Derrick White made his return to the court in a big way against the LA Clippers, scoring a team-high 19 points off the bench and playing clutch defense to seal the victory, 101-94. It was the first time the Spurs had held an opponent below 100 points since January 5th, White's last game before entering health and safety protocols.
Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns have won three straight after defeating the Detroit Pistons 135-108 behind 30 points from Devin Booker.
The Suns have won four straight games in the series and last defeated the Spurs in December, 108-104.

San Antonio Spurs vs Suns Prediction
The return of Jakob Poeltl will be important in this one, as will the re-integration of Derrick White back into the lineup. Deandre Ayton being day-to-day could make the difference in this matchup that will likely be closely fought. The Spurs should play well with almost their whole roster back, but I'm going with Phoenix pulling away late due to their abundance of clutch guys.
Suns 113 , Spurs 106
