Wizards vs Suns Prediction and Odds
Wizards vs Suns Prediction: The Phoenix Suns are expected to win the upcoming game against the Washington Wizards as per the latest prediction.
Another mighty challenge awaits the Washington Wizards as they are set to meet the Phoenix Suns on the upcoming road trip Tuesday night. The Wizards have almost hit the rock bottom after 10 consecutive defeats. Unseld Jr. needs to find some way to bring Washington’s campaign on track. His game plan is already heavily criticized and discussions are on for his replacement after an extremely disappointing performance from the Wizards. They faced a 117-119 loss to the LA Lakers in the last game.
The Phoenix Suns will look to continue their dominance at home when they host the Wizards at the Footprint Center Arena in the upcoming matchup. The Suns have made a solid comeback after a frustrating stretch of losing fixtures. They would like to target a spot in the top 3 of the Western Conference with a win over the Wizards. Phoenix won the last game against the New Orleans Pelicans with a score of 118-114.
The Wizards managed to give a tough but couldn’t end their losing streak in the last game against the Lakers.
The Washington Wizards seemed to lack a perfect strategy to counter LeBron James who was looking more lethal in the absence of Davis. The last quarter turned out to be an interesting contest. An alley-oop dunk from Daniel Gafford helped the Wizards secure a 102-98 lead with 6:43 left. However, an 8-0 surge by the Lakers led by James’ 3-pointer put Washington on the back foot. The Lakers got a decisive lead which they managed to retain till the end of the game and handed another defeat to the Wizards.
Bradley Beal led the scoring for the Wizards. He finished with 29 points and 3 assists. Kyle Kuzma too tried his best and gave a key contribution of 22 points with 16 rebounds.
Devin Booker single-handedly led his side to an amazing comeback win against the Pelicans in the last fixture.
A spectacular show from the three-time All-Star, Devin Booker ensured Phoenix’s win despite a disastrous start. Booker added 58 points to his name with 6 rebounds and 5 assists and fought like a lone warrior for the Suns. The Suns got a poor start and went on a trail right from the opening minutes. The deficit grew to 24 points before the Suns came back in the third quarter. Phoenix leveled the points with 7:04 remaining before Booker’s amazing 23 points in a row which put them ahead.
Apart from a historic performance by Booker, Mikal Bridges looked decent and he finished the contest with 15 points and 3 rebounds.
