Saturday the Suns will again play the Clippers in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

On Thursday the Suns lost to the Clippers breaking their nine game playoff winning streak.

It's time to regroup.

The game will be televised on ESPN.

Start time is listed at 6 p.m. Arizona time.

Hopefully we should hear something about Cam Payne's injury tomorrow.

Surprise
Has anybody gone down to the Arena to watch an away game? I just bought tickets for me and my son. It will be our first time in the arena since the remodel so I am not only looking forward to the game, but also to check out all the changes.

I've always been curious about that also.

Definitely looking forward to hearing about your experience. Hopefully you and your son have a great time and are able to celebrate a win down there.

I will be shocked if Cam Payne is playing. If his ankle wouldn't allow him to return, that typically takes a few days to get over. Hope he can play. We really missed him last game.

Losing Cam is a big loss off the bench considering how spotty our bench has been from a consistency perspective. He is good for double figures off the bench and handful of assists each game. I hope he is OK because we need him. We are not getting any production out of Moore and it appears that Monty wants to keep a short rotation in the playoffs.

That sounds like it'll be fun. I remember going to the coliseum in the mid-90's when they were showing some of the home playoff games being played at AWA. It was packed, and I enjoyed it.

If Cam Payne is out normally point Booker would help fill that role behind Chris Paul.

It's time to give Jevon Carter a look at this position. We know he brings defense, intensity and can shoot.

CP3 and Book need to take over on Sat.

I'm fine with the pace as long as our defense stays strong. But they shot the ball so horribly. Hopefully Chris has his legs under him.

Devin Booker sounded upbeat after the game. If I heard correctly he had a conversation with Rip Hamilton about wearing a face mask.

When something is taken away, something else opens up.

He jokes around that if Cam Johnson went through it, he could.

Payne also puts more pressure on the clippers with his speed than anyone else on our roster.

When the guards are being pressured/abused and missing shots throw the ball to AYTON! Holly crap its not rocket science.

Here is a replay of where Cam Payne was injured in Game 3. Still no word on his status.

It looks like he rolls an ankle.
