The Los Angeles Clippers took the lead early and never looked back to record their second series win over the Phoenix Suns.

The Western Conference finals now sit at 3-2 as Phoenix were denied the chance to punch their ticket into the NBA Finals, going down 116-102 in Arizona.

Reggie Jackson scored after 27 seconds in the do-or-die clash and the Clippers, without Kawhi Leonard and Ivica Zubac, led for the remainder of the game – barring 20 seconds early in the third quarter.
