Here’s how sportsbooks have set the Clippers-Suns odds for Game 2.

Phoenix Suns -4.5 (-105)

Over 223 Points (-110)

Under 223 Points (-110)

Why The Clippers Could Cover The Spread
The running joke heading into Game 2 is that the Clippers are one loss away from having the Suns right where they want them. Twice in this postseason the Clippers have faced an 0-2 deficit, and twice they’ve recovered to win the series.

Obviously, Ty Lue’s group will be doing everything to even this series. However, they’ll play this one without pressure on their backs, which should help their shooters loosen up a little.

The Clippers’ offense depends on their 3-point shooting. Los Angeles held the highest 3-point shooting percentage in the regular season and is currently shooting 40.3% from deep in the playoffs.

Because of their dependency on the 3-pointer, the Clippers badly need their role players to hit their open shots, in particular Marcus Morris. When Morris hits at least three 3-pointers, the Clips are 4-1 this postseason. When he finishes under that total, L.A. is 4-5.
