The New Orleans Pelicans fell short to the Washington Wizards in their last outing, losing the game 105-91, while out in Phoenix the Suns also came away on the losing end of things after they came up short in their last matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks (final score 137-112.)
The Phoenix Suns just continue to be plagued by defensive inconsistencies as a team. Over their last eight games the Suns have allowed every team they’ve played to score more then 100 points. And last game was probably one of their worst efforts defensively so far in the season.
They allowed Milwaukee, a low scoring team, to score a season high 137 points in their last outing. That’s just unacceptable, especially against a team like the Bucks.
Milwaukee isn’t a great shooting team, and most of their points come from inside the paint.
Yet, somehow the Suns allowed six different Bucks players to get into double-digit scoring totals. Even John Henson and Mirza Teletovic scored more then 10 points apiece, so that just simply comes down to effort.
The Suns can’t hope to win games giving up 130 points to teams on the regular; especially the Anthony Davis led New Orleans Pelicans. Phoenix has got to contain Anthony Davis all night if they’re to beat the Pelicans, so defense is going to be first and foremost for the team.
New Orleans Pelicans
The New Orleans Pelicans fell short to the Washington Wizards in their last outing, and an anaemic offense is what ultimately let to their downfall as a team.
Despite Anthony Davis is best efforts, he wasn’t able to carry the team on his back and lead them to victory, and the terrible play of his supporting cast was the reason for that.
Besides Davis, nobody else could really get going on the night. Jrue Holiday shot just 5/17, Buddy Hield went 3/10, and Tyreke Evans was 6/16 from the field.
Between those three none of them were able to help Anthony Davis carry the scoring load because they just couldn’t get the lid off the basket all night.
However, if they hope to change that next game they’re going to need to help him out more. Davis can’t just do everything on the offensive end of the floor, so other guys have got to help him out if the team hopes to earn their 20th win of the season.
They can’t just allow Anthony Davis to do everything, so if Jrue Holiday, Tyreke Evans and Buddy Hield can help Davis offensively they’ll have a shot at beating the Suns, because they’re the better defensive team between the two.
