The Suns have a nice two week home stand coming up. First they get the Timberwolves who are red hot after knocking off the Indiana Pacers. That 15 game losing streak that Phoenix nearly helped them end at 12 is firmly in the rear view mirror. Then we get the final of four matchups with the Lakers. Why can't we play the Lakers every game?
Who loves the Timberwolves?
Goran Dragic. The Dragon ate good, real good in the first game against the Timberwolves this season. It was the third best scoring night of the season for Dragic, 11 of 16 shots for 25 points. It was also his second best shooting night when attempting more than 11 shots this season.
Who hates the Timberwolves?
Markieff Morris. Not his worst game of the season by a long shot but when you pair his underwhelming shooting (5 of 13 from the field) with his paltry rebounding total (3), it was a forgettable game for Morris.
Who loves the Lakers?
Isaiah Thomas. Two of IT's top 5 scoring nights this season came against the Lakers. In the third, it's hard to argue with his productivity. Thomas hit 4 of 7 shots, including both tries from behind the arc for 15 points in 25 minutes.
Who hates the Lakers?
Gerald Green. Ok, bear with me. Really nobody on the Suns plays particular poorly against the Lakers. In fact, Green's third highest scoring performance of the season was an 11 of 19, 26 point effort on November 4th. The other two games were clunkers though, two of his ten games this season scoring in single digits. In those games he was a collective 4 of 18 from the field.
Who loves the Suns?
Andrew Wiggins. The first game against Phoenix was perhaps the best game of his young career given the competition. 10 of 16 from the field and tied with Goran Dragic for a game high 25 on January 7th.
Jeremy Lin. Lin has played well against the Suns this season. Two of his top four scoring totals this season have come against Phoenix. Lin scored 18 against the Suns on November 4th, and 19 on December 28th.
Who hates the Suns?
Gorgui Dieng. His worst night shooting the rock when attempting more than 7 shots this season came against the Suns. 3 of 10 from the field for 8 points against Phoenix.
Wesley Johnson. The numbers aren't terrible, just easy to dismiss. He's only scored in double figures once in three games, 14 on December 28th. The other two games Johnson shot a combined 3 of 11.
