On Monday, February 7th, the Phoenix Suns are on the road to face the Chicago Bulls for the first of two matches this season. The teams will play again on March 18th with Phoenix playing host.
Phoenix last played Saturday defeating the Wizards 95-80 while the Bulls hosted the 76ers in the front side of their back-to-back set losing 108-119.
Last season, the teams played twice with the Suns winning both contests. In a rarity the two teams have each won 71 games in their 142 games played all-time.
With their streak ended in Atlanta by the Hawks, the Suns got right back to work with a workmanlike effort in routing the Wizards. Deandre Ayton who missed time due to COVID and a sprained ankle has his best match since returning three games ago.
The Suns big man posted a massive double-double of 20 points and 16 rebounds, six of which came on the offensive glass along with two assists and two steals.
Chris Paul (1 of 5) and Devin Booker (1 of 6) had a rough shooting night from the perimeter but delivered nonetheless. CP3 offered 14 points, nine assists, four rebounds, a steal, and a block while Booker delivered 11 points, seven rebounds, and five assists.
Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson each scored 12 points as the other Suns double-digit contributors.
Abdel Nader (conditioning), Landry Shamet (ankle), Cameron Payne (wrist), Dario Saric (knee), and Frank Kaminsky (knee) are all out indefinitely
The Bulls arrive having played on Sunday on the front side of a tough back to back set that featured the 76ers. This match is their third game in four nights.
In losing to Philly the Bulls feel out of the top spot in the East and are in a virtual tie with the Bucks with the Cavaliers a half game behind them and the 76ers now only a game back.
That they held on as long as they did with the loss of two core contributors is a testament to their depth and quality roster.
DeMar DeRozan sure did his best on Sunday to lead his squad scoring 45 points plus nine rebounds, seven assists, and a steal.
Unfortunately, he needed more help and only got double-figure scoring from Nikola Vucevic (23) and Javonte Green (17). Adding to their injure woes both Zach LaVine (back) and Coby White (groin) were out Sunday and are questionable for Monday.
Derrick Jones Jr. (knee), Lonzo Ball (knee), and Alex Caruso (wrist) are out between six and eight weeks each. Patrick Williams (thumb) is out for the season.

Phoenix Suns vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Analysis:
It might be the dog days of winter but in Chicago the more appropriate weather adage would be “when it rains it pours” in terms of their injury woes.
Already struggling without Ball, Caruso, Jones Jr. and Williams also not having LaVine and White essentially removes six of their top eight players from the rotation.
The only surprise is the Suns are favored by more.
