Paul George scored 33 of seven to three to lead the Clippers to a 113-103 win over Phoenix

The game started at the end of the last fight between these two teams, with George scoring and scoring and scoring more He made two first lines and got into a good rhythm, although the Suns were able to keep pace

As Patrick Beverley started the game on Devin Booker, his main defender ended up being Kawhi Leonard most of the night It’s not something I expected to see the Clippers go so consistently in this game, but it fits with something else that became evident when watching this game – that the Clippers wanted to send a message

Much like Utah on Wednesday night, the Clips brought their A game and were clearly playing to win and gain ground in the West

Luckily for the Suns, the aggressive new version of Deandre Ayton came to Los Angeles with the team, and the results showed early. Even against beefy Ivica Zubac, it was another great start from Ayton, who played with confidence in attack and completely dominated the boards again

This was when the Suns bench started to be a problem, as Dario Saric continued to struggle and Cameron Payne’s inexperience showed itself against the veteran Clippers backcourt Payne and Saric were both called to travel, and no one seemed to give the offense the juice it needed.

Also in the second half, Booker hit his knees with Leonard and looked to be in a bit of pain.However, Booker remained aggressive and continued to have a big impact on the game After all those bumps this season, maybe Booker’s knees are stronger? This is what we will choose to believe

The third was Leonard’s time, as the Clippers star played a solid defense against Booker and took control of LUNEOffensive and slammed home a monstrous dunk that made even Marv Albert sentimental about pitching games ever since. his basement

After that Leonard hit an impossible three on Saric’s outstretched hands, then with a two-point lead in his and the Clippers’ pocket, took the ball inside Booker, not wanting to give an inch (and probably wanting to send a message), raped Leonard

Officials examined the game for a hostile act, and Booker was eventually called up for a flagrant foul of 1

Leonard made both free throws, then the Clippers got the ball back, but Patrick Patterson missed a three

Booker continued to press LUNE after that as a goalscorer, but the Clippers kept a narrow lead

Part of the problem for Phoenix is ​​that they went cold at a bad time, missing nine straight triplets from the third quarter to the fourth, when Cameron Johnson missed the Suns’ first shot of the period. Maybe it was weak legs from back to back, maybe just fluke, but it allowed the Clippers to take control of the game

Jackson came down with 9:00 a.m. left in the third after taking a hand in Torrey Craig’s face The bad part was that Leonard came early to replace him, which certainly isn’t the compromise the Suns would have wanted

Down 10 at 7:50 from the finish, the Suns finally brought in the rest of the starters to try to make a final inning A beat later, Beverley hit Paul with a serious foul and was called for a 2 flagrant on her own, resulting in the eviction of Beverley

Even with Beverley from a defensive standpoint, the Clips continued to slow the game down and turn it into an isolation battle. They put Marcus Morris in the middle and George went into a supernova, hitting three times in a row to give LUNE a 14-point lead at 4.30am to go

The Suns stuck with Ayton but couldn’t get him the ball consistently and with the Clippers playing so flexibly on defense, the Suns’ offense also turned into an iso ball. Mikal Bridges finally made a three with around 3:45 to go, but the damage was done by then

The Suns never went back to single digits again, as Leonard, George and Rondo brought it home and gave LUNE a 113-103 victory
