NBA Betting Pick and Prediction: Los Angeles Clippers vs. Phoenix Suns

January 8, 2024

The Phoenix Suns get set to take on the Los Angeles Clippers Monday night inside the crypto.com arena at Los Angeles, California. They tip it off late at 10:30 pm. The Clippers are on a nice little run of late, as they have ripped off five straight wins. 

Phoenix Suns Betting Preview

The Suns have won five out of the last six games overall as they entered action Sunday night against the Memphis Grizzlies. And they sit three games over .500 on the young season. They have shown resilience so far as they have rebounded from a three-game slide to put together this nice little run. 

On offense, they are led by the all-world Kevin Durant, who is netting 29 points per game to go along with just under seven rebounds a clip. He has shown he can still take over games at any moment and still can knock down open jump shots anywhere on the floor. He is also a player that is capable of getting his teammates into the mix. 

The Suns connect on 53% from the floor, including 37% from three-point land. They have a couple of solid shooters from that spot too, including veteran Eric Gordon who might not be available for the contest. He was listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Memphis. 

Los Angeles Clipper Betting Preview

The Clippers have had a nice start to the season and they sit ten games over .500. They have played well this season and they are hoping that all the veteran depth and scorers they have on the floor can finally push them deep into the playoffs. They are looking for their sixth straight win overall. They have started to also show they can play defense late in games. 

On the offensive side of the floor, they are led by Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, who are both scoring over 20 plus points for the Clippers, who have scored 100 points or more during this run. George is a great shooter and he can still knock em down from anywhere on the floor. 

The Clippers will try to push the pace in this one and see if they can hit the 100-plus point mark again. When they get out and running they really are a tough team to beat and keep up with.
