Prediction of every game of the 2021-22 season
The NBA released their full schedule last week and finally finalized the blueprints for their 75th season. With nearly every player who fell victim to the infamous injury mistake last year will return, and with several new contenders formulated in the past few weeks, the 2021-22 season is likely to be considered one of the best of all time.
The suns enter it with a simple task: to defend their Western Conference throne.
Many expect the Los Angeles Lakers to besiege them after taking over Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony this off-season, including Vegas, which lists them with the second highest title streak in the league at +400. Monty Williams and the Valley Boys have other things on their minds, however.
Phoenix still has a roster very similar to last season’s roster, awash with young and groundbreaking talent. They kept Chris Paul and Cameron Payne over the summer while also serving from JaVale McGee and Landry Shamet.
Locked and loaded, the suns no longer look like a team layup when their opponents see them on the game board. But there are still considerable hurdles ahead of Phoenix.
Major matchups for the Suns include a Christmas Day with Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors, as well as their home opener against the Denver Nuggets. But in all of this, every game piles up the same as the final records are weighed to determine the playoff setting.
From start to finish, here is a “weather forecast” for the entire 2021-22 season, predicting every single game.
