NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
Phoenix: Deep without Book too
With the absence of Devin Booker, you lose 25-30 points per game. So what? You have bench players like Cameron Johnson, Payne, and Shamet more than making up for it and can notch around 45-55 points regularly. With Ayton and Bridges in the fray, Suns can mount up 30-35 points or so while Crowder is a solid defender. McGee completes the frontline depth and there is no surprise that the Suns are rolling right now. Their defense with players like Paul, Bridges, Crowder, and Ayton can’t be taken lightly either
Warriors: Primetime team with superb depth as well
Without Klay in the picture, the Warriors have mounted up an intimidating campaign. Curry is Curry, he gets 25-35 points regularly. But it is Poole who has stepped up for big-time scoring, averaging around 20. Wiggins continues to pound 18-25 points consistently while Draymond is the Point Forward who can dish out assists even more times than Curry. Otto Porter Jr. has scored in double figures during three straight games while a dependable defender like Kevin Looney can hustle out for the Warriors. The Warriors are loaded with offensive talent and can deploy a hard-nosed defense as well.
