The Los Angeles Clippers went into enemy territory on Monday and came out with a 116-102 victory. Paul George led the way for the Clippers, with 41 points, 13 rebounds, six assists and three steals. Marcus Morris Sr. came out of the gate red hot and scored 13 of his 22 points in the game’s opening minutes.
For the Phoenix Suns, the role players were simply shut down in Game 5. Jae Crowder only scored four points and Mikal Bridges only managed five points. Devin Booker and Chris Paul are good, but they still need the role players on the team to succeed. Deandre Ayton was aggressively average after his Game 4 explosion, finishing with 10 points and 11 rebounds.
The Suns may have held a 3-1 lead, but remember that this series could easily be 3-2 in the Clippers’ favor had they not lost Game 2 on a buzzer-beater. This series very well could go the distance.
