Who’s Playing

Phoenix @ Los Angeles

Regular Season Records: Phoenix 2-0; Los Angeles 0-2

What to Know

The Phoenix Suns have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will face off against the Los Angeles Clippers in a playoff game at Staples Center at 9 p.m. ET on Thursday. Phoenix should still be riding high after a win, while Los Angeles will be looking to get back in the win column.

The Clippers are out to make up for these teams’ matchup on Tuesday. The Suns escaped with a win by the margin of a single free throw, 104-103. They can attribute much of their success to point guard Cameron Payne, who had 29 points and nine assists.

Phoenix is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the San Antonio Spurs April 17 easily too and instead slipped up with a 111-85. In other words, don’t count Los Angeles out just yet.
