Right now, it is the New Orleans Pelicans that are hot. The no. 8 seed shocked the Devin Booker-less Phoenix Suns in back-to-back games to even the series at 2-2 in the first round of the playoffs out West.
Game 5 will be played in the Valley of Suns, but can the top-seeded squad be successful in taking the crucial match?
Brandon Ingram has been unstoppable; lately, that also ignited his teammates to do well. Meanwhile, Chris Paul and the Suns were collapsing in the end game, but it’s the playoffs, so anything can happen.
Jose Alvarado, the undrafted guard, was able to get into CP3’s head in Game 4 after forcing a turnover in a full-court press and his signature hiding technique to steal the ball. With the momentum clearly on their side, can this eight-seed, who fought through a play-in tournament to enter the playoffs, upset the Phoenix Suns?
