Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Suns-Clippers, the score, and the leading scorer. 

Los Angeles won 113-103 behind Paul George’s game-high 33.

Subscriber Jason P. Dumont (@jasondumont) predicted a 113-109 Clippers win. No one foresaw George’s big game. Congrats, Jason!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
