NBA New Orleans Pelicans vs Phoenix Suns – 18h30 04/24/2022 [PT]: Speak out to make a change.
The absence of the main goalscorer, Devin Booker in Game 3 away from home, has caused the Arizona Sun to face many difficulties. However, Chris Paul and Ayton increased the score of the BO7 to 2-1 for the defending runners-up. The Pelicans will be even more determined in the 4th survival match, when defeat will mean the end of their journey.
New Orleans Pelicans continued their sublimation momentum after winning 125-114 in Game 2 against the Suns and entered confidently from the tip-off moment. The score of 111-114 did not show the big gap between the two teams like the current 1st and 8th seed rankings. Phoenix Suns struggled against their opponents, especially in the second half, with the explosion of Ingram and CJ. They won, but it was a worry about the attack. If Booker continues to be unable to play in the next match, the Pelicans still has a chance to level the score.
New Orleans Pelicans vs Phoenix Suns Handicap
- Quarter 1: New Orleans Pelicans
- Quarter 2: Phoenix Suns
- Quarter 3: New Orleans Pelicans
- Quarter 4: Phoenix Suns
Phoenix Suns always insist they are superior to New Orleans Pelicans, when they have 7 wins in the last 10 encounters. In this season’s season, the Arizona Sun only had to receive 2 defeats in 7 matches played. The turning point of this matchup was the Suns without Devin Booker. About offensive, Pelican is slightly better than the opponent, with the pair of Ingram and CJ McCollum still playing stably. Both had over 30 points in the last Game 3. If they improve their defense, the Pelicans still have the opportunity to level the gap at home.
On the side of Phoenix Suns, Chris Paul and Ayton had to work at full capacity to win a precious victory. Last day of competition, CP3 had 28 points and 14 assists in the whole match. The stability on the offensive front of the Suns from Bridges or Crowder can still help them earn a high score in the next match. The Pelicans still lack the courage in the decisive moments to aim for the final victory, the Suns will still be the winners in this match at Game 4.
Phoenix Suns’ ability to score will continue to be reduced due to Devin Booker’s injury. Meanwhile, the Pelicans are not stable, but the explosion from Ingram and CJ is always present. The next match will probably head to the Under, on a match day where the Suns’ defense is good.
