Clippers

The Clippers managed to beat Utah Jazz in the semis after they lost Kawhi Leonard to a knee injury, but the Suns have proven to be a tougher nut to crack in Game 1 of the Conference Finals, even though they also had to play without Chris Paul. The situation for Game 2 is unchanged for both teams, which means that we won’t be seeing Leonard in this game either. The Clippers will also be without Serge Ibaka, while Marcus Morris is uncertain for the game with a banged knee despite not being on the team’s injury list.
