On a Wednesday day in the NBA where up to nine games will be played, Phoenix Suns and Cleveland Cavaliers will face each other in the last game of the night. Kevin Durant and Darius Garland, in the absence of Donovan Mitchell, will be the stars of the game.
The Cavs are the visitors in a game they are coming into on their second night of back-to-back, and after beating the Utah Jazz. The Ohio franchise is 3rd in the Eastern Conference with a 46-30 record, and remains confident of overtaking the Milwaukee Bucks, 2nd at 47-28, by taking advantage of the Wisconsin Cavs' surprising loss to the Washington Wizards.
The Suns, meanwhile, still need to win to keep the Los Angeles Lakers (9th at 43-33) at bay. The Arizona franchise is 8th with a 44-31 record, having dropped one spot due to last night's win by the Sacramento Kings who are 7th with the same record.
Expert predictions (Possible lineups and result).
The main predictions for tonight's game have the Phoenix Suns slightly ahead of the Cleveland Cavaliers to win. The Cavs are visitors and also playing their second night of back-to-back, so a priori they start at a disadvantage.

  • Suns: Bradley Beal, Devin Booker, Eric Gordon, Kevin Durant, Jusuf Nurkic.
