LA Clippers vs Phoenix Suns
Date and Time: Tuesday, June 22,2021 9:00 PM ET
Venue: Phoenix Suns Arena, Phoenix, AZ
Prediction: LA Clippers
The second round of the 2021 NBA Playoffs was full of stunning collapses and thrilling comeback wins. As the Western Conference Finals are set to begin Sunday afternoon, the Milwaukee Bucks’ opponent for the Eastern Conference Finals is yet to be determined. Philadelphia Sixers look to put away the No. 5 Atlanta Hawks after blowing big leads in Games 4 and 5.
The Bucks managed to overcome a 48-point performance and regulation buzzer beater by Kevin Durant in Game 7 on Saturday to defeat the Nets in overtime, 115-111, and advance to the conference finals.
Out West, the No. 4 L.A. Clippers outlasted the top-seeded Utah Jazz thanks to Terance Mann and a furious 25-point comeback in Game 7 on Friday night. Their opponent, the No. 2 Phoenix Suns, have had a full week of rest since sweeping the Denver Nuggets, but they will be without Chris Paul, who is out indefinitely due to health and safety protocols.
