Phoenix Suns Form & Team News


Phoenix took full advantage of an injury to Anthony Davis as they knocked out the defending champions.

The Suns took Game 1 of the series with the Los Angeles Lakers, but Davis took over in Games 2 & 3.

He went down injured in Game 3 though, and the Suns ruthlessly took advantage with a 100-92 win.

Devin Booker took over the series with 30 points in Game 5 and 47 points and 11 rebounds in Game 6.

Those performances were crucial to 115-85 and 113-100 wins that sent Phoenix into round two.

All-round consistency has been the key to them taking a 2-0 lead in this series.

All 5 starters have scored double figures in Games 1 & 2 and Phoenix have racked up 5 double doubles.

All of this has resulted in 122-105 and 123-98 wins that have put the Suns in control of the series.

Chris Paul has been particularly impressive, recording back-to-back double doubles as he continues to haunt Denver this season (91 points, 60 assists).

Paul has clearly overcome his shoulder problem, meaning Abdel Nader (knee - out) is the only man on the injury report.

Denver Nuggets Form & Team News


Denver took six games to get the better of Portland in round one – and they needed plenty of points too in a 4-2 series win.

The Nuggets averaged 120.8 points per game during that series.

Nikola Jokic played a starring role with five 30+ point games and three double doubles, but the Suns have done a good job on him in this series.

Jokic was held one rebound shy of another double double as his 22 points and 9 rebounds proved to be in vain in Game 1.

Denver fell to a 122-105 defeat to lose Game 1 for the second round in a row.

Jokic did return to his double double ways in Game 2 with 24 points and 13 rebounds.

He got very little help from the rest of the roster and as a result the Nuggets slumped to a 123-98 defeat that has them in trouble.

Jokic will be good to go here, but Denver will need a lot more from his supporting cast in Game 3.

That supporting cast will not feature PJ Dozier (groin) and Jamal Murray (knee), but Will Barton (hamstring) is expected to play on limited minutes again.
