Suns vs Clippers NBA Live: The Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Clippers will come face-to-face for the second match-up in the NBA Western Conference Finals. In the first game of the series, the Suns beat the Clippers as Devin Booker amassed a stellar 40 point triple-double. The first game was tied all the way up to the third quarter but a superb performance in the last quarter sealed the deal for the surging Suns squad. The Suns are without Chris Paul while Clippers miss the services of Kawhi Leonard, however, it seems both teams still can deploy their other weapons to make up for the losses of their Superstar players. More information about PHX vs LAC Dream11 will be given here.

Suns vs Clippers WCF Game 2: The Clippers have now lost the first game of the three series they have played so far but it can be argued that the recent form of Suns mean that coming back from a 0-2 deficit like in earlier series is a more troublesome task. The Clippers have been lucky to get Reggie Jackson’s contribution on a top-notch level but the Suns appear more talented in terms of depth. However, PG-13 has shown that he can rally around the troops himself and put on a show at the offensive end. The Suns may have a slight edge going into the match-up considering they have won 8 games in a row and that too against difficult opponents.

Projected Fantasy Points: 56
George has been at the helm of the Clippers with Leonard out of the mix and he has shown that he is more than a capable leader. Personally, he has done a superb job at generating offense, while also grabbing rebounds and dishing out assists. PG-13 has been on fire since Leonard has been out and has shown that he can single-handedly will his team to wins. He racked up 34 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds, and 2 steals in Game 1. George is an excellent pick-up as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA fantasy scenario.
Like Game 1, Devin will see the ball a lot in his hands as their primary ball handler Chris Paul has been put under COVID-19 protocols. Booker is a solid offensive player and has earned the marquee status in league as one of the most reliable scoring guards. The SG was on fire in Game 2, stacking up 40 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists.
Ayton is a power player who can finish inside, rebound the ball, and also defend the paint at a quality rate. Deandre has been one of the more reliable players for Phoenix and has been impressive throughout the Playoffs, more than holding his own at the Center position. He came up with 20 points and 9 rebounds in Game 1.
Jackson has turned back the clock during the Playoffs and has given the Clippers a lot of material at the guard position. Reggie has been constantly racking up points and has been a stabilizer at the offensive end with his ability to put up points and use the defensive gaps to his advantage. He hauled in 24 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists during Game 1.
Mikal Bridges: PPG: 12.2 RPG: 3.7 SPG: 1.5 PFP: 28
Bridges is an excellent defensive player who can also finish strong and provide decent shooting. The young player is vital for his team and turned up with 14 points, 2 blocks, and 1 steal in Game 1.
Marcus Morris Sr.: PPG: 11.8 RPG: 4.2 PFP: 22
Marcus has been up-and down during the Playoffs but has been crucial in the defensive schemes of the team that lacks a high-quality big man right now. He registered 6 points and 3 rebounds in Game 1.
Jae Crowder: PPG: 11.8 RPG: 5.2 BPG: 1.0 PFP: 25
Jae is a terrific offensive and defensive player at the Forward position and certainly has been huge for the Suns during their amazing Playoffs run. He pouched 13 points and 6 rebounds in Game 1.
Cameron Payne: PPG: 10.3 APG: 3.5 SPG: 1.0 PFP: 20
Nicolas Batum: PPG: 9.4 RPG: 6.1 SPG: 1.6 PFP: 23
PG: C Payne, R Jackson
