The Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Clippers will meet at Footprint Center Tuesday night at 7 p.m. for Game 5 of their first-round playoffs series.
The NBA announced the game time after Friday’s slate.
The Suns have a chance to close the series on Tuesday, as they lead 3-1 following a 112-100 Game 4 win on Saturday in L.A.
Phoenix has won the last three games to recapture home-court advantage after falling behind 1-0.
Clippers star Kawhi Leonard missed Games 3 and 4 with a right knee sprain. There is no timetable for his return, according to TNT’s Chris Haynes.
The winner of Suns-Clippers will face the winner of Nuggets-Timberwolves in the second round. Denver leads that series 3-0 with a chance to sweep on Sunday.
