Los Angeles Clippers vs. Phoenix Suns:

Clippers have more assets on their team, and Lue will make a lot of in-game and in-series adjustments to get an improved result.

He's had teams come back from 1 - 3, 0 - 2, and 0 - 2, to win.

The biggest threat to the Clippers is defensively giving up 3's. Phoenix is not as much of a problem as Utah was in that regards.

I don't know what to do about Ayton, but they'll probably figure it out somehow.

Rebounding is probably the other biggest weakness, but on the plus side, I think Batum, Mann, and George can combine for 7 steals a few times in games.

No, the Clippers rarely have short series, but that can change.

Los Angeles Clippers in 4.

Special Conference Finals Trophy Presenter: Lawler

If it's a road closeout, then I'll go with someone else, as I'm not sure if Lawler will travel. So then I'll go with World B. Free or Michael Cage.

I wish our coach would do that. I know there is an element of dance with the girl you came with, or in other words to stick with what works, but I don’t think we made the adjustments to win what we did well was not working.

Phoenix will win 1-4 games this series. Paul will get them at least 1.

Phoenix, but I don’t really care. Now, with Game 1 done, I still think Paul gets them at least 1. So the series will be at least 6 games.

I probably should root for the Clippers because 1) they haven’t won before; 2) I went to USC; and 3) because then we can say we lost to the champion (if they win in the Finals).

But, on the other hand, misery likes company and so if the Jazz have not won a championship, I don’t really want another franchise who hasn’t to win one. It is sort of the way I felt about Alex Smith. Sometimes, I want someone like him to win a Super Bowl to prove that that type can, but then that’s one other quarterback who won when he hasn’t. So I might as well root for a has-been to win more.
