what to know

The Phoenix Suns will play at home against the Indiana Pacers on Sunday at 8:00 PM ET at the Footprint Center. Fresh off a win as the underdog, the Suns will enter this one as the favorite.

The Suns enter their tilt with the Pelicans on the back of three consecutive wins but they will enter their next game with four. Phoenix outshot New Orleans with points remaining on Friday and took the game 123-109. With the Suns leading the score to 100–80 by the end of the third, the Pelicans cut a deficit but never recovered from it.

Devin Booker was back to his usual excellent self, as he shot 6 for 11 from beyond the arc on his way to 52 points and 5 assists. Those 52 points set a new season-high mark for him. Another difference-maker was Kevin Durant, who scored 26 points with five rebounds.

Meanwhile, the point spread might have favored the Pacers last Friday, but the final result did not. They fell just behind Portland by a score of 118-115.

Despite their loss, the Pacers saw several players rise to the challenge and play remarkable games. Myles Turner, who made 6 of 10 shots from downtown and dropped a double-double with 29 points and 12 rebounds, was perhaps the best of all. In fact, it was the most points Turner had scored all season. Tyrese Haliburton was another key contributor, dropping a double-double on 21 points and 17 assists.

Even though they lost, the Pacers worked as a unit and finished the game with 34 assists (they are first in assists per game overall). They easily outscored their opponents in that department as the Trail Blazers dished out only 18 assists.

Phoenix has been on a great run lately: they have won nine of their last 12 games, giving them a nice 23-18 record this season. As for Indiana, their loss dropped their record to 24–18.

This is a contest where possession numbers are likely to be a big factor: The Suns haven’t given the ball away easily this season, averaging just 13.8 turnovers per game. However, it’s not like the Pacers struggle in that department as they are only averaging 13 turnovers per game. Given these competing forces, it will be interesting to see how they clash.

The Suns were able to pick up a convincing win over the Pacers when the teams last met in February 2023, winning 117-104. Will the Suns repeat their success, or will the Pacers have a better game plan this time? We will find out soon.
