Preseason Open Thread: Phoenix Suns vs. New Zealand Breakers

After facing off against the Brisbane Bullets last season, it’s the New Zealand Breakers as their international competition in preseason.

NBA: Preseason-Sacramento Kings at Phoenix Suns Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

After a fun preseason opener against the Sacramento Kings, the Suns are back in action on Wednesday night against the New Zealand Breakers.

In this game, I expect to see plenty of run for players like Dragan Bender, Davon Reed, De’Anthony Melton and Richaun Holmes as they try to what more they with their depth. Unless the Breakers somehow keep this close, Phoenix should be well ahead by halftime allowing Deandre Ayton and Josh Jackson to rest.

Speaking of Ayton, who in the world is going to guard him? He might get a double-double with ease in the first half.

This is the first game on TV as it will be on Fox Sports Arizona to kick off their season-long coverage of the Suns.

Probable Suns starters: Shaquille Harrison, Josh Jackson, Trevor Ariza, Ryan Anderson, and Deandre Ayton.
