April 10, 2024

The Los Angeles Clippers will face the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night inside crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California. The game will tip off at 10:30 p.m. and could be a wild one to watch. Both teams love to get up and down the floor and score, which could make this a wild game. This is the second meeting between the teams in two days. 

Los Angeles Clippers Betting Preview

The Clippers are a team like the veteran Suns that knows they are on borrowed time, and they need to make a deep push into the playoffs this season. They also know they are an aging team that believes their window of opportunity to win a title is closing. 

They have several big-time scorers and some veterans who are not shy when taking the big shot during crunch time. On offense, they are led by 

Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are netting over 25 a game this season. Leonard drops 23 a night, while George adds 22 a clip. The Suns connect on 52% from the floor, including 38.5% from beyond the arc. They are a team that can score from three-point land on any possession, but they prefer to get the ball into George's hands. 

He can still create off the dribble and make plays. They will need him to keep playing at a high level as the season ends. 

Phoenix Suns Betting Preview

The Suns have hung in there this season, and they are going to be a playoff team. However, they still know anything less than a trip to the Western Conference Finals would be a major disappointment. As they entered Tuesday night's action, they had won four out of six overall, and they would love to get a couple more wins to close out the season. 

They stepped on the floor Tuesday just four games back in the Pacific Division and can still catch the front-running Clippers. Kevin Durant is the face of the franchise, and the veteran can still score against some of the best players in the league. 

He is averaging close to 27.4 points per game and 6.7 rebounds a night. He can still carry the offensive load for the team, but he also knows he needs some help if they are going to make a deep push into the playoffs. If they can get some production from their bench and their guard play, they can be a dangerous team going forward. 

Shooting guard Devin Booker has played well, contributing 25 points a game and seven assists per contest.
