The Sun’s they had some turbulence in their first two matches of the campaign, losing one and winning another, however, they managed to record very comfortable victories in their last two appearances, thus entering this game with a 3-1 record and with the intention of continuing improving that record.

After beating the Clippers, the Suns did the same against the current NBA champions, the Warriors, in a game in which their rival lost his temper in important moments, something that gave the Suns the opportunity to win a comfortable 105-134 victory, with a huge Devin Booker who registered 34 points and 7 assists, while Chris Paul was much more active and contributed 16 points and 9 assists.

BETS FOR PELICANS vs. SUNS
The New Orleans Pelicans have done a good job this season so far, however, they are not in their best condition due to the injuries they are dealing with, given that they will not have an important player like Ingram, and probably not Williamson and McCollum either. . To darken that picture even more, the Suns arrive with their squad almost intact, and with a Booker on fire, in addition to seeing a Paul who is gradually picking up pace.
So, this time I think the best option is to hope that the Suns dominate things from the beginning and take a comfortable win.
