Suns Seek to Clinch Against Clippers Tuesday for NBA Playoffs

Los Angeles Clippers vs Phoenix Suns 4/25/2023

Of major concern is a knee injury that can end the Clippers’ season.  Kawhi Leonard may be unable to play the rest of the series for LA.  His status is day-to-day.  When Leonard has been in the NBA betting lineup, he’s been the best player on the court.  But without Leonard, the Clippers have no answer for Phoenix star Devin Booker.  And that is why the Clippers are facing extinction on Tuesday night.  Phoenix finished the regular season strong.  And that has carried over to the postseason.

Clippers vs. Suns CashBet Wagering Analysis

So far, Kawhi Leonard has missed two of the first four games in this series.  Leonard’s best sportsbook online status is day-to-day, and he may not return.  The Suns can eliminate the Clippers with a home win on Tuesday night.  Casual betting action is flooding to the Suns.  Squares don’t want to step into Phoenix in this situation.  Especially with the unstable status of the Clippers lineup.

Clippers Face Extinction   

The LA Clippers have covered three out of their last nine games.  Additionally, the Clippers have gone under the total in one of its previous eight matchups.

Overall, LA ranks 18th for scoring offense, 13th for field goal percentage, 3rd for 3-point field goal percentage, 18th for free throw percentage, and 17th for offensive rebounding.  At the same time, the Clippers rank 12th for scoring defense, 16th for field goal percentage permitted, 19th for 3-point field goal percentage allowed, and 13th for defensive rebounding.

So far, in the 2023 NBA Playoffs, Kawhi Leonard leads the Clippers with 34.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 6.0 assists per game.  Also, Russell Westbrook adds 26.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 7.3 assists per game.  And then Norman Powell has been a Betting on NBA asset with 20.5 points per game.

Suns Rising Towards Second Round   

The Phoenix Suns have covered three out of their last five games.  Additionally, the Suns have gone under the total in one of its previous seven matchups.

Overall, Phoenix ranks 17th for scoring offense, 23rd for field goal percentage, 7th for 3-point field goal percentage, 10th for free throw percentage, and 11th for offensive rebounding.  At the same time, the Phoenix ranks 6th for scoring defense, 6th for field goal percentage permitted, 11th for 3-point field goal percentage allowed, and 11th for defensive rebounding.

Devin Booker leads the Suns with 34.6 points per game.  Also, Kevin Durant adds 27.8 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 6.6 assists per game.  And then Deandre Ayton is a pro basketball betting playoff asset with 14.8 points and 11.3 rebounds per contest.

Last Game – Suns Get Third Win in Strong Game 4 Performance at LA

Last Saturday, Phoenix’s big three of Kevin Durant, Devin Booker, and Chris Paul were all in top form.  As a result, the scrappy and shorthanded LA Clippers are on the verge of going home for the summer.  Durant scored 31 points, Booker added 30, and Paul bounced back big in the fourth quarter of a 112-100 victory over the Kawhi Leonard-less Clippers.  Hence, Phoenix has a commanding 3-1 lead in the first-round playoff series.

The Clippers, who lost Game 3 by five points, again made a strong run with Leonard watching from the bench.  He has missed two straight games with a sprained right knee.  Also, LA is without Paul George, who hasn’t played since March 21 because of the same injury as Leonard.
