Clippers vs. Suns Prediction
The Suns are double digit favorites over the Clippers on Thursday night at 10:00 p.m. ET. Is that too many points to lay or is Phoenix still a sound play for bettors?

Los Angeles Clippers DFS Notes
Serge Ibaka hit 7-of-7 shots, 2-of-2 3-pointers and 1-of-1 free throws for 17 points, four rebounds, one assist and one block in 20 minutes of Monday's start in a loss to the Wolves. The Clippers were blown out tonight and Ibaka hadn't scored more than seven points in any of his previous four games. We don't trust him and his best days are behind him. And the low minutes he gets, despite starting on most nights, make him a pretty shaky fantasy option.
Phoenix Suns DFS Notes
Devin Booker hit 12-of-24 shots, three 3-pointers and 6-of-6 free throws on his way to 33 points, nine rebounds and four assists in Tuesday's 123-110 win over the Pelicans. The nine boards tied his season high, he hasn't missed a free throw in three games, and has hit 21-of-43 shots since hitting just 7-of-26 of them in a New Year's Eve loss to Boston.
