On Friday, March 26th, the Phoenix Suns meets the Charlotte Hornets for the second time this season. In the first meeting on February 24th, the Hornets won 124-121
Last season, the squads played twice with Phoenix winning both contests. The Suns hold the all-time record having won 36 matches of the 61 played.
The Phoenix Suns will complete their four-game road trip in Charlotte having gone 2-1 through the initial portion.
Phoenix collected an easy victory over the Heat, lost a one-point battle to the Magic, and narrowly escaped a win versus the Raptors.
What this brief four-game trip highlight is this iteration of the Suns finds a way to win. That can often be the one caveat holding back a squad from entering the upper echelon and Chris Paul is clearly the reason why.
In the win versus the Raptors, CP3 led the way with 19 points, six rebounds, eight assists, and two steals. Deandre Ayton also registered 19 points along with nine rebounds.
Devin Booker was limited to 16 points while Mikal Bridges was the only other double-figure scorer with 11 points.
Abdel Nader is sidelined with a knee injury and won’t play on Sunday.
The Hornets were among the 23 teams who made moves at the trade deadline, albeit a smallish move.
They picked up Brad Wanamaker from the Golden State Warriors to help offset the guard duties while LaMelo Ball is out healing from his fractured wrist.
Wanamaker was picked up in the offseason by the Dubs to help with guard duties but recently Jordan Poole and rookie Nico Mannion moved ahead of him in the rotation. The Hornets only had to cough up cash for Wanamaker.
Charlotte is rumored to be among the teams seeking to add buy-out candidate Andre Drummond to their roster.
As for Ball he’s expected to miss at least the next month potentially longer having already undergone surgery.
Despite the absence of their young rookie star the Hornets are continuing to roll along bringing a three-game win streak into this match following victories versus the Spurs Rockets and Heat.
On the season Malik Monk has scored 20 or more points seven times with two occasions over 30 points — both against the Miami Heat. He led the Hornets with 32 on Friday. Terry Rozier added a double-double of 26 points and 11 assists (plus five rebounds).
Devonte Graham (16), Gordon Hayward (11) and Miles Bridges (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Malik Monk (foot) and PJ Washington (leg) are both listed as probable for Sunday.

Free Phoenix Suns vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
On Friday, the Raptors kept the Suns busy on defense with ball movement and the Hornets move the ball even more so Phoenix will need to be locked in defensively.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Hornets +6
Although I like the Suns to win I think the Hornets keep it closer than six points. I also like the under.
