Clippers vs Suns prediction

The Clippers are looking to lock up a top-4 seed in the West, while the Suns hope to stay out of the play-in tournament. The Clippers have a questionable Kawhi and Theis while the Suns are nearly completely healthy. The Suns should be favored at home. However, the Suns run hot and cold, and they've had these games lately where the offense doesn't show up. The Clippers beat the Suns twice in January, which includes topping 130 points in both games. The Clippers are coming off that massive comeback over the Cavs which is a major confidence boost. I'll take a stab with the Clippers and the free points.
