Los Angeles Clippers vs. Phoenix Suns.
27.06.2021. Stadium: Staples Center. (Los Angeles),
Game 4. The score in the series is 1-2.
Chris Paul returned to the court from covid-protocol in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals series. Surprisingly enough, his Phoenix lost, although, in Paul's absence, he took two games from the Clippers on their home court. The Californians are off to their third straight 0-2 start in this playoffs. Will they manage a comeback once again? Let's choose several options for betting on the 4th game of this interesting confrontation.
Clippers need two games to find the path to victory
Unbelievable things are happening to Tyronn Lue's team in this playoffs. The Clippers have lost the first two games of the series time after time, but have already set an NBA record. Never before in the history of the world's premier basketball league has a team gone through the first two rounds of the playoffs starting 0-2. Is this going to happen a third time?
So far, the series against the Suns is shaping up to be exactly like the standoffs against Dallas and Utah. The LAC could not get a win in Arizona, although it was very close in the second game, it should be noted. And after moving to L.A., they came away with a solid 106-92 victory. A working scheme!
Phoenix's first real test
The Suns literally flew into the conference finals, losing only two games ahead of their series with the LA Clippers. To be fair, it's fair to say that Phoenix hasn't been hampered at all so far. First, Monty Williams' team outscored the Lakers in 6 games, who not only took a gigantic amount of effort just to make the playoffs but also lost Anthony Davis to injury. As long as Davis was healthy, the Suns didn't have much of a chance. In the second round, the Arizona team literally swept the Denver Nuggets, who were completely unprepared for the playoffs, especially on defense, 4-0.
It turns out that for Phoenix, the West finals are really the first truly serious test. After starting without Chris Paul, the Suns were down 2-0 at home, but faced an insurmountable barrier from the California defense in their first game at Staples Center, albeit with Paul in the lineup. Would the Suns be able to invent an effective offensive response?
