The Los Angeles Clippers and Phoenix Suns kick off the Western conference finals Sunday afternoon in Phoenix. The Clippers have reached this round with Kawhi Leonard potentially done for the rest of the season while Suns’ guard Chris Paul is in player safety protocols due to COVID.
Pick ATS: Suns -4.5
The Clippers shocked the Utah Jazz in two games without Leonard, but eventually his loss will be felt. Terance Mann isn’t likely to go 7-10 from deep again. The Suns are a balanced side and will be confident. They’re the pick despite Paul George playing well for LA.
Player Prop: Terance Mann over 1.5 3-pointers (+106)
Mann hit 7-10 shots from behind the arc in LA’s Game 6 victory and while he’s unlikely to shoot that percentage again, the volume should be there. Tyronn Lue is trusting him with more minutes due to his abilities on the defensive end, but Mann should be able to connect on a couple threes in Game 1.
