The Los Angeles Clippers have lost three of their last four games but will be looking to right the ship against the Phoenix Suns in the desert Thursday. The good news for Clips backers is L.A. has historically performed well against Phoenix, winning nine straight outright games against the Arizona-based squad heading into the contest. Home court advantage hasn’t made much of a difference for Phoenix, as the Clips have also won five straight at Talking Stick Resort Arena.
- The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Suns’ last 17 games as underdogs.
- The Clippers are 6-0 ATS in their last six games with no days off.
- The Suns are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs Western Conference teams.
The Clippers will be an angry crew coming into the game thanks to a 118-108 loss to the Dallas Mavericks in Texas on Wednesday – their largest loss of the season. DeAndre Jordan is surely going to be happy to escape Dallas after enduring a hostile environment stemming from his brief free agent flirtation with the Mavs in the summer.
Phoenix (4-3 SU) is 3-4 ATS in their first seven games, while L.A. is 5-3 SU and 3-5 ATS in their opening eight games.
