The Philadelphia 76ers face the Phoenix Suns tonight at the Talking Stick Resort Arena. Ben Simmons & Co. will try to extend his perfect record as the team opened the season with 5-0 run to lead the Eastern Conference.
The Suns have been a good surprise in the beginning of the season, winning 4 of the 6 matches played so far in the league. The team is on a 2-game winning streak and despite losing DeAndre Ayton for 25 matches due to suspension, they managed to perform at a high level. With a strong back court composed by Ricky Rubio and Devin Booker, and a very talented young core with good options like Kelly Oubre Jr. and Frank Kaminsky, Phoenix will have a difficult match up tonight against one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference. At home, Phoenix won 2 of the 3 matches played so far, with one of them coming as a big surprise against the LA Clippers. The only 2 defeats Phoenix has were very tight matches against strong contenders, namely the Denver Nuggets away in ovetime and the Utah Jazz at home for just 1 point.

Philadelphia will try to extend their 100% winning record in the NBA (5-0) as they visit the Phoenix Suns tonight. This game marks the final match of Joel Embiid's suspension as the center was penalized by the NBA due to the altercation with Minessota's center Karl Anthony Towns. The No. 20 overall pick Matisse Thybulle, who leads the NBA in steals per game (2.8) will continue to start in Embiid's place. Despite having a perfect record, the Sixers faced strong opposition away from home, with all of the 3 wins under 6 points of difference.
