NBA: Phoenix Suns at Los Angeles Clippers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Phoenix Suns had won two straight road games in slight-of-hand fashion, but could not pull the rabbit out of the hat for a third time in a row in Los Angeles against the Clippers.

The Clippers beat the Suns 108-95 in a game that wasn’t very close, even from the start, and got their 12th win of the season (12-18 overall). The Suns drop to 11-22.

The Suns just simply could not put the ball in the basket with any regularity, especially among the second unit. Isaiah Canaan and Troy Daniels combined to shoot 3-for-18 from the field. Mike James and Tyler Ulis added in 3-for-13 shooting.

T.J. Warren put up 22 (on 10-for-25 shooting) and grabbed 10 rebounds while dishing 4 assists. Marquese Chriss had 13 and 8. Rookie Josh Jackson had 17 and 4. Alex Len grabbed 13 rebounds.

For the Clippers, Austin Rivers led six double-digit scorers with 21 points.

Phoenix came out of the chute starting 0 for their first 6 possessions, and only scored 35 points in the entire first half.

Rookie Josh Jackson scored 13 of those points on 6-of-13 shooting, while the rest of the team scored just 22 points on 9-of-34 (26%). Yuck.

The Clippers did not play well either, but they played better than the Suns and took a 53-35 lead going into the half. Milos Teodosic and Austin Rivers combined for 16 points and 7 assists in the half.
