New Orleans vs Phoenix: prediction for the NBA match
New Orleans Pelicans
New Orleans managed to surprise everyone. After a defeat in the first match of the series Willie Green's men managed to win the second one. Brandon Ingram put up an outstanding performance that night. He scored 37 points, collected 11 rebounds and gave nine assists. His performance inspired the Louisiana team to a 125:114 victory.
However, team was unable to extend the success in the third match of the series. Pelicans suffered a narrow defeat to the Suns (111:114). Ingram put up an incredible performance once again, scoring 34 points. C.J. McCollum also added 30 points, but it was not enough for a victory.
Booker had to miss the third match of the series due to a strained harmstring. Phoenix leader is now out for 2-3 weeks. It is a huge blow for the Arizona team.
Phoenix edged a victory in the previous match of the series. Chris Paul and DeAndre Ayton were crucial parts of team's success. Each one of those players scored 28 points. Ayton also collected 17 rebounds.
Suns managed to beat that total in three latest matches
Lithuanian player averages 20,8 points per game in matches against the Suns
Booker's absence should be a great chance for the Pelicans, plus this game will be held at New Orleans. Hosts should be able to beat the Suns. DeAndre Ayton and Chris Paul can't shine forever, they will probably perform not so great tonight.

Each of two latest head-to-head matches between New Orleans and Phoenix were high-scoring. Pelicans are always playing offensively, so we are expecting another exciting match.
