LA Clippers vs Phoenix Suns
Date and Time: Thursday, June 24,2021 6:00 PM
Venue: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
Prediction: LA Clippers
The Phoenix Suns will look to defend their home court against the LA Clippers when the two sides meet for Game 3 of their Conference Finals series on Thursday.
Devin Booker led the charge for the Phoenix Suns with his maiden career triple-double, tallying 40 points, 11 assists and a career-high 13 rebounds on the night. Meanwhile, Paul George was the LA Clippers’ MVP, contributing a team-high 34 points.
As expected, the two stars put on a show in the absence of their respective team’s alphas, Chris Paul (Phoenix Suns) and Kawhi Leonard (LA Clippers). Paul is currently under the league’s health and safety protocols while Leonard is recovering from a knee injury.
The LA Clippers have proven time and again that they are a great side when it comes to making adjustments. With that being said, the LA Clippers could emerge as winners in Game 3, especially considering the kind of fight they put up in the last match. But they are favorites by a slender margin.
The Phoenix Suns have been one of the best teams to make in-game adjustments throughout the 2021 NBA playoffs. There is no reason to believe they aren’t capable of winning Game 3 either, though, which makes this an enticing affair to watch out for.
