Sunday, April 25th finds the Phoenix Suns playing the Brooklyn Nets for the second and final time this season. Brooklyn won the prior match on February 16th (128-124).
The Suns hold the all-time record between the clubs with 46 wins in 91 meetings. Last season, the teams played twice and split the two contests.
In their last 20 games, the Suns are 16-4 and are the only team in the NBA not yet to reach double-digit road losses. Three of those road victories came at the expense of three elite Eastern clubs (Heat, Bucks, 76ers).
Phoenix will finish this Eastern road trip with a back-to-back set in New York facing the Nets on Sunday and Knicks on Monday.
It’s the second back-to-back set of the trip with the first resulting in the loss to the Celtics. The Suns failed to score 100 points in that defensive battle losing 86-99.
Chris Paul led the way with 22 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, and two steals. Mikal Bridges and Devin Booker each pitched in 15 points while Deandre Ayton scored 10 points with nine rebounds.
While the Suns’ bench has performed well this season their reserve unit was outscored 30 to 16 which was ultimately the difference in the match.
Jae Crowder (ankle) missed the match Thursday and is day-to-day. Abdel Nader (knee) remains out with no definitive return date.
The Nets reclaimed the top spot in the Eastern Conference via a combination of a win versus the Celtics and the 76ers losing to the Bucks on Saturday.
Still, it’s been a lost opportunity for Brooklyn to put some distance between themselves and the 76ers as they’ve alternated four wins (Wolves, Hornets, Pelicans, Celtics) with four losses (Lakers, 76ers, Heat, Raptors).
Against the Celtics, Kyrie Irving was one rebound shy of a triple-double with 14 points, 11 assists, and nine rebounds plus four steals.
Brooklyn can put plenty of points on the board but this match was more about defense and balanced scoring.
The top point producer was Joe Harris with 20 while Jeff Green (19), Bruce Brown (15), and Blake Griffin (13) each reach double-figures. DeAndre Jordan grabbed 11 boards plus eight points.
While the 3-ball wasn’t falling (34.4%) the Nets were getting out in transition winning the fast break (32 to 3) and scoring in the paint (48 to 38).
Kevin Durant (thigh), James Harden (hamstring), Tyler Johnson (knee), Chris Chiozza (had surgery -third metacarpal fracture), Nicolas Claxton as well as Alize Johnson (health, safety protocols) are all out.
Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) is lost for the season.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Nets are 8-2 in the teams last 10 meetings.
- The Nets are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings between these clubs
- The over/under is 5-5 in the last 10 contests between the clubs.
- The Suns are 12-3 SU in their last 15 games on the road.
Free Phoenix Suns vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
Phoenix needs to jump on the Nets early and a better effort from their bench to capture the victory. The Nets won’t put up the same defensive effort the Suns faced in any of the four losses so there is an opportunity to get this victory.
If Phoenix wants a shot at winning both matches in New York they’ll need to employ that strategy since the Knicks will bring the defensive intensity on Monday and tired legs will only work to their advantage.
