Phoenix Suns vs Portland Trail Blazers (By: Miyagi)
The Suns are in deep trouble at the moment, playing through injuries and things just became even worse for them as their second top scorer TJ Warren (18p) is confirmed unavailable for this game, along with third top scorer C Ayton (16.4p) and one of the few that could cover for Ayton's absence in the paint, Holmes.
The Blazers come from a bitter loss to the Thunders which ended their 3 win streak and they will be looking to bounce back against the weakest team of the West, which also is heavily banged up today. The Blazers have not been great on the road but today they face a much-much weaker side and they can't waste opportunities like this one, especially considering the huge competition for the playoff spots in the Western Conference, so they are not expected to get any complacent at all today.
As for the Suns, well they have been very poor at home whether they play at full strength or not, but with Booker and partially Oubre being their only two quality players, Booker will have to do something amazing today but the way the Suns defend and with their huge struggle inside the paint since they miss two key players, even some heroics from Booker won't be enough. The lines are decent, I expected a much higher one.
