What you need to know about the Suns

The Suns were just a bucket short of a win on Monday, dropping a heartbreaker against Memphis. Devin Booker nailed a 3-pointer to put Phoenix up by one point with 5.1 seconds remaining, but Memphis responded with a game-winning bucket on the other end. Booker finished with exactly 30 points for the second time in three games. 

He leads the team with 23.1 points per game and has scored at least 30 points on seven occasions. Booker was without big man Deandre Ayton and forward Jae Crowder against Memphis due to COVID-19 protocols. Ayton and Crowder are both questionable for Wednesday’s game. 

What you need to know about the Thunder

The Thunder were within striking distance against Sacramento on Tuesday, but they were unable to close the gap in a 117-111 loss. They had six players in the league’s health and safety protocols, including Josh Giddey, Tre Mann and Derrick Favors. Shooting guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander did the best he could to lead the team, scoring 33 points and dishing out five assists.

He has scored 30-plus points in consecutive games and is averaging 28.6 points over his last five outings. Oklahoma City is last in the NBA in points per game, averaging just 100.5 per contest. Mike Wilks takes over the coaching duties for the Thunder, as head coach Mark Daigneault is in COVID-19 protocol.
