Los Angeles Clippers vs Phoenix Suns prediction

Right when it looks like the Phoenix Suns are starting to find their footing, Durant is sitting out with a hamstring injury. We've seen the Suns have issues all year when one of their key players is out. The Los Angeles Clippers continue to play their best ball of the season, and there's not a single player on their injury list. The Clippers are heading in the right direction, and they've covered 7 of their last 10 games. I'll lay the bucket with the healthy Clippers given the Durant news.
