The Charlotte Hornets host the Phoenix Suns of Devin Booker and company at Spectrum Center.
Coming off a huge beatdown in Milwaukee, the Hornets will try to bounce back in front of their fans against the Suns. Devonte Graham has been a pleasant surprise this year for James Borrego, leading the team in scoring with 18.2 Points per game, with Terry Rozier coming in close with 17.5 points. It was expected that Borrego’s team were one of the worst in the league, but that hasn’t come close to fruition for now. At the moment they’re in 8th place in the Eastern Conference, positioning themselves for a playoff spot. They have a five-game homestand on the way, and could gain some ground if they win most of these games, all against teams with a record .500 or below.
The Phoenix Suns started the season on a high note even with Ayton’s suspension, but have been falling on the standings lately. They’ve only won one game in their last five, against the struggling Timberwolves, but will look to get back to what made them have a great start. This upcoming road trip could prove to be crucial for playoff hopes, as they’ll have four games in six nights. Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson are both questionable for tonight’s game, on the other hand, Aron Baynes should suit up, giving the Suns a much needed presence downlow in Ayton’s absence.
Charlotte is a very inconsistent team as their game depends a lot on their three-point shooting percentage. If Phoenix gets back to form on the defensive end, they should be able to steal the win in Charlotte.
