Brooklyn Nets vs Phoenix Suns
The Suns just lost the game against the Wizards in a thrilling encounter with 3 overtimes and a lot of tension yet the came up short although they had several chances to get the win and extend their winning streak to 5 games. Booker played a huge 55 minutes, with Warren 53, Oubre 42 and Ayton 39!
The Nets have been in amazing from recently with 7 wins in their last 8 games and although they are coming from a loss at home against Indiana, they have a great chance to bounce back and do it with a big win today. Crabbe and LaVert won't dress up for this one.
The Suns found themselves in the same situation a couple of weeks ago, where they lost at home to the Clippers in overtime in the first game of a back-to-back set and then went on to be crushed by the Spurs on the road (116-86).
With Booker and Warren recently back from injuries, and 53 minutes on the court today, the Suns will have to make some decisions as to whether they will use or protect them and it would make sense to take it easy on Booker who has struggled with injuries over the last year. The Nets, who defeated the Suns easily on the road a month ago (104-82) have another great chance to get an easy win and they should take full advantage of that, the odds are expected to drop especially if Booker and any other players will take a rest for the Suns, so take it right away.
