Sunday, January 6 finds the Charlotte Hornets facing the. Phoenix Suns as they meet for the first time in the 2018-19 regular season. In their last game on Wednesday, the Hornets got thrashed by the visiting Mavericks. They opened their back to back set with a loss to the Nuggets Saturday. The Suns played Friday in a loss to the Clippers.
Last season, Charlotte swept Phoenix in their two game series.
The Suns hold the all-time record having bested the Hornets in 34 of their 56 matches.
Having your name added to one of the three teams the Mavericks beat on the road is one thing. But getting routed by 38 points is another level of embarrassment.
Charlotte has had four full days to reflect on that loss and should be adequately focused for this game in Phoenix, especially after another loss in Denver.
This is the ongoing narrative of the Hornets season, one great win – one terrible loss. This team is the most perplexing in the Association with the 9th ranked offense, 17th ranked defense and 12th best differential.
Now the Hornets are also dealing with key injuries as Jeremy Lamb suffered a strained right hamstring and is questionable for either game this weekend.
Cody Zeller fractured his hand and will miss between six and eight weeks. Although Malik Monk tweaked his ankle he is expected to suit up for both games.
Despite losing to the Clippers six different Suns registered double-digit scoring efforts. Devin Booker led the way with 23 points. The quintet who joined Booker were T.J. Warren (20), Richaun Holmes (16), and a trio who scored 10 points (Mikal Bridges, Josh Jackson, and Jamal Crawford).
Deandre Ayton is improving with additional minutes on the court and the chemistry developing between him and Devin Booker is part of the reason why Phoenix is recognizing some success and growth.
To wit, Ayton is averaging a double-double of 16.7 points and 10.8 rebounds on the season with the latter stat being the team best. For his part, Booker is producing a team best in scoring (25.4 points) and assists (7.1)
The Suns have no injuries to report.

Free Charlotte Hornets vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
Despite playing the night prior the Hornets theoretically should have enough to take this match even with a few key players out injured.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Hornets ATS
Expect the Suns to give the Hornets a run for their money, but unless Phoenix can find an answer to slow Kemba Walker this should be an easy Charlotte victory (assuming the Hornets don’t play another match resembling their loss to the Mavericks).
