Underachieving Suns

There is no doubt that one of the biggest disappointments in the National Basketball Association this season has been the Phoenix Suns. The Suns are starting to heat up a little bit, as they have won back to back games, but those wins snapped a three game losing streak. In the three losses, the Suns scored just 107 points per game.

On the season, Phoenix is putting up 115.3 points per game. The Suns are 15th in the league in rebounds per game, with 44. The Suns are making nearly 12 three point shots per game as well. Kevin Durant leads the team with 29.8 points per game, while Devin Booker is adding 27.4.  Bradley Beal is in his first season with the Suns, and is fourth with 13.4 per game, while playing just 7 of the 31 games. In the win over the Magic, Durant led the team with 31 points.

The Suns are at home on Wednesday against the Clippers, and Friday against the Heat. Phoenix remains at home for a game against the Grizzlies on Sunday.

Portland Seeking More Offense

Portland is one of the lowest scoring teams in all of the NBA. The Trail Blazers are scoring just 109.4 points per game. The Trail Blazers are one of the worst shooting teams in the league as well, making less than 44% of their shots. Portland is 25th in the league with 41.8 rebounds per game.

The top scorer on the team is Anfernee Simons. Simons is scoring 27.1 per game, but has played in just 11 games this season. Jerami Grant is second on the team with 22.4 points per game as well.

Portland is on the road for the start of a seven game road trip. The Trail Blazers have back to back games at Dallas after this, before heading toe Brooklyn and New York, before finishing at Oklahoma City and Minnesota.

Suns Shine Bright

The Phoenix Suns are going to win this game, and win it easily. Sure, it’s the second of a back to back, but that is not going to matter. The Suns are determined to get back on track, and getting their fourth win in a row would go a long way for them.

Big night for the big dogs for the Suns, and they blowout Portland. Take the Phoenix Suns -11.5 over the Portland Trail Blazers in this game on Monday.
