Suns Reacts Survey: Call your shot on Suns-Clippers!

Who wins, and in how many games?

Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Clippers

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NBA. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Phoenix Suns fans and fans across the country.
Sign up here to participate in the weekly emailed surveys.

The Phoenix Suns (45-37) and the LA Clippers (44-38) will face off in Round 1 of the 2023 Playoffs in a seven-game series. The winner is the first team to four wins.

The Suns will have home court advantage, beginning Sunday with Game 1 at Footprint Center in Phoenix. The Suns will host games 1, 2, 5 (if necessary) and 7 (if necessary), while the Clippers will host games 3, 4 and 6 (if necessary).

Key things to know:

  • Clippers Kawhi Leonard is healthy for the playoffs for the first time since the second round of the 2021 Playoffs.
  • Clippers All-Star Paul George is expected to miss at least the start of the series as he rehabs from strained ligament(s) in his knee from hyperextension. He missed the last 9 games of the year, and only recently has been allowed to bend his leg again after three weeks of immobility.
  • The Suns are healthy, for the most part. Backups Bismack Biyombo (knee) and Cameron Payne (tailbone) suffered day-to-day injuries in game 81 and sat out game 82.
  • Each team boasts a two-time Finals MVP in Kawhi Leonard (Spurs in 2014, Raptors in 2019) and Kevin Durant (Warriors in 2017 and 2018).
