Preview

New Orleans Pelicans will be meeting Phoenix Suns on Sunday in New Orleans, This will be the fourth game in the first round in this matchup as phoenix Suns are leading 2-1 after 3 games so far. New Orleans Pelicans won game 2 in Phoenix and now Phoenix have beaten the Pelicans in New Orleans and the Pels will try to even the score in this game.

Phoenix Suns are doing just fine in this playoffs series without Booker for now as D'Andre Ayton and Chris Paul stepped up big time in game 3 to give Phoenix the win. Phoenix shot 50% from the field but they had a terrible 3 pointers shooting with only 15%, Ayton was the best player in the game scoring a double double with 28 points, 17 rebounds and 1 Assist, Chris Paul also had a special game with 28 points and 14 Assists double double. Phoenix will try to win yet another game in New Orleans but they will have to shoot the 3 better to make the game easier.

New Orleans Pelicans were that close to take the lead in this series, the Pels lost by 3 points in this game as Ingram and McCollum both had 30+ points but they weren't enough to get the job done vs this strong Phoenix team. The Pels shot 48% from the field and 34% from the 3 pointers and one of the reasons they hung out in the game till the end was that they out rebounded phoenix 45-35 but they will have to do more than that to get back to this series with a win.

Prediction

Phoenix Suns took the lead in game 3 away from home after a thrilling 3 points win in New Orleans will make the Suns play with no pressure especially that they will be without Devin Booker still for some time. New Orleans were trailing by 11 points by the Halftime but they came back in the 3rd quarter to make the game competitive till the end. I like Phoenix to win this game too, they are the better team and I think the line is short coming down from 10.5 in game 1 to 2.5 in this game so give me the Suns.

Pick: Phoenix Suns -2.5 (-110)
