Los Angeles Clippers at Phoenix Suns (-4.5), Total: 224.5

Are the Clippers going to be staring at a 0-2 hole again?

The Clippers became the first team in NBA history to come back from an 0-2 deficit twice in the same postseason after beating the Utah Jazz in six games in the second round. If the Clippers lose on Tuesday night against the Suns, Los Angeles will need to come back for a third time if it wants to make the NBA Finals.

Neither team will have its most-recognizable player again on Tuesday. Chris Paul is out because of the NBA’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols for the Suns, and Kawhi Leonard didn’t travel to Phoenix after suffering a knee injury against Utah.

Phoenix has been nearly unbeatable at home recently. The Suns are 18-2 straight up in their last 20 home games. The Suns lost at home to the Lakers in Game 2 of their first-round series and lost at home to the Spurs on April 17. Those are Phoenix’s only two home losses since the middle of March.

Perhaps you should bet a Phoenix win with an over? The total has gone over in six of the last nine Clippers games. Game 1 easily went over in Phoenix’s 120-114 win. Yahoo Sports’ Jared Quay likes Phoenix to win again, though he’s taking Los Angeles to cover. He's not alone. The line moved 

“I do think [the Clippers] win this game, I just think six points is too much,” Quay said.

Prop bet we like: DeAndre Ayton over 15.5 points (+100)
