The Phoenix Suns invade the Barclays Center to take on the Brooklyn Nets tonight.
The Suns were really struggling with five losses from six games, but they were able to arrest a four-game slide with a nice 107-102 win at Toronto on Tuesday. Eric Bledsoe and Mirza Teletovic led the scoring with 20 points each, Brandon Knight and Jon Leuer added 16 points each while TJ Warren had 15 as the Suns snuck past the Raptors who were riding a four-game win streak. With the much-needed win, Phoenix moves one step closer back to .500 with a record of 8-9 overall and 3-4 on the road
The Suns snapped a four-game losing streak Sunday, beating the Toronto Raptors 107-102. Phoenix averages the third-most points in the league (106.5) and has scored at least 100 points in four of its last five games.
Eric Bledsoe drives the bus for the Suns’ offense, leading the team with 22.6 points and 6.2 assists per game, but also gets it done defensively, leading the team in steals (1.8) and blocks (0.7) per game. Bledsoe is coming in hot off a 20-point, 11-rebound and three-block performance against the Raptors on Sunday.
The Brooklyn Nets have won three straight games at Barclays Center, beating the Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics and most recently the Detroit Pistons, 87-83 on Sunday night. The Nets will play 20 home games in December and January – 10 in each month – the most of any NBA team over that span. The Nets are 3-3 in Brooklyn this season and the six home games to date are the second-fewest in the Association.
The Nets have won three of their last four home games against the Phoenix Suns.
The Nets had lost four of five before their 87-83 win over the Pistons on Tuesday. Thaddeus Young led the scoring with 19 points, 10 rebounds and three assists, Brook Lopez added 15 points, nine rebounds and six blocks while Joe Johnson had 13 points as the Nets won despite scoring just 35 points in the first half. Defensively, the Nets couldn’t do much to stop Andre Drummond who dominated the paint with 20 points and 18 rebounds, but they did a great job of holding the rest of the Pistons to 30.5 percent shooting and in particular, Reggie Jackson who shot just 4 of 20 for his eight points. With the win, Brooklyn improves to 4-13 on the season and 3-3 at home.
