LA Clippers vs Phoenix Suns game 6 prediction
Paul George and the Clippers bench have overachieved in this postseason. They were not expected to win the second round after Kawhi Leonard was injured. However, the LA Clippers rallied to now win 2 games after being down 2-0. The Clippers avoided being eliminated on the road and forced a game 6. The Clippers have a good chance to win game 6 at home tomorrow.
Paul George has proven that he is an elite player in this league, fully capable of carrying a team. He is expected to do so tomorrow as well. The Clippers are expected to win game 6 at home and force a game 7.
Reggie Jackson was traded to the Clippers from the Detroit Pistons. He has proven to be the trade the Clippers needed. However, losing Kawhi is still a void that will hurt the Clippers when they need him the most. Additionally, losing Kawhi means throwing bench players into the starting lineup in crucial postseason games. Devin Booker and Chris Paul will prove to be too much for the Clippers to handle.
Kawhi Leonard scored 28 PTS 10 RBD and 9 AST in game 7 vs the Mavs. Additionally, he did so while being ridiculously efficient. Therefore unless the Clippers bench and staters manage to fill this void, the Clippers will not win this series let alone an NBA championship.
The Clippers are favored to win game 6 and force a game 7 against the Phoenix Suns.
