Monday, December 2, finds the Phoenix Suns taking on the Charlotte Hornets in the first meeting between the clubs this season.
Last season, the teams played twice with the Hornets sweeping the series. The Suns hold the all-time record having bested the Hornets in 34 of their 58matches.
The Suns appeared to have moved past the early season test 11 games into the season with a 7-4 record. Then injuries began to pile up and they’ve since gone 1-6 taking the sheen off an otherwise exciting start.
Part of the demise can be tied to veterans Ricky Rubio and Aron Baynes missing four and five games respectively during this period. Strange as it may seem these two offer the calm which balances both sides of the floor.
Rubio is the point guard the Suns always lacked in the Devin Booker era and Baynes provides the defensive voice to keep everyone focused on the task at hand.
On the other hand, this could also be a sign of teams now making greater efforts to prepare for matches against the Suns as some teams may have underestimated them and have since had time to prepare properly.
In their last loss the Mavericks took down the Suns 120-113 with Kelly Oubre leading his team via a double-double of 22 points and 10 rebounds. Rubio chipped in with 21 points and nine rebounds.
The trio of Devon Booker (18), Aron Baynes (17), and Mikal Bridges (11) were the other double-digit contributors.
Baynes (calf) and Ty Jerome (ankle) are probable for Monday while Cameron Johnson (illness) and Mikal Bridges (quadricep) are both questionable.
Cheick Diallo is out with illness and Deandre Ayton continues his suspension until December 16.
It was an up and down week for the Hornets who seemingly own the Detroit Pistons beating them in both games of the home and home set. Charlotte won all three meetings versus Detroit and they all came down to the final shot.
In the game Friday, it was the Pistons who took the last shot but the clock expired before Detroit could shot.
However, the celebration from that win was short-lived as Charlotte got absolutely annihilated 137-96 by the Milwaukee Bucks one night later.
The two wins versus the Pistons represent their only two victories in the last eight games.
In the loss to the Bucks, Devonte Graham led his team with 24 points while Terry Rozier added 19 points. The duo of Miles Bridges (15) and Cody Zeller (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
Devonte’ Graham leads the team in scoring (18.2 points) and assists (7.4) while Cody Zeller tops the team rebounding (7.9) and field goal percentage (51.6) categories.
In terms of injuries, Michael Kidd Gilchrist is nursing a left calf strain and is subsequently listed as unlikely to participate in Monday’s matchup against the Suns.
