Phoenix Suns vs Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets hope to choose up their fourth win once they tackle the Phoenix Suns on Halloween evening. It could actually be scary to see the staff lose to a dysfunctional franchise just like the Phoenix Suns.

The Brooklyn Nets are hoping to rebound from two unhealthy losses to the New York Knicks and Denver Nuggets over the weekend. Since a Three-2 begin, one which included a stunning upset over the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Nets have regarded overmatched of their previous two contests.
In final evening’s loss in opposition to the Denver Nuggets at residence, the Nets regarded totally overmatched. Nuggets star Nikola Jokic carved up Brooklyn to the tune of 21 factors and 14 assists. All 5 Nuggets starters scored in double figures.
 
The Nets struggled to get going offensively. Like Friday in opposition to the Knicks, the staff lacked power and performed flat. D’Angelo Russell struggled from the sector, going simply Three-12 to attain 12 factors. Spencer Dinwiddie was one of many lone shiny spots for Brooklyn, posting a line that included 22 factors, 4 rebounds, 4 assists and three steals.
At instances we noticed Kenny Atkinson play his two level guards on the ground collectively. That could be a good suggestion going up in opposition to the Phoenix Suns. Devin Booker, Phoenix’s excessive utilization celebrity, may have the inexperienced gentle to shoot as a lot as he likes. He could be a tricky project for Caris LeVert or Allen Crabbe.
Dinwiddie is a greater defender than these two and has continued to raise his play this season. Whereas he's unlikely to start out, he may see a lion’s share of minutes on Tuesday evening.
Apart from Booker, the Nets should concentrate on containing Phoenix’s athletic younger forwards. T.J. Warren and Marquese Chriss have the power to trigger issues for the Nets on the rim. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and the remainder of Brooklyn’s frontline should be diligent in staying in entrance of the younger Suns bigs.
Fortunately for the Nets, they are going to be enjoying a porous Suns protection. The Suns rank 29th in opponents’ factors per recreation, giving up over 117 factors per recreation. After all, the Nets are the one staff ranked worse defensively, hemorrhaging 118 factors per contest.
Given the futility of each of those groups defensively, this recreation figures to be a excessive scoring affair. If Brooklyn is ready to play its recreation and knock down Three-pointers at a excessive price, it figures to have a great probability of successful. After all it might be good for the staff to play some protection after being principally a turnstile relating to stopping different groups from scoring.

Prediction: Nets win a shootout, 133-128.
