The model knows the Suns (26-5) are one of the league’s top teams on both ends of the court. Phoenix scores almost 112 points per game (third in NBA) and allows 104 (fourth). It is third in the NBA in opponent shooting percentage (43.3) while hitting 47.7 percent from the field (second). Devin Booker scored 30 points in a 113-101 win against Oklahoma City on Thursday, and Deandre Ayton had 19 points and 12 rebounds. Booker (23.3) is the leading scorer, while Ayton averages a double-double (17 points, 11.3 boards).
The model also has considered that Golden State (26-6) has Stephen Curry, and it has continued to win despite being shorthanded with Andrew Wiggins (protocol) and Jordan Poole (protocols) both out. Curry scored 46 points on Thursday night in a victory against Memphis, hitting eight three-pointers. Gary Payton Jr. had 22 points and hit a key three late in the fourth, and Draymond Green had nine assists. Curry leads the Warriors at 27.7 points per game, while Green averages 7.4 assists.
