Booker’s Suns In A Tight Spot
Although the Suns have remained near the top of the division standings, some factors have begun to take a toll on the team’s performance. The Suns are looking to break a three-game losing streak after winning three in a row.
Over their last five games, the Suns are 2-3. However, Phoenix has eight of its last eleven games overall and will be without Devin Booker on the court for tonight’s game. The Suns must still find a way to pull together a solid performance and start winning again.
Devin Booker has remained the most solid player on the Suns’ roster. Booker is now standing with 27.1 points and 5.6 assists per game.
Morant’s Grizzlies to Pick Up Winning Streak
The Grizzlies have also battled with inconsistency in recent games. Memphis is now 1-2 in their last three games and 2-3 in their previous five. This has deviated the Grizzlies from the recent winning streak that the Oklahoma City Thunder ended.
The Grizzlies went 7-0 before taking two of the most recent three defeats. A fall against the Denver Nuggets and the Golden State Warriors has taken the Grizzlies off course. However, there is always the intention to return to their winning ways.
In addition, there aren’t any factors that seem to prove that the Grizzlies are on a potential downfall. Ja Morant is still the top player for Memphis, with 26.8 points and 7.9 assists per game.
