Tuesday, December 27, 2023 @ 7:00pm CST

TV: Space City Home Network

Radio: SportsTalk790

Online: Rockets App

Injuries

Rockets: Dillon Brooks (out), Tari Eason (GTD)

Suns: Shockingly, Bradley Beal is out.


Look at the career comparisons for Eric Gordon and Bradley Beal. They’re basically the same player, but Beal has more “value” almost entirely due to usage, specifically about twice as many 2pt shots per game. Follow this link and look at the per 100 possession stats and tell me why if Bradley Beal was a max player Eric Gordon wasn’t?

Fortunately for the Suns, they got a 1-1 replacement for the perpetually injured Beal in Eric Gordon, no stranger to the trainer’s table himself, but more reliable than Beal in recent seasons.
