A Western Conference First Round series may come to an end Tuesday night when the Los Angeles Clippers visit the Phoenix Suns. The Suns may be the most dangerous team in the NBA and with the Los Angeles injury problems this was never going to be a competitive series. Below is my NBA pick for the Clippers vs Suns.
Los Angeles Clippers vs Phoenix Suns Betting Pick
The Pick: Phoenix Suns -11.5 at Bookmaker
This game will be played at Footprint Center at 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 25, 2023.
Why Bet the Phoenix Suns:
✅ Phoenix playing well at the right time as they have won 10 of their last 13 games played.
✅ The Suns have been good at home and have won seven of their last nine games in Phoenix.
✅ Los Angeles has covered the spread in just six of their last nine games played.
Los Angeles Clippers Are the Same Story Every Season
The Clippers pulled off a surprising game one victory, but a game two loss coupled with Kawhi Leonard being injured, again, means this series is all but over. Los Angeles put up a fight in game four, but the Suns talent took over in the second half and now have control of this series.
The Clippers started off strong and led by seven points after the first quarter, but the Suns bounced back and led by one at the half. Los Angeles led most of the third quarter, but Phoenix closed strong, led by five after three and earned the double-digit victory.
Russell Westbrook is continuing to play well as he had 37 points, six rebounds and four assists in the game four loss. Norm Powell added 14 points and four rebounds on the day.
The Phoenix Suns Are Dangerous
Phoenix has not hit top gear yet and that could be dangerous for the rest of the Western Conference. The Suns should finish off the series on Tuesday and the rest is only going to help this team with aging superstars.
In the game four win, Kevin Durant went off for 31 points, 11 rebounds and six assists. Devin Booker continued his good series with 30 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and three steals.
