The New Orleans Pelicans will return home tonight to face the Phoenix Suns with their first-round playoff series tied at one game apiece.

The Pelicans got a brilliant performance from Brandon Ingram in game two, as the Pels stunned the Suns on the road to tie the series.

Devin Booker is likely out for games three and four, but the Suns aren’t going to lay down and the Pelicans will have to adjust to a team that CJ McCollum called “a wounded and dangerous animal.”

You hate to see injuries in the playoffs, but the Suns have guys who will be ready to step up.

The Pelicans will need to put the clamps on Mikal Bridges, who is more than capable of filling Booker’s shoes on the offensive end if New Orleans lets him get going.

They will also have to control the bigs by playing more drop coverage and not giving Chris Paul easy lob attempts.

The Pelicans have a tall task with or without Booker in the game and will have to continue to get contributions from their role players to win at home against the Suns.

Even without Booker, the Phoenix Suns are still favored, so can New Orleans pull off another upset against the NBA’s best team?
