It's time for the Clippers vs Suns live stream to officially mark the start of the Western Conference Finals. That said, a lot has happened since Phoenix knocked out the Nuggets with a sweep. The Clippers have had a few games to adjust to their injuries, while the Suns had had some time to figure it out before this NBA playoffs live stream.
Chris Paul had been on a tear this postseason. The 36-year old was coming off a sweep of the Nuggets where he averaged 25.5 points and 10.3 assists-per-game. Now his postseason is on hold. Wednesday morning news broke that Paul entered the league’s COVID protocol, sideling him indefinitely. With Paul out, the Suns will have to rely on Cameron Payne who has played well as Paul’s back-up throughout the playoffs. The 26-year-old Payne is averaging 10 points in 20 minutes-per-game in the playoffs.

The Clippers have already had to adjust to life without a star in the playoffs. Since learning of Kawhi Leonard's ACL injury that has him out indefinitely, L.A. has been leaning on Paul George. The seven-time all-star scored 30 or more points in three straight games against the Jazz before helping to close out that series with a 28-point night.
The Suns go into Game 1 having not played in a week as they awaited their opponent, while the Clippers wrapped up their seven-game-series with Utah Friday night. Phoenix is a 4.5-point favorite in Game 1. The over/under is 221.5.
