Although the newly worked format of the NBA 2019-20 season had accorded Phoenix Suns one last chance to show their worth, few had envisaged any serious claim from the side for a spot in the playoffs. However, the club not only dismissed all notions in the bubble round but currently holds the best record of all the teams partaking in the seeding round across the two conferences.
Stunning and silencing their naysayers with five wins in succession, Phoenix Suns now find themselves on the cusp of making it into the play in round. Such has been the side’s grit and determination that the team can even lay claim on the 8th seed with the side’s incredible rampant run seeing them a meagre two wins behind Memphis Grizzlies.
Its form the side will be wanting to take forward into its culminating three outings as well as it looks to see its endeavours translate into fruition. The latest test awaiting the Suns today comes in the form of Oklahoma City Thunder, a side which ended up handing out a battering to Eastern Conference’s Washington Wizards yesterday.

Dream 11 Picks
He was in our side yesterday and Chris Paul will feature for us once again. The Oklahoma City Thunder point guard was responsible for yet again guiding his side to a win as his well endowed traits saw him deliver a well rounded 13 points, 9 assist and 6 rebound performance on the day.
18 points, 7 assists and 6 rebounds for the enigmatic Shai Gilgeous-Alexander see him join up with Paul. The two have moved in unison all season long to take their side into the playoffs, a partnership whose ability to transition outside the circle has seen them move full use of the corners.
Luguentz Dort makes a foray into our side as well from the club with the player enduring a breakthrough season for the side currently. The bubble has seen him earn a spot in the side’s shooting arounds, one which he utilised fully to deliver 9 points and 10 rebounds yesterday.
Phoenix Suns’ top scorer in the league, Devin Booker is fast earning stature as one of the finest players to have played for the club. With 26.6 ppg, he’s emerged as a crucial component of his side’s march towards the play in stage to make him rightful of the first pick from the club.
Jevon Carter will join up with him with the shooting guard getting 20 minutes in every affair, ones he’s utilised to shoot his offhanded shots.
One area Oklahoma have had an issue all across the season is blocking the treys. It’s a plight which will see Mikal Bridges thrive today with the Phoenix Suns small forward opening the zone up for himself to line up the shots from the midrange.
Shooting 23 points and 7 rebounds for himself in the bygone encounter, Darius Bazley makes for a must have pick from Oklahoma today. The player utilised his crossovers and handles to leave the opposition in a tizzy as he jostled his way through to a string of points in the paint.
While his 18.8 ppg were more than enough to see us opt for the pick of Deandre Ayrton, it’s his 11.4 rpg which are really doing the trick for the club at the moment. This player’s gallant regimes have seen him clobber sides and leave them skewed when trying to score past him.
His panache in shooting from the deep makes Booker a prudent option as our star player while Paul is the pro player.
