Phoenix Suns Team News 

The team, led by the great Monty Williams, entered this season very strong and they are currently on a 6-1 record and are the first in the West, in a series of 5 victories. The Suns, like last year, play quickly and fluently in attack, which is also reflected in their offensive rating. Along with the Golden State Warriors, they are the most efficient team in the league, scoring an average of 118.3 points per game this season.

The Suns did not change much this year, but they brought reinforcements that will bring width to this roster. Josh Okogie, Damion Lee and Jock Lanadle just arrived from Minnesota. The former Partizan center is playing great at the season opener, averaging 15 points for the Suns.

However, the main option for the Suns is the trio of Paul-Booker-Ayton, who will lead the team from Arizona to the top of the Western Conference this season. The Suns have a lot of width in both directions. The defense is held by Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson.

For the match against the Trail Blazers, they will be weakened by not playing Ayton, but the Suns have enough quality to make up for that absence. Cam Johnson played a career game against the Wolves, scoring 29 points in the Suns’ victory and leading the Arizona team to victory.

Phoenix Suns vs. Portland Trail Blazers Prediction 

Although this is the Western Derby, based on current standings and form, we think the Blazers will be much more weakened by not playing Lillard than the Suns by not playing Ayton. Width and quality, as well as the home field in this match, will make a difference, but so will the Suns’ desire to take revenge on the Blazers for the only defeat of the season.

For the Suns, there will be no starting center Ayton, as well as Wainright. While the already mentioned Lillard, Payton, Sarr, and Watford will not be there for the Blazers.
