Atlanta Hawks @ Phoenix Suns Tips


The Atlanta Hawks take on the Phoenix Suns in an NBA cross-conference regular season game on Wednesday, March 31. Atlanta are currently 6th in the Eastern Conference, while the Phoenix Suns are 2nd in the Western Conference.  As the ten highest ranked teams from each conference contest the playoffs, both of these teams look set to be seeded.  

Because they play in separate conferences, this will be the first time the Hawks and the Suns have played each other this season, with their last match taking place in January 2020. On that occasion, Atlanta were winners 123-110. This time around, I’m backing Phoenix to defeat the Hawks in convincing fashion in a highly competitive game. 

  • Atlanta 2nd in Southeast Division 
  • Atlanta 23-23 this season 
  • Suns top of Pacific Division 
  • Suns 31-14 this season 

Head to Head


The Phoenix Suns and the Atlanta Hawks have played each other a total of 130 times, with Phoenix currently leading their head-to-head by 73 wins to 57. Over the past three seasons, these two teams have played each other six times, with the Atlanta leading 4-2. The Suns and the Hawks last played each other in January 2020, with Atlanta winning 123-110.

Atlanta Hawks Form


At the start of March the Atlanta Hawks were “also-rans” with far more losses than wins. Atlanta then went on an eight-match winning streak that transformed their season. The Hawks are now 23-23, and up to 6th in the Eastern Conference and in contention for a playoff place. 

Although Atlanta are 7-3 in their last ten matches, they’ve lost three of their last four games, and need to be watchful not to undo all of the good things the team has done in recent weeks. Last time out they were well beaten by the Denver Nuggets 126-102. 

Phoenix Suns Form


The Phoenix Suns are 2nd in the Western Conference with a record 31 wins and 14 defeats. After a shaky start to the season that saw them go 8-8 in January, Phoenix have been a machine, and for this writer, the best team in the NBA. They have gone 23-6 since that poor start, and are now one of the favorites to become NBA Champions. 

Phoenix have however struggled in their last two wins; defeating the Toronto Raptors by a narrow 104-100, and last time out on Sunday (March 28) needing overtime to beat the Charlotte Hornets 101-97. Phoenix were scheduled to face Atlanta back in January, but as both teams have improved massively since then, fans are getting a much better matchup on Wednesday.

Verdict

I am a fan of both these teams, and both have overcome poor starts to this season to become virtual playoff certs. While the Atlanta Hawks are certainly capable of winning this game, it’s tough to bet against the Phoenix Suns right now because they never seem to have an off game, even when they lose, which is rare.
 
I’m backing Phoenix to win an entertaining, high scoring game by at least ten points, in a match that will total more than 230 points.
