What you need to know about the Suns

The Suns didn’t have too much breathing room in their contest with the Sacramento Kings on Monday, but they still walked away with a 109-104 victory. The squad ran away with 67 points in the first half and mostly just sat on those in the second to pick up the win. Point guard Cameron Payne and small forward Mikal Bridges were among the main playmakers for Phoenix as the former had 24 points and the latter had 16.

Phoenix will be shorthanded on Wednesday as it is missing starting center Deandre Ayton (leg) and his backup in Dario Saric (knee). But the team still revolves around its backcourt of Chris Paul and Devin Booker. Paul currently leads the NBA with 11.3 assists per game, while ranking third with 2.3 steals per game. Booker, meanwhile, leads the team with 23.8 points per game.

What you need to know about the Trail Blazers

Meanwhile, Portland came up short against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday, falling 117-109. Despite its defeat, Portland got to see several of its players rise to the challenge and make noteworthy plays. Shooting guard Norman Powell, who shot 5-for-6 from beyond the arc and finished with 23 points, was the best among equals.

It had to be encouraging for the Blazers to see Damian Lillard drop a season-high of 27 points versus the Clippers. Lillard is off to the worst start of his career as he’s struggled with his shot early on. He is shooting career-lows in both field-goal percentage (36.5) and 3-point percentage (25.5).
