The Los Angeles Clippers and Phoenix Suns meet Sunday in NBA action at the Footprint Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 113.2 points on 47.7 percent shooting and allowing 112.9 points on 47.4 percent shooting. Paul George is averaging 23.8 points and 6.1 rebounds, while Kawhi Leonard is averaging 23.7 points and 6.3 rebounds. Norman Powell is the third double-digit scorer and Russell Westbrook is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 38.3 percent from beyond the arc and 78.1 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 36.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43 rebounds per game.

The Phoenix Suns are averaging 113.7 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 111.3 points on 46.4 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 28 points and 5.5 assists, while Kevin Durant is averaging 25.6 points and 6.3 rebounds. Deandre Ayton is the third double-digit scorer and Chris Paul is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 37.5 percent from beyond the arc and 79.3 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 35.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.3 rebounds per game.

The Suns are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games. The over is 6-1 in Clippers last 7 overall. The over is 12-5-1 in Suns last 18 overall. The Clippers are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Phoenix. The under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.

The Los Angeles Clippers are still playing for seeding, so I'm assuming they're going to play their starters. The Phoenix Suns have nothing to play for as they're locked into their seed, so I'd expect backups. Still, this is a huge line for a road team, and we did see the Suns backups give the Lakers trouble a couple of days ago. The Clippers win as favorites by an average of 4 points. Big line. I'll take a shot with the Suns.
