The go-to man will be Damian Lillard here. Not because he is such a good player (He really is) However, it’s even more important because of his record against the Suns. He has scored close to 34 points per game in the last 4 contests against the Suns, and it’s pretty clear that the Suns have no idea how to defend against him. Jusuf Nurkic is another threat that will need to be used. He was playing very well until he became injured last season, but he is very important in that Center position. He can score and defend, which also proves to be a deadly combination.
The Suns also have players who have given the Blazers a hard time before. Eric Bledsoe and Devon Booker scored a combined 48 points per game against the Blazers last year. This is proof that the Suns have a deadly backcourt, and are able to score from all over. When it comes to the Center position, Tyson Chandler sits there. He has a lot of experience. He may be 35, but many would argue he is still one of the best Center’s around. Let’s be honest, he would get into most teams! So the Suns have a lot to offer, but if all if this can come together on game day is another story.
