The NBA Regular Season has turned its heels in the final parts of the season and soon we will hit the Postseason. A losing phase during the current window can be dangerous for the teams just on the edge of the top-six First Round Playoffs spots. One of those teams in the dangerous territory, the Phoenix Suns is going to take on the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Suns continued their losing trail against the Kings and slumped 127:135 despite a 32 points outburst by Devin Booker. Booker has scored 30 or more in five of the last six games but despite that, they have lost five of their last six games. Because of that, they have slipped to 38 wins and 35 losses. They are in contention for a top-six spot but they haven’t had a strong season. The team awaits the return of Kevin Durant and also Deandre Ayton, as they both need them desperately. How will the Suns respond in the last few games in what can be a tricky window?
The 76ers enter the fray after losing 112:120 against the Warriors despite a 46 points, nine rebounds, and eight assists monster night in absence of James Harden. The 76ers have lost two of their last three games but in an extended window, they have managed nine wins in eleven games. Such windows have been commonplace for the 76ers which have managed 49 wins and 24 losses. Harden and Embiid have given championship hopes and an experienced lineup that has impressive players like Harris, Melton, Maxey, and other role players can end up with something special.
Expert Betting Tips
James Harden is a Game-Time Decision and that designation means a lot. If he plays then the Suns will have their hands full. They are already out of touch and Embiid is going to torch them further as they don’t have their dependable big Deandre Ayton. Anyway, I’d back Booker to come up with a sensational performance and predict a 115:109 scoreline in favor of the Phoenix Suns.
