The Phoenix Suns and Portland Trail Blazers are set to square off Tuesday night for the second time this season. Round 1 went to the Suns on their home court, 118-115.
This time around, the Blazers have home-court advantage and look to even the season series.
The Suns began their season 0-4, but have since won two of their last three.
Their most recent outing was a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, but before that, they managed to get into the win column with victories over the New Orleans Pelicans and these same Trail Blazers they’ll see Tuesday night.
Although Phoenix has plenty of talent in the backcourt, second-year stud Devin Booker has broken away from the pack in terms of productivity. The former Kentucky Wildcat has posted 38 and 39 points in his last two games, respectively, and he’s averaging 23 points, three rebounds and three assists per night.
If he can put up anything close to the high-30s he’s exploded for recently against Portland, the Suns will have a chance of not only getting the win against the spread, but straight up as well.
The Blazers have struggled defensively this season, meaning a high-scoring game is likely both in terms of Booker’s production as well as the point total for both squads.
Phoenix is dead last in terms of points allowed this season (113.3), but a top-10 team in scoring at 105.7 per night.
Portland Trail Blazers
Like Phoenix, the Trail Blazers are one-sided at this point in the year. Portland is just 25th in the NBA in points per game allowed (109.3), but it is sixth in points scored at 108.3 per night.
Also like Phoenix, the Blazers are led by a dynamic scoring guard.
Damian Lillard has made this early part of the 2016-17 season “Lillard Time.” He’s established that his new signature shot is apparently a jump shot from the half-court logo, and he’s done it en route to averaging 32 points per game.
He’s also proving to be something of a stat-sheet stuffer in his fifth season, collecting 5.7 rebounds and 4.9 assists while shooting an impressive 50.4 percent from the field and 40 percent from the three-point line.
Against Phoenix, expect Portland to try an old Suns tactic: Simply outscore the opponent. This contest is going to resemble a barn burner with no defense, so get ready for plenty of points on both ends.

Free Phoenix Suns vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Prediction:
The Trail Blazers have revenge on their mind, and they should get it with home-court advantage.
But with so many points to be scored on the horizon, and Booker’s hot streak still intact, don’t expect it to meet the 7.5 points set ahead of the contest.
