New Orleans Pelicans vs Phoenix Suns Prediction and NBA Odds: Phoenix Suns is predicated to win tonight’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans as per the latest prediction.

The New Orleans Pelicans will be high on confidence when they host the Phoenix Suns for the third playoff clash tonight. After facing a defeat in the playoff opener, Willie Green’s men bounced back strongly in Game 2 against the top-seeded Suns.

It was Brandon Ingram’s day as he gave a brilliant all-around performance with 37 points, 11 rebounds, and 9 assists. In the post-game conference, Ingram talked about his team’s performance. He said:

“Everything was flowing. Everybody was effective on the floor, all five. All five made something happen, whether it was offensively or defensively. We were really connected today.”

The Phoenix Suns need to regroup before the next game after a frustrating Game 2. The hamstring injury of Devin Booker during the game seemed to be a big disadvantage for the Suns. He was playing very well in the first half and added 31 points to his name. However, Chris Paul said that Booker’s injury cannot be an excuse for the defeat. Paul said:

“We’ve got guys that are more than capable of stepping up,” Paul said. “Book was killing. He was having a big-time game, but it is what it is.”

The Suns need a complete effort in the next game and not let Booker’s absence hurt their campaign in the postseason. The Pelicans have no new injury concerns ahead of Game 3.
