Phoenix Suns

Suns coach Monty Williams said Chris Paul shouldn't have played 39 minutes during his Game 3 return, and that Paul "probably got tired." "It hurt us when Cam Payne couldn’t come back [from an ankle injury], so I left Chris out there for a longer stretch," Williams said. "And that’s on me." CP3 was only able to shoot at his home basket during an eight-day COVID-19 isolation, but he offered no excuses after the Suns' loss, telling reporters, "I shot terrible. I gotta pick up the pace. We’ll be ready Game 4." Although he may not flirt with 40 minutes on Saturday, playing time shouldn't be a concern for DFS managers.

Los Angeles Clippers DFS Notes

Kawhi Leonard (right knee sprain) is officially out for Game 4 on Saturday, according to Clippers coach Ty Lue. This is no surprise at all and merely confirms Kawhi's status. Lue is treating Kawhi as though he's day-to-day, but he seems closer to 'out indefinitely' and the Clippers haven't been forthcoming with details or a return target. Terance Mann continues to shine in a bigger role without Leonard, and fared well in another start during Thursday's Game 3 home win.

Suns vs. Clippers Game 4 Playoffs Prediction

The Suns are 1-10 against the spread in their last 11 games versus the Clippers at STAPLES Center and are 6-16 against the number in their last 22 games versus Los Angeles overall. The Clippers are 5-0 against the spread in their last five home games, are 6-1 against the number in their last seven games overall and are 4-0 at the betting window in their last four games a home underdog.
