NBA Power Rankings: Suns move up to second as West dominates top five
Only 3 of the top 10 teams in the rankings are from the East. 1. Jazz (38-12, Last Week No. 1). Casual fans will say that defense/Donovan Mitchell/Rudy Gobert are behind Utah’s run to the top of the standings (and these NBA power rankings). They’re not totally wrong, but the reality is it’s the 3-ball that propelled the Jazz the NBA’s best record. Utah is averaging 43 attempts from three a game — the most per game in NBA history, topping the 2017-18 Houston team — and is hitting 39.5% of them. That’s 17 made threes a game on average, blowing out the previous record of 15.3 per game by those same Rockets.
The first of the four games of the day of Sunday in NBA saw the victory of Phoenix in Charlotte on the score of 101-97 after extension.
Fifth victory in six games for Phoenix! The Suns disputed the fourth meeting of their road trip east, and they were 101-97 after Extension in Charlotte, after a meeting started at 1:30 pm local time. But they probably could avoid the additional five minutes if they had better managed the end of the match ... If Charlotte has overall dominated the beginning of the meeting (29-26 at the end of the first quarter), Phoenix came back Without too many problems and the score was half-time parity: 49-49. But Colorado's players, led by a great Devin Booker who will finish with 35 points and 6 rebounds to the meter (10 out of 26 to the shots, including 4/11 at 3pts, and 11/12 at the Francs-Francs), have passed a great Third quarter-time (23-14) and started the fourth by leading sixteen points (67-83), the largest gap in the game. Phoenix seemed to move towards a quiet victory.

Graham Flambe ... For nothing
But the hornets signed a 9-0 to return to 76-83, then a 6-0 to return to 88-82. It remained 4'20 to play, and Phoenix was completely collapsed in the Money-Time, taking up an 8-2, with eight points of Devel Graham, which will end with 30 points (9 out of 21 on the shots, 7 / 16 at 3pts and 5/5 at the charts-francs). A 90-90, Booker missed a 3-point shot at 30 seconds of the buzzer and Phoenix no longer took the slightest shot. Graham, who could have been the hero of the match, tried his long distance chance as well to two and a half seconds of the term, but he also failed, even if the balloon rebounded twice on the ardune . It was therefore necessary to compete with an extension, won 11-7 by the Suns, with eight lanchers-francs and a three-point shot of Mikal Bridges (13pts, 8rbds). Thanks to this success, Phoenix is of course second of the West Conference, with three Victories of Utah. Charlotte is sixth of the east, with the same assessment as Alata.
