Phoenix Are Controlling the Glass

The Phoenix Suns are on a comfortable little three-game winning streak over their past three matches. While their offensive stats remain impressive, their ability to win the rebounding battle has been key to their success.

Over their last three, the Suns have won the rebounding battle by an average of 48 to 42.7 They also collected 9.7 offensive rebounds per game over those three matches.

They’ll have their hands full with the size of Ball, Ingram, Williamson, and Adams facing off against them. If they hope to control the glass again in this match, it’ll need to be a team effort. Rather than any one individual brilliance.


Editor’s Picks


New Orleans Must Improve their End Product

The New Orleans Pelicans are stacked with talent across their first five. From scoring ace Brandon Ingram to athletic marvel Zion Williamson, you wonder why they’ve struggled so much.

Most signs point to their inexperience. In their recent loss to the Sacramento Kings, the Pelicans capitulated in the fourth quarter by being outscored 31 to 15 in the final frame.

The Pelicans are lacking experience, but they won’t receive a break against the Suns. At 7-12, ranking them 14th in the Western Conference, the Pelicans must dig themselves out of their early hole. If they can put together a solid fourth quarter, it’d be a step in the right direction.

Suns Key Player: (G) Chris Paul

Despite his relatively advanced age, Chris Paul has shown time and time again that he can still carry a team. His recent performance against the Mavericks was evidence of that.

In their 109-108 win over the Mavericks, Paul put on a vintage show. The Suns point guard posted 34 points and nine assists on 14 of 20 shooting from the field and four of seven shooting from deep.

While his raw scoring output has lessened, Paul’s sudden scoring outbursts are more than welcome. When Paul threatens in different areas than just passing on offence, the Suns are a dangerous team.

Pelicans Key Player: (G) Eric Bledsoe

Eric Bledsoe may find himself on a weaker team after leading the Milwaukee Bucks at point guard last season, but he’s been having the season of his career in his first stint with the Pelicans.

Bledsoe’s largest strides come in the shooting department. Once considered a poor shooter, Bledsoe is now shooting 39.2% from deep while hitting 2.2 three-point field goals per game.

His newfound range is welcome for the Pelicans and would be an excellent threat against the pesky Phoenix Suns defense.
