Pelicans vs. Suns: How to watch, schedule, live stream info, game time, TV channel

Through 3 Quarters

Only one more quarter stands between the Phoenix Suns and the win they were favored to collect going into this night. Three quarters in and their offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating the New Orleans Pelicans 95-84.

The Suns have enjoyed the tag-team combination of shooting guard Devin Booker and small forward Mikal Bridges. The former has 22 points and four assists along with six boards, while the latter has 18 points. Booker does need to be careful, however, as he is in foul trouble with four. Power forward Jalen Smith is also in foul trouble with four.

The top scorer for New Orleans has been center Jonas Valanciunas (21 points).

New Orleans has lost 88% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this season, so this one seems just about wrapped up

What to Know

The New Orleans Pelicans are getting right back to it as they host the Phoenix Suns at 8 p.m. ET Jan. 4 at Smoothie King Center. Phoenix will be strutting in after a win while the Pelicans will be stumbling in from a defeat.

On Monday, New Orleans lost to the Utah Jazz at home by a decisive 115-104 margin. Small forward Brandon Ingram wasn’t much of a difference maker for New Orleans; Ingram played for 31 minutes with 3-for-18 shooting.

Meanwhile, you can’t lose the game if you win every quarter, and that was precisely Phoenix’s strategy against the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday. Phoenix couldn’t have asked for a better start to 2022 than the 133-99 stomp they dished out against Charlotte on the road. With the Suns ahead 73-47 at the half, the contest was all but over already. The top scorer for Phoenix was shooting guard Devin Booker (24 points).

New Orleans is expected to lose this next one by 6.5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.

New Orleans is now 13-24 while Phoenix sits at 28-8. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Pelicans have allowed their opponents to shoot 46.90% from the floor on average, which is the third highest shooting percentage allowed in the league. The Suns’ offense has more to brag about, as they they enter the matchup with a 47.50% field goal percentage, good for second best in the league. So the cards are definitely stacked in their favor.
