The Phoenix Suns will be traveling to New York to face the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets who traded their next-best player Kyrie Irving will miss out on the new incoming players. With the controversial figure out for the Nets, they still have a huge mountain. Both teams have been hit with major injuries, which is not good at all as they have slid down the table. The Suns who were without Devin Booker, since Christmas is nearing his first game this season.

The Suns on the other hand have all to play for, as it is life and death in the Western Conference. Nonetheless, both teams will not be backing down from a fight tonight.
