Alright hoop-heads, get ready for a desert showdown in the Queen City! Our boys, the Phoenix Suns, are packing up their 38W-28L record and heading east to stir up some buzz in the Hornets’ nest, otherwise known as the Spectrum Center. The Suns are hot on the heels of the top dogs in the West, just 4.5 games back, while the Hornets are buzzing around the bottom of the East, a whopping 21 games back. With the Suns favored by nine and an over/under of 218.5, we’re expecting a sizzling showdown come 7PM EST. The Hornets might have stung the Grizzlies 110-98 in their last outing, but our Suns are looking to bounce back after a 112-127 scorching from the Celtics. So, buckle up and get ready to feel the heat because when the Suns set in Charlotte, there’s gonna be a whole lot of buzz!
