Clippers vs Suns Preview
The new-look, Kawhi Leonard led Clippers have been the most impressive squad of the season so far, taking down a pair of their biggest rivals to open up the year. First they throttled LeBron James and the Lakers and followed it up by blowing up Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors.
“We wanted to kind of beat them down,” guard Patrick Beverley said after the Clippers beat the Warriors 141-122. “Beat them down, beat them down, beat them down to the point that, it was me, Mo [Maurice Harkless], of course Kawhi [Leonard], [Landry Shamet] did a helluva job. We just kept putting bodies on them trying to make it as tough as possible.”
With Paul George still on the sideline due to offseason shoulder surgery, Leonard has taken the reins as the teams unquestioned leader, firmly taking his place atop the NBA hierarchy. He has 51 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds while averaging only 26.5 minutes through the team’s first two games.
“It just shows the trust he has in his teammates,” Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said of Leonard’s willingness to share the ball. “You love that. I thought he started it doing about the second round (of the playoffs) last year. In the first round he was just dominating. As each round went on, he started playmaking more and more.
“What he’s doing with us is even another level. You can tell that is something he focused on over the summer.”
The Suns were projected to be one of the worst teams in the league, but have been surprisingly solid with an infusion of veteran talent helping guide a youth movement. Phoenix obliterated the Kings 124-95 in their opener, and nearly pulled off a stunner against Denver before falling in OT, 108-107.
“We fought hard all night,” Booker said. “Couple of things we need to clean up on, but we faced adversity tonight and we responded well to it.”
Already without center Deandre Ayton — who was suspended for violating the terms of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program after testing positive for a diuretic — Ricky Rubio, Aron Baynes and Kelly Oubre Jr. all fouled out in OT.
“We know things are going to happen, so when your name’s called up you’ve got to perform,” Rubio said.
The Clippers are 9-point road favorites, with a total of 229.5 posted. The Clippers have won the last 12 against the Suns, including the last three by double-digits.
