Phoenix Suns: news and form
Phoenix has had the ideal season so far: leaders of the Western Conference with 3 wins ahead of the Warriors, 2nd, and already 7 over the Grizzlies, 3rd, Monty Williams’ players have been undefeated for 10 games now, having notably defeated the Jazz (115-109), the Mavericks (101-109) or even the Timberwolves (134-124). If Brooklyn seems like a much more dangerous team on paper, the Nets have been in trouble lately and the Suns will want to take advantage of it. For this, they will rely on an attack in great shape, 3rd offensive force in the NBA with an average of 112.9 points per game this season, but also on their defensive solidity, Phoenix being the 7th best defense in the league with 105 points against. meet. Very solid at home with 21 wins and 5 losses, the players of Monty Williams will want to perfect their record, when they had already won against Brooklyn (113-107) this season.
Suns: players to watch
The duo formed by Devin Booker and Chris Paul is still as efficient as ever and has a lot to do with the very good dynamics of the Suns. The first is still as efficient with 25.1 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.4 assists in 33.7 minutes, while the second, recently named player of the week, is in great shape and is running at 17.9 points and 11.7 assists in his last 10 meetings, making him the season’s leading passer with 10.3 assists per game since the league opener.
Brooklyn Nets: news and form
The Nets are in a very different dynamic: winners only 4 times in the last 10 meetings, Brooklyn remains on 4 consecutive defeats, the last to date against Golden State (110-106), and must imperatively win in order not to see the top of the ranking slip away from him. Steve Nash’s players have indeed been left behind by Chicago and Miami, respectively leader and 2nd in the East, who have 2 successes in advance. Solid on the outside this season with 17 wins in 24 games, the Nets will want to relaunch in Phoenix before making another 3 trips. They will rely for this on their good offensive performances since the start of the season, while Brooklyn is the 5th best attack in the NBA with 111.9 points scored on average per game. It will still be necessary to do much better defensively, the New York franchise being only the 18th defense in the league with 110 points conceded per game this season.
Nets: players to watch
Still deprived of Kevin Durant, Steve Nash may also have to compose without James Harden, essential this season with 23 points, 8.1 rebounds and 10.1 assists in 37 minutes, but uncertain after being hit in the hand. This meeting being played in Phoenix, Kyrie Irving should be available, the unvaccinated point guard from Brooklyn turning in 24.5 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.4 assists in 8 games played this season. Patty Mills should also be present and will try to bring his stone to the building, he who compiles 17.8 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists on average over the last 10 games.
In great shape, the Suns should logically take the upper hand over a struggling Brooklyn team and risk being deprived of Kevin Durant as James Harden. A victory for Phoenix therefore seems quite likely.

Chris Paul is in great shape and remains on an impressive performance against Spurs with 20 points and 19 assists. Faced with a suffering Nets defense, the point guard should have fun and we can expect to see him put in another very solid performance.
