Well it won’t be Suns In Four this time: in Thursday’s Duke Brotherhood Playoff action, the Clippers asserted themselves and won 106-92.
Chris Paul was back for Phoenix but it didn’t matter. He and backcourt mate Devin Booker were held to 10-40. and 3-14 from behind the line.
It was the Clippers’ night which was underscored by a 21-3 run in the second half. Even more impressive was that Phoenix got Paul back but LA is still without Kawhi Leonard. Given that LA should be up 2-1, they should be feeling pretty good about things.
Luke Kennard came off the bench for nine points on 2-5 from outside and 3-7 overall.
On Friday, the Hawks and Bucks move to Game 2 and we’ll see if Cam Reddish, who is back from injury, gets to play.
