Saturday, November 10th brings us a Western Conference matchup between two underachieving teams as the Phoenix Suns travel down south to the Big Easy to take on the New Orleans Pelicans live from the Smoothie King Center.
The Suns are coming off another loss in their last game, while the Pelicans are coming off a win. New Orleans has won 7 out of the last 10 between these two teams.
The Phoenix Suns played their little hearts out Thursday night in their overtime loss to the Boston Celtics. The Suns at one point held a 22 point lead, but the team faltered down the stretch and let the C’s complete the improbable comeback.
As per usual, Devin Booker led the Suns in scoring Thursday night with 38 points. He also led the team in assists and minutes with 9 and 43. TJ Warren had himself a nice performance with 29 points and seven boards in 42 minutes. Deandre Ayton led the team with 10 rebounds.
Igor Kokoskov didn’t get much production out of his bench at all in Thursday’s game. Elie Okobo led the second stringers with four points, while Ryan Anderson was probably the biggest contributor with a big goose egg in 15 minutes. This unit will definitely have to step it up if they want to win this game.
20 point half time leads are tough to blow. 17 point 4th quarter leads are tougher. But those are the growing pains that young teams go through in this league. Expect the Suns to elicit the same ferocity that they came out with against the Celtics in this game.
New Orleans Pelicans
This will be the last game of the home stand for the Pelicans before the head out on a quick two game road trip to Toronto and Minnesota, so look for them to come out hard and take advantage of the Suns after their big meltdown on Thursday night.
Anthony Davis led all scorers in their last game against the Bulls with 32 points. He added 15 rebounds in 37 minutes. Jrue Holiday had 17 points and 10 rebounds for a double-double, and Nikola Mirotic added 15 rebounds in the contest. All in all, the Pelicans had five players score in double digits.
The Pelicans shot 44.7% from the field, 36.7% from beyond the arc and 70.6% from the free throw line. If they want to take advantage of they youth of Phoenix, they will need to drive the lane and get their free throw attempts into the 20’s instead of the 17 they shot against Chicago.

Free Phoenix Suns vs.New Orleans Pelicans NBA Prediction:
Even though the Pelicans record isn’t where they want it to be early in the year, they are still the superior team in this matchup.
The Suns played better than expected against the Celtics, but that seems to be their MO this season. Overplay against the good teams, and lose to the weak ones. New Orleans is a good team, so expect a close game here.
