The Phoenix Suns host the Charlotte Hornets in an enticing NBA 2020-21 season matchup at Phoenix Suns Arena. The match will see rookie LaMelo Ball square off against veteran Chris Paul in what appears to be a thrilling battle.
The Charlotte Hornets lost to the Utah Jazz 132-110 in the last game and were helpless as they conceded 28 3-pointers in the process. By no means will it be easy for the Hornets to get back to winning ways against a team like Phoenix Suns. Coach Borrego will be hoping his side takes the positives from their loss against the Jazz and not get too complacent as the match progresses.
The Phoenix Suns are in a much better form compared to the Charlotte Hornets and have won three consecutive games going into this match. The Phoenix Suns beat the Trail Blazers 132-100 in a blowout win in their last game. Devin Booker was once again at the top of the scoring charts as he scored 34 points. The Suns have been a treat to watch this season and will go in as favorites into the match against the Charlotte Hornets.
