Wednesday, May 5th the Phoenix Suns take on the Atlanta Hawks in the clubs’ second and final meeting of the season. The Suns won the first contest on March 30th, 117-110.
The Suns hold the all-time record between the squads with 74 victories in 131 meetings. Last season these clubs played twice with the teams splitting the season series.
The Suns have supplanted the Utah Jazz with the best record in the West and are also the best in the association. If they maintain their hold atop the ladder it means they’ll own home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.
Phoenix had an impressive showing in week 19 ending the Knicks’ nine-game win streak and then delivering quality victories versus the LA Clippers and the Utah Jazz. They finished the week defeating the Thunder.
Down the stretch, these critical wins in clutch time in games featuring playoff-type intensity are helping build the confidence for this young squad.

They continued the hot streak to start this week building their current win streak to five games in a row via a 134-118 overtime win in Cleveland.
Chris Paul is adding fuel to his argument to win MVP leading this young squad. Versus the Cavs he delivered an impressive double-double of 23 points and 16 assists adding six rebounds, four steals, and two blocks.
Devin Booker (31), Mikal Bridges (22), Deandre Ayton (15), and Frank Kaminsky (11) were the other double-figure scorers.
Jae Crowder missed Tuesday’s game still nursing an ankle injury and is day-to-day. Abdel Nader is out recovering from a knee injury.
The Hawks have dealt with a ton of injuries this season still without youngsters De’Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish.
Week 19 wasn’t productive as they lost three in a row including two versus the 76ers. Atlanta finally got back on track defeating the Bulls and began week 20 with a solid win over the Blazers.
Atlanta got a little fortunate facing the Bulls without Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic while the Blazers had to spend time in their hotel parking garage due to a tornado warning and that may have played a role in Portland running out of gas late in their match.
The latter victory featured 20 made 3-pointers for the Hawks with Danilo Gallinari and Bogdan Bogdanovic each hitting seven triples. Gallo finished with 28 points and eight rebounds.
Sniper Trae Young was cold from deep (1 of 6) but worked his magic dishing dimes as he registered a double-double of 21 points and 11 assists. Clint Capela also collected a double-double of 11 points and 10 rebounds while John Collins chipped in 15 points and eight rebounds.
Coach Nate McMillan advised De’Andre Hunter who has missed 46 games with a knee issue is nearing a return while Cam Reddish who has missed 36 games with Achilles soreness isn’t expected back until the postseason.
Bogdan Bogdanovic (left hamstring soreness) is probable.
