After winning four of five under interim head coach Jay Triano, the Suns encountered big-time roadblocks in Kristaps Porzingis and then the Spurs themselves. After Sunday night’s loss in San Antonio, Phoenix is back in the comfortable confines of Talking Stick Resort Arena as they battle Brooklyn.

Triano will continue to roll with the usual starters for the time being: Mike James, Devin Booker, TJ Warren, Marquese Chriss, and Tyson Chandler.

Speaking of Booker, if he scores 6 points tonight he will become the 4th fastest player to reach 3,000 points, trailing only LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Carmelo Anthony.

What are your predictions for tonight's game? Either way, expect an up-and-down contest with D’Angelo Russell and the Nets in town as both teams rank in the top five in overall pace.
