Los Angeles Clippers vs Phoenix Suns Analysis

LA Clippers enter this game with a record 32-28. They are currently fifth in the Western Conference and 9 games behind first-place Nuggets. After missing so many games, Leonard began slow and took his time to get his legs under him. But now, he looks like Kawhi Leonard, who was the best all-around player in the league before getting injured. Leonard scored 33 points, had 7 rebounds, and provided 4 assists in Tuesday’s 134-124 victory over the Warriors. His average has increased to 22.3 points per match.

The Phoenix Suns are here, and they don’t have their best player yet. The Suns are beginning to look more like the team with the best record in the NBA. They have won five of their six last games and eleven of their 14 last contests. They are fourth in the Western Conference with a record of 32-27 and are just 8.5 games behind Denver. Everyone hears their footsteps. Devin Booker, the Suns’ first All NBA player, has been back after a long absence due to injury. After the all-star break, Kevin Durant, the Suns’ superstar player, will take the court for the Suns. He was traded to the Nets in a huge trade. The rest of the league needs to be terrified.
