Los Angeles Clippers vs Phoenix Suns Betting Preview and Prediction | NBA Playoffs
NBA Western Conference Finals Playoffs Game 5 (PHO leads 3-1)
Los Angeles Clippers (47-25, 21-15 Away) vs. Phoenix Suns (51-21, 30-12 Home)
Date: Monday, June 28, 2021
Time: 9 pm EST
Venue: Phoenix Suns Arena – Phoenix, AZ
The Phoenix Suns got a tough road victory in Game 4 to claim a commanding 3-1 series lead. Teams with 3-1 series leads have gone on to go 52-4 in the overall series. The Suns have Deandre Ayton to thank for this gutsy road win.
Ayton, a former number one overall selection, finished the game with 19 points, 22 rebounds and four blocks. For a long time, Suns fans wondered if Ayton was worth such a high selection. Now, Suns fans are speculating as to how much money Ayton will be able to command when his contract is up and if the Suns will be able to afford him.
For the Los Angeles Clippers, it would appear all hope is lost. They needed to win Game 4 to win the series. With no hope of Kawhi Leonard returning and facing a close-out game in Phoenix, the Clippers will need a miracle to win this series.
