While teams fight for playoff position, it’s the Nets and Suns who play a crucial game for draft lottery position here on Thursday night.
Brooklyn has consistently been a horrible team and has been at the bottom of the East from the start. The Suns started off looking like they had potential, but really tanked and are now fighting for the bottom in the West.
The Nets being in favorites, in a road game, says all it needs to about the Phoenix Suns this season.
Brooklyn comes in a game better of the Suns, but has dropped 2 straight games and things could get really worse for them. Brooklyn begins a 9 game road trip, a place where they have lost 7 straight games. This season, the Nets are just 4-20 away from home.
Brooklyn fell in Portland on Tuesday, in a game where they nearly erased a giant deficit. The Nets trailed by as many as 19 points and climbed all the way back to tie things up, before ultimately losing 112-104.
Defense has been a problem all season long for them as they allow 104.4 points per game on the road.
While this is a fight for a lottery position, it’s not between Brooklyn and Phoenix. Last season, the Nets traded away this year’s first round pick. It’s the Celtics who are rooting hard for the Nets to tank and lose.
The Suns are really in tank mode, falling in 12 straight games and 18 of their last 19 overall.
Phoenix showed no fight in Monday’s 124-84 loss to the Clippers, a game where they were dominated in every aspect and looked as if they were going through the motions at times.
The loss didn’t seem to bother Earl Watson too much, stating that his team his out there giving it everything they have and right now the results are just whatever happens.
C Alex Len has been one or maybe the only bright spot for the Suns this season. Len has been inconsistent like the rest of the team, but has turned in back to back solid performances that includes a double-double.
He’s shown the potential and has given the Suns some hope for what lies ahead.
G Devin Booker has stumbled out of the gate since the All Star break, shooting just 8 for 30 over a 3 game span.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
The Suns won’t go into full tank mode by any means, but they may not even have too. This team just has too many young players who haven’t quite hit their strides yet.
Give the edge to the visitors here, who played well offensively against Portland and aren’t fighting for a lottery spot with them trading the pick away. Playing well and gelling as a team can give them some positivity heading into next season.
