Who’s Playing

Phoenix @ New Orleans

Current Records: Phoenix 54-14; New Orleans 28-40

What to Know

The New Orleans Pelicans’ homestand continues as they prepare to take on the Phoenix Suns at 8 p.m. ET March 15 at Smoothie King Center. These two teams are sauntering into the matchup backed by comfortable wins in their prior games.

The Pelicans took their contest against the Houston Rockets on Sunday by a conclusive 130-105 score. The game was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point New Orleans had established a 98-72 advantage. They can attribute much of their success to center Jonas Valanciunas, who posted a double-double on 32 points and ten boards.

Meanwhile, Phoenix made easy work of the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday and carried off a 140-111 win. The matchup was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 79-56. The Suns relied on the efforts of center Deandre Ayton, who dropped a double-double on 23 points and 16 rebounds, and shooting guard Devin Booker, who posted a double-double on 30 points and ten dimes.

Their wins bumped the Pelicans to 28-40 and Phoenix to 54-14. With both New Orleans and Phoenix swaggering in after impressive performances, it will be interesting to see which team steps up to teach the other some humility.
