A day after Chris Paul graduated from Winston-Salem State, the Phoenix Suns will host the New Orleans Pelicans in a Western Conference showdown. New Orleans is finally starting to click with Zion Williamson on the roster as the Pelicans are only one game out of first in the conference standings. Phoenix was leading the West for most of the season but it was slowed down by a recent five-game losing streak. The Suns did break up the streak by winning their last game against the Los Angeles Clippers 111-95. Mikal Bridges was the standout for Phoenix, scoring 27 points and Paul notched 15 points with 13 vintage assists.

It helped that Devin Booker came back to the lineup after missing two games with a hamstring injury. He scored 14 and while they may want more from their best player, his presence just breeds winning.
The Suns will need Booker even more tonight as they lost to New Orleans back-to-back in the midst of that five-game losing streak.
The Pels are trying to bounce back from back-to-back losses of their own against the Utah Jazz in their last couple. While New Orleans was blown out by Utah in the first game, the most recent game against the Jazz came down to overtime, losing 132-129.
