On June 29, Beijing time, the fifth match between the suns and the Clippers in the western finals was held in Phoenix. In the first quarter, the Clippers took the lead 36-26. Morris scored 13 points, Reggie 12 points and Booker 11 points.
Due to zubaz’s absence due to injury, Talon Luhmann has entered the starting line-up to form a small team. The Clippers started with joint defense. In this season’s playoffs, they used joint defense 40 times, and each round let the opponent get 1 point. They performed well. But today, the effect is surprisingly good. The Suns all missed the first four shots, and the Suns started 7-0. Booker also scored a three, but Morris, Reggie and George came forward and scored.
Today, Tyrone Lu let Morris keep on attacking with the ball, and the effect was very good. He had a knee injury before, and today he seems to have fully recovered. Five minutes before the first quarter, Morris scored 6 points in 3, and the Clippers started 18-5. Suns 5 minutes before 8 shot only 2, in addition to Booker, only Aton got 2 points, Monty Williams quickly called the pause.
After the pause, the Suns’ attack improved, but the defensive problem was still very big. Morris was very hot. He first hit Booker with his back, then made two long-range shots, including a three-point shot. Morris scored 13 points in the first six shots.
However, after the sun adapted to the joint defense, he found the offensive feeling. Booker scored three points for the foul outside the three-point line. Then he and Penn scored another three points. The sun chased 21-25, and Lou called for a pause. When he came back from the time-out, koshins was on the stage. He was a pick and roll dunk, and then the outside line was used as a shield to help Reggie hit the three points… Reggie made a layup in the last moment of the first quarter, and the Clippers had a perfect first quarter today.
