West 1st Round – Game 4, PHX leads series 2-1

 

The Phoenix Suns will try to take Game 4 against the Pelicans at Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana on Sunday evening. The Suns proved that they have enough armaments in their arsenal to make up for SG Devin Booker’s temporary loss to a hamstring issue. 

 

PG Chris Paul scored 19 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter, delivering the goods where it is needed most. Paul scored 15 of Phoenix’s first 23 points of the final quarter and had 14 assists.

 

Center Deandre Ayton made 28 points and snatched 17 rebounds off the glass. SF Mikal Bridges had 17 points while backup Center JaVale McGee scored 15 points on 7-of-8 shooting mostly on dimes from Paul.

 

The Suns are gaining momentum moving in the right direction at 39-13 in Western Conference play. Phoenix ranks second from rainbow territory in the Western Conference shooting at 36.4% from 3-point range. Unfortunately, they’ll be missing their leading scorer with 26.8 ppg, 46.6% in FG shooting, and 86.8% from the charity stripe.

 

The Phoenix Suns are 5-5 in their last 10 outings averaging 110.5 points, 42.4 rebounds, 26.7 assists, 9.1 steals, and 4.0 blocks per game while shooting 46.7% from the field. Their opponents averaged 112.1 points. 

 

  • The Phoenix Suns are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 matches with the Pelicans.
  • Phoenix is 6-2 SU in their last 8 games against New Orleans.
  • The Suns are 14-4 SU in their last 18 games down the road.

Phoenix Suns vs New Orleans Pelicans Predictions 4/24/2022

 

Meanwhile, the New Orleans Pelicans are fortifying their defenses for the coming onslaught of Game 4. Even without Suns SG Devin Booker, New Orleans cannot just rely on 2 star players in SF Brandon Ingram and SG CJ McCollum to carry them across the next encounter.

 

Their recent loss to a score of 111-114, Friday night saw Ingram pour in 34 points with McCollum following with 30. The Pelicans will give their all in this crucial point of the playoffs.

 

The Pelicans will look to level the series and are 25-27 against Western Conference teams. New Orleans is 18-32 against opponents with a winning record. Center Jonas Valanciunas is the leading scorer of the team with 17.8 ppg, 54.4% from the field, and 82.0% from the FT line.

 

The Pels split their last 10 outings averaging 113.7 points, 43.8 rebounds, 24.4 assists, 9.1 steals, and 3.4 blocks per game while shooting 46.7% from the field. Their opponents averaged 114.7 points per game.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of New Orleans’ last 6 games at home.
  • The total went OVER in 7 of New Orleans’ last 7 games when playing at home against Phoenix.
  • New Orleans is 12-6 ATS in their last 18 games against an opponent in the Pacific Division division.

Phoenix Suns vs  New Orleans Pelicans. The NBA pick is the Phoenix Suns. New Orleans has no answer to Phoenix’s depth on the bench. They need Ingram and McCollum to play at an elite level nightly, and even that may not be enough to win another game. That is what happened in Game 3.

 

The Suns gave them another plus with its poor 15.4% shooting from 3, but that did not help them either. The Phoenix crew chipped in to help lift their team into a Booker-less mode. Expect that to happen again with the Suns taking Game 4 to a predicted score of 113-109.
