The Suns suffered a brutal loss in Game 2. One defeat early in the series generally wouldn’t be a time to panic, but they could be without their star Devin Booker for a while. He was having a fantastic game with 31 points in 25 minutes before suffering a Grade 1 hamstring strain that could sideline him for the next 2-3 weeks. Phoenix is still in good shape to win this series according to the odds on DraftKings Sportsbook, but the Suns will need a healthy Booker to get where they want to go this postseason.

The Pelicans used an impressive performance from Brandon Ingram to pick up a victory before this series heads to New Orleans. Ingram came an assist away from a triple-double as he finished with 37 points, 11 boards and 9 assists. CJ McCollum also flirted with a triple-double with 23 points, 9 assists and 8 rebounds. The Pelicans were hot from three-point range, knocking down 56.7 percent of their deep shots in the victory.
