LA Clippers vs Phoenix Suns Preview and Predictions -02-26-2020
The Los Angeles Clippers will look to add to their blowout win against Memphis when they travel to Phoenix on Wednesday night. Los Angeles is 38-19 on the season and snapped a three-game losing skid with Monday’s win. Phoenix has won three of its last four games to improve to 24-34 overall.
Clippers coming off monstrous win
Los Angeles wasted no time in bouncing back from its three-game losing skid. The Clippers jumped out to a 40-14 lead at the end of the first quarter as 11-point home favorites against Memphis on Monday. They also outscored the Grizzlies in the second and fourth quarter en route to a decisive 124-97 victory. Los Angeles has won nine of its last 10 games against Phoenix. The Clippers are one game behind Denver for second place in the Western Conference, but they trail the Lakers by six games for the top spot.
Superstar Kawhi Leonard leads Los Angeles with 27.2 points per game and 7.5 rebounds per game. He has also done a good job as a facilitator, dishing out 5.2 assists per contest. Leonard has made 93 of 249 attempts from beyond the arc. Forward Paul George is scoring 21.3 points per game and is grabbing 6.0 rebounds per game. He has been the best 3-point shooter on the team, making 112 of 287 attempts from beyond the arc. Veteran guard Lou Williams is once again in the conversation for the Sixth Man of the Year award, scoring 19.4 points per game.
Suns sneaking into playoff conversation
Phoenix has won three of its last four games and is now just 4.5 games back of the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference. The Suns’ recent wins have come against Golden State, Chicago and Utah. They were 6.5-point favorites against the Warriors and 3-point favorites against the Bulls. Monday night’s 131-111 road win came in surprising fashion, as Phoenix was an 8.5-point underdog. The Suns outscored the Jazz by a tally of 66-42 in the paint. Wednesday night’s game kicks off a six-game homestand for Phoenix.
Devin Booker leads Phoenix with 26.3 points per game and 4.2 rebounds per game. Like Leonard, Booker is an excellent distributor. He is dishing out 6.4 assists per contest. Booker has made 109 of 301 attempts from beyond the arc. Center Deandre Ayton is scoring 18.9 points per game and is completing his double-double average with 11.9 rebounds per game. Forward Kelly Oubre Jr. is scoring 18.7 points per game and is grabbing 6.4 rebounds per contest. Guard Ricky Rubio is scoring 12.6 points per game and is dishing out a team-high 8.7 assists per outing.

LA Clippers Live Stream On Youpit Network
The Los Angeles Clippers (branded as the LA Clippers) are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles. The Clippers compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member of Pacific Division of the league’s Western Conference. The Clippers play their home games at the Staples Center, an arena they share with fellow NBA team the Los Angeles Lakers, as well as the Los Angeles Sparks of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA), and the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL).
The franchise was founded in 1970 as the Buffalo Braves, and were one of three expansion teams to join the NBA that year, along with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Portland Trail Blazers. The Braves saw some success and reached the playoffs three times, led by league Most Valuable Player (MVP) Bob McAdoo. Conflicts with the Canisius Golden Griffins over the Buffalo Memorial Auditorium and the sale of the franchise led to them relocating from Buffalo, New York, to San Diego, California.
In 1978, upon relocating, the franchise was rebranded to be known as the San Diego Clippers, in reference to the sailing ships synonymous with San Diego Bay. The franchise saw limited success on the court in its six years in San Diego despite the acquisition of star center Bill Walton, who missed nearly three full seasons due to injury upon his arrival. In 1981, the franchise was acquired by Los Angeles-based real estate mogul, Donald Sterling.
In 1984, the franchise was controversially relocated to Los Angeles by Sterling without the approval of the NBA. Despite fines and a lawsuit brought on against franchise ownership by the NBA seeking to return the franchise to San Diego, the team was ultimately permitted to remain in Los Angeles, where they failed to see significant regular season or playoff success. They were frequently seen as an example of a perennial loser in American professional sports, drawing unfavorable comparisons to their historically successful city-rivals, the Lakers.
Between 2008 and 2017, the organization improved through the additions of players such as Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, and Chris Paul. This lineup led the Clippers as a consistent playoff team and were nicknamed “Lob City”. In the 2012–13 and 2013–14 seasons, the franchise won its first division titles. They appeared in the playoffs seven times from 2012 to 2019, equaling the number of appearances for the franchise from 1970 to 2011.
In 2019, the Clippers signed two-time NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Kawhi Leonard and traded a record number of draft picks for perennial NBA All-Star Paul George.
