NBA Odds: Suns vs. Clippers
|Time | Channel||9 p.m. ET | ESPN|
The Los Angeles Clippers are no strangers to being down 0-2. They are the first team in NBA history to come back from multiple 0-2 series deficits, so they certainly still believe in their ability to come back.
Paul George has done a great job in lifting the Clippers in the absence of Kawhi Leonard. George had 26 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists in a solid effort against the Suns, but his late-game gaffe — missing consecutive free throws with L.A. up one point — ended up costing his team.
George’s blunder led to the Suns’ now infamous “Valley Oop”— the incredible pass from Jae Crowder to DeAndre Ayton to give the Suns the win — that still has NBA fans buzzing.

It is clear that Phoenix will have the momentum heading into Thursday’s Game 3. They are coming off of a dramatic, emotional win, and they will be getting Chris Paul back in the starting lineup.
It will be a big test of the Clippers’ mental fortitude to see if they can respond early on Thursday night. With Phoenix’s leader back on the court, it will be tough to rattle this young team. Clippers coach Tyronn Lue will need the best version of “Playoff P” and for his role players to step up to stick with the Chris Paul-led Suns.
Despite Paul George looking confident throughout the postseason, sharp bettors are trusting the Suns to come out on top in Game 3. Let’s take a look in our latest PRO Report.
