Suns Struggle Against the Clippers But Tend to Cover

The Phoenix Suns will roll into the Staples Center on Monday evening to take on the Clippers a night after giving the Golden State Warriors a serious run for their money. The Suns have not won a game yet but have covered twice in three tries, making their large spread against LAC tonight rather attractive.

SHARK BITES
  • The Suns are 2-9 in their last 11 games against the Clippers.
  • The Clippers are 5-0 in their last 5 games at home against the Suns.
  • The Suns are 3-1 against the spread in their last 4 games against the Clippers.

The young core of talented guards in Phoenix has been stellar to start the season and has given the Suns a chance in all but one of their games so far. Going back to last year, the Suns are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games after a loss, but the visiting team is 0-3 against the spread in the last three games in this matchup.

Los Angeles has won and covered in both its games to start the season and opened as nine-point favorites over the Suns. Both teams are coming off back-to-backs and the Clippers have a far deeper bench and much more veteran experience. Austin Rivers was huge off the bench for the Clip-show last night as he went 8-for-11 from the floor with a +12 rating and may be called upon again tonight in an expanded role against a guard-heavy Suns team.

The total for this game opened at 210.5 and four of the last six Suns-Clippers games have had more than 211 points. Tonight's game could easily turn into a 3-point shootout.
