Los Angeles Clippers vs. Phoenix Suns
The Los Angeles Clippers look for revenge as they host the Phoenix Suns from Staples Center. The Clippers are -6 point favorites over the Suns with an over/under point total set at 196.
Head to head, the Suns are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The Clippers are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Suns on the other hand are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall.
With their 91-87 win over the Clippers a little under two weeks ago, Phoenix has now won four straight and nine of the past 10 meetings against Los Angeles. Despite the absence of Steve Nash and Grant Hill, the Suns stunned the Clippers with a 27-12 final quarter in the come from behind victory.
Although this is exactly the type of game that I would take the points with, I’m going with the Clippers here. After two straight double digit home victories, it looks like Los Angeles is starting to play to their potential. Meanwhile, the Suns are coming off a defeat last night against San Antonio and they have now lost three of their last five, although you can’t really fault them with losses at Miami and Orlando.
Phoenix did indeed win the last meeting, however had it not been for a Los Angeles crumble in the fourth quarter, the Clippers would have both win and covered. Bottom line, this is a good spot for LA to get their revenge tonight.
