Phoenix Suns will lock horns against LAC in NBA 2021-22 on Friday, 07 January 2022 at 08:30 AM IST
The Phoenix Suns have several players who have exited virus protocols but will still be unable to play as they ramp up their conditioning.
They will have the decided edge ainthey will still be led by Chris Paul and Devin Booker.
The Suns are on yet another two-game winning streak and continue to play savvy basketball with impressive chemistry.
Chris Paul’s ability to lead a decimated team has really shone in the last few games. The “Point God” is even making new recruit Bismack Biyombo look like he should have never been out of the NBA.
The Boston Celtics and the Brooklyn Nets are just two teams who went home disappointed after underestimating the LA Clippers without Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.
Ty Lue’s team has been punching more than their weight as they are playing without any expectations. They could pose some trouble with a makeshift lineup if the Phoenix Suns take them lightly.
Luke Kennard and Ivica Zubac, who have been quite steady without the LA Clippers’ All-Stars will also sit out.
The Hollywood squad will have to rely on veterans Reggie Jackson, Serge Ibaka, Eric Bledsoe and Marcus Morris Sr. to get another win over the Suns.
The Phoenix Suns are playing as well as any team that is battling a spate of injuries and virus protocols.
Without several of their regular players in the lineup, they have stuck to their brand of basketball that has made them elite this season.
The Suns rotate the ball very well despite a compromised unit on the floor. They have managed to survive on the scoring prowess of Devin Booker and the leadership and clutch game of Chris Paul.
Head coach Monty Williams and staff should also be commended for adding Bismack Biyombo to the team.
Without Deandre Ayton and JaVale McGee, he has provided interior defense, hustle and energy on both ends of the floor.
Paul, running the plays, is also facilitating easy buckets for Biyombo. There’s no doubt that they are the favored team in this game.
