Clippers vs Suns NBA Live: The Los Angeles Clippers and Phoenix Suns will encounter each other for the third match-up in the NBA Western Conference Finals. In the first two games, the Suns beat the Clippers and in game 2, Deandre Ayton’s buzzer-beating alley-oop sealed the deal. As Devin Booker got hit on the nose, Cameron Payne came alive for 29 points which indicate the level of depth this Suns team has. Although George continues to rack up 25+ points games, the lack of depth at the Center position was the reason why the Suns were able to make the alley-oop in the final seconds. More details about LAC vs PHX Dream11 will be given here.

Clippers vs Suns WCF Game 3: This is the third time this Playoffs that the Clippers find themselves down by 2 games in a series and they have proven they can come back from the deficit, however, in those series, they had Kawhi Leonard for the major parts. The Suns and especially Ayton have exploited the matchup at the Center position and have feasted on the defense. Meanwhile, the Suns have had players like Cameron Johnson step their game off the bench while Devin Booker continues to pour the pain as the major enforcer. Paul George has been nothing short of stellar but Marcus Morris and Batum will have to show their hearts if the Clippers have to complete a comeback from 0-2 in three straight series. If Chris Paul(Game-Time Decision) returns to the floor then will it not only make it tougher for the Clippers to stage a comeback even with a relentless effort from George?

Projected Fantasy Points: 56
PG-13 has been accustomed to adversity in the Postseason but has been at his best throughout the Playoffs. After Leonard went down, he took the mantle and has locked in and locked out at both ends of the court. He has been an excellent scorer but also has given a boost at the rebounding and playmaking front. He gathered 26 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists in Game 2. Paul is an excellent choice as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA fantasy scenario.
Booker is known for stacking up points and plays the role of an enforcer for his squad. Devin is seeing a lot of success at the professional level right now and he is just two victories away from making the NBA Finals. After being so close to the Finals, the team can also dream about becoming the champions. He clinged to 20 points and 5 assists before a nose injury in Game 2.
Deandre is a formidable presence at the Center position and has continuously righted the ship of the Suns. His game-winner in Game 2 signifis how much he means to the mean, as his back-to-basket skills coupled with rebounding and defense enable him to one of the best at the position right now. Ayton shone with 24 points and 14 rebounds in Game 2.
Reggie has been prolific in the scoring column and has taken it up a notch during this postseason. Jackson plays the guard position for his squad and in absence of Kawhi, he is seeing even more touches. Jackson pulled in 19 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 steals in Game 2.
Mikal Bridges: PPG: 11.6 RPG: 3.8 SPG: 1.3 PFP: 23
Mikal is a phenomenal defensive player and makes this Suns unit a strong one with his impressive play. In Game 2, he collected 5 points and 5 rebounds.
Marcus Morris Sr.: PPG: 11.8 RPG: 4.2 PFP: 22
Morris hasn’t been wholly consistent but ahs given his all on the defensive end, while also chipping in with few baskets every now and then. He collected 7 points and 5 rebounds in Game 2.
Jae Crowder: PPG: 11.0 RPG: 5.1 PFP: 25
The experienced Forward is a quality defender, while he can also score and rebound at a decent clip. Jae was shut down in Game 2 on the offensive end, bringing home only 2 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists.
Cameron Payne: PPG: 11.8 APG: 3.9 SPG: 1.1 PFP: 20
