The LA Clippers and Phoenix Suns meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Footprint Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Clippers vs Suns prediction.

Los Angeles Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers have been in fine form as they’ve reeled off six wins in their past seven games overall and they will be gunning for a fourth straight win after outlasting the Cavaliers in a 120-118 home win on Sunday. Paul George led the team with 39 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists, James Harden added 22 points with five assists while Ivica Zubac and Norman Powell each scored 14 points. As a team, the Clippers shot 48 percent from the field and 14 of 35 from the 3-point line as they allowed 80 points in the first half to trail by as many as 26 points, before they dominated the second half to pull off one of their best comeback wins of the season. The Clippers will take on the Jazz after this b2b set against the Suns.

Phoenix Suns

Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns have been in solid form as they’ve won seven of their last 10 games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back after falling short to the Pelicans in a 113-105 loss on Sunday. Bradley Beal led the team with 33 points and five assists on 13 of 19 shooting, Devin Booker added 25 points with seven assists while Kevin Durant chipped in with 23 points and six assists. As a team, the Suns shot 44 percent from the field and 14 of 39 from the 3-point line to take an early 13-point lead, but they just couldn’t turn the tide once the Pelicans took control with a 37-point burst in the second quarter.

Phoenix Suns Team Facts

  • The Suns have won each of their last six games following a loss.
  • The Suns have failed to cover the spread in eight of their last nine night games against Pacific Division opponents that held a winning record.
  • Each of the Suns’ last six home games against Western Conference opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Los Angeles Clippers Team Facts

  • The Clippers have won each of their last seven games on the first leg of a back-to-back against the Suns.
  • The Clippers have covered the spread in each of their last seven road games following a home win.
  • Five of the Clippers’ last six games as underdogs following a home win have gone OVER the total points line.

Clippers vs Suns prediction

The Clippers are still shorthanded with Kawhi Leonard ruled out, and Daniel Theis listed as questionable, while the Suns are still keeping an eye on Jusuf Nurkic who is questionable once again. Both teams have been playing well lately, but the edge goes to the Clippers, who are really starting to look dangerous with Paul George starting to really heat up. I can see why the Suns are favored at home, but even though the Clippers are a little shorthanded, I can see them pulling off the upset in this one.
