The Clippers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Monday games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Suns are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Clippers last 6 overall. The under is 5-2 in Suns last 7 overall. The Clippers are 16-7 ATS in the last 23 meetings.

The Clippers have been in all three of their losses this series and probably could have a different outcome if they knew how to make free throws down the stretch. The Clippers also play their best ball with their backs against the wall. It wouldn't be surprising if they found a way to extend this series. With that said, the Suns have been too consistent and too poised to bet against in these playoffs. In clutch situations, the Suns just find ways to get it done and they're easy to trust. Expect CP3 to close the deal on his first ever final appearance. I'll lay the reasonable chalk.
