The NBA brings more action today as the Phoenix Suns will clash with the Charlotte Hornets.
Phoenix was defeated 111-109 on the road by Toronto Thursday night in their last game. While Charlotte enjoyed a 114-95 win at home over Sacramento in their last game.
Phoenix Suns Form
The Suns are heading into this game as one of the worst teams in the league. Moreover, they are placed on the bottom of the Western Conference. Therefore, they are as far as 14 games behind Utah for the final postseason spot.
On the bright side, Devin Booker had a good game against the Raptors. He scored 30 points and 9 assists in that game.
On the offensive side of the game, the Suns have an average of 106 points per game. Therefore, that is enough for the 26th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have 40.5 boards per game, combined with 24 assists per night.
On the defensive side of the field, the Suns allow 114.5 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 24th spot in the league in scoring defence.
Charlotte Hornets Form
The Hornets are heading into this game on the wings of two wins in the last two games. Moreover, they were able to beat the Kings in front of their fans last Thursday. Also, Charlotte holds the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. However, the Heat is right behind them and it will be a tight race until the end.
On the offensive side of the game, the Hornets have an average of 112.1 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 11th spot in the league in scoring.
Also, they have an average of 44.6 boards per game combined with 23.8 assists per night.
On the defensive side of the field, they have been conceding an average of 111.4 points per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 17th spot in the league in scoring defence.
The Suns are a poor team and they can only play for pride and prestige in the upcoming games. Moreover, their season has been bad and their team morale is low. On the other side, the Hornets need the win in order to keep their playoff spot. They have a two back to back wins and I expect them to win this game too. Take the Hornets in this one.
