Saturday, November 6th, finds the Atlanta Hawks playing the Phoenix Suns for the first time this season. Both teams made deep playoff runs with the Suns reaching the NBA Finals and the Hawks getting to the Conference Finals but have started slowly this season.
The Hawks last played Thursday in a 98-116 beat down by the Utah Jazz while the Suns routed the Houston Rockets 123-111 on the same night.
Last season, the squads played twice with the teams splitting the series each winning on their home courts. The Suns hold the all-time record having bested the Hawks in 74 of their 132 matches.
Without Donovan Mitchell in the lineup, the Hawks kept the game close with the Jazz through three quarters but once the teams hit the final frame it was Utah who blew the game wide open winning that final frame 41-24.
Atlanta struggled to stop the Jazz who scored eight 3-pointers in the frame. Hawks head coach Nate McMillan was furious with his team calling them out for not defending allowing 77 Jazz second-half points.
The loss was the first at State Farm Arena but the fourth in their last five matches. Atlanta struggled to score from the perimeter shooting 7 of 28 from deep (25 percent) with John Collins (3 of 4) and Bodgan Bogdanovic (2 of 4) making up five of their total 3-point buckets.
Jordan Clarkson (30) outscored the entire Hawks reserve unit with nine players accumulating 29 points. Trae Young led the scoring with 21 points adding seven assists.
Clint Capela registered a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds while Collins pitched in with 13 points as well. DeAndre Hunter followed up his big scoring night with an efficient 7 of 9 for 14 points.
Collins hurt his foot and is questionable while Bogdanovic (ankle) is probable and Onyeka Okongwu (shoulder)is out.
After starting the season 1-3 the Suns have strung together three wins in a row albeit against lower-tier teams the Kings, Cavaliers. and Pelicans. As the saying goes – you can only play the teams in front of you but the hope is this mini winning streak can turn things around.
The team is mired in off-court activity with the current focus on owner Robert Sarver and allegations which arose this week in a scathing article about the business practices of Sarver and the Suns front office.
The Suns are trying to avoid the drama and keep the focus on the games. In the victory versus Houston, Devin Booker led the way with 27 points, nine rebounds, five assists, a steal, and a block.
Chris Paul had a rough shooting night but continued to add assists (13) to his now third-best all-time tally making it 31 in the last two matches and also snared five steals.
Deandre Ayton provided a double-double of 16 points and 11 rebounds while Landry Shamet (19) and Mikal Bridges (16) also chipped in.
Cameron Payne (hamstring) is questionable while Dario Saric (knee) is out.

Free Atlanta Hawks vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
Based on their deep postseason run opponents aren’t underestimating either club but it’s the Hawks who are having a much more difficult time adjusting. They’ve struggled mightily on the road with a single win.
