Wednesday night will be a special night in the NBA. On the menu is a basketball delicacy NBA fans are rarely treated to. Dueling double-digit droughts. It is just the 6th time in NBA history this has occurred.
Yes, your Phoenix Suns, losers of 10 straight, invade Memphis to face a Grizzlies squad that has also dropped 10 in a row. Both teams have 18 wins on the season. The Suns are three up (or down, depending on how you want to look at it) in the loss column.
Sounds like there’s a possibility that Phoenix will have to take a crack at ending its skid (or extending depending on how you want to look at it) without forward T.J. Warren.
T.J. Warren questionable with contusion to tailbone. Happened on fall during Pelicans game. Also, Suns hoping to have Tyson Chandler back Friday but pointing to road trip for return— scott bordow (@sbordow) February 28, 2018
In the game against New Orleans, Warren played 42 minutes and scored 23 points on 9 of 21 shooting. For the season he’s averaging a career-high 19.5 points per contest and is second on the Suns in scoring.
A Warren absence would obviously mean Devin Booker and go ahead a take a million shots. But I’m sure if T.J. is unable to play, Phoenix will try really, really hard to get him back on the court as soon as possible. They’ll make it a top priority. I’m sure.
Suns at Grizzlies, tonight. Someone is extending a 10-game losing streak, and someone is going to be disappointed. Tip is at 5p PT. Plan accordingly.
