The Phoenix Suns are horrible this season. The Suns are currently 28 games under .500. and are 1-4 over their last five games. Oklahoma City is currently the 7th seed in the West if the playoffs were to end today. The Thunder are 3-2 over their last five, and have lost two straight.
The Suns and Thunder last took the court against each other, was five days ago. The Thunder got the win, 124-116. The season series is tied at 1-1.
The Phoenix Suns are a tanker again this season. Coming into this year, a lot of people (including myself) were thinking the Suns could make a playoff push. Boy, was I wrong. The Suns don’t even have 20 wins through 66 games this year. Seems like this terrible year can be blamed on Suns Ownership and upper management.
The Suns do have two pieces they can build around in TJ Warren and Devin Booker. Warren is averaging 19.7 points per game this season. Warren is a good young piece to have and has started 62 games this year for the Suns. Warren compliments Booker well in the backcourt for the Suns.
Devin Booker is the Suns leading scorer again this year. Booker is quietly averaging over 25 points per game this season, and also has one of the sweetest strokes from three in the NBA. Booker was crowned 3 point champion this year in the three point shoot out.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Suns are the worst team in the league. The Suns are allowing 113.3 points per game this season, ranking the Suns 30th in points allowed this year. Phoenix recently allowed 125 points against the Heat in their most recent loss.
Phoenix has no issues with losing games. The Suns are 10-23 on the road this year, so I would not expect much defense from them in this matchup.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder are the 7th best team in the West right now, but still have a good shot at finishing in the top four in the West this year. The Thunder sit two games back of 4th seeded New Orleans and 2.5 games back from the Portland Trailblazers for the 3rd seed.
With the most competitive part of the regular season coming into full swing, the Thunder must be prepared to take everyone’s best shot. Including the Suns. Phoenix is bad this year, but one of their 19 wins came against the Thunder January 7th 114-100. OKC allowed the Suns back-court to combine for 49 points.
On the defensive side of the court for the Thunder, Oklahoma City is allowing 104.1 points per game this season. Good enough to rank the Thunder 8th in points allowed this year. In both games against Phoenix this season, the Thunder allowed 114 in game one and 116 in the most recent matchup.

Free Phoenix Suns vs. Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Prediction:
Expect the Suns back-court to come out firing. Booker and Warren aren’t shy when it comes to scoring the ball. They both will have big games, but that won’t be enough.
OKC is 21-11 at home this year. Look for the Thunder’s stars Westbrook, George and Anthony to have 20 points or more against Phoenix in this matchup.
