They average 55.7 rebounds per game and that ranks 1st in the league. The final thing they will need to do is play better defense. They rank 20th in the league in opponent points as they give up an average of 101.5 points per game.

The final thing they will need to do is rebound the ball better. They average 51.9 rebounds per game ans that ranks 15th in the league.

 

My Prediction

Both of these teams want to make this a high scoring game. Whichever team gets the key defensive stops will have the best chance of winning.

I think that the game will be a high scoring game. I think that with home court advantage the Suns find a way to get the key defensive stops and win the game.

Final Score

Phoenix: 113
Houston: 106
