A victory for the Phoenix Suns would push them above even, but the New Orleans Pelicans are definitely not making it easy for them. After three quarters neither squad has the matchup in the bag, but Phoenix leads 81-79.
The Suns have been riding high on the performance of center Deandre Ayton, who has dropped a double-double on 28 points and 11 rebounds. New Orleans has been led by small forward Brandon Ingram, who so far has 23 points in addition to seven boards.
The Pelicans haven’t lost 85% of the games in which they were down heading into the final period this year, so a win here would be refreshing.
