In a lot of cases, absolutely it is. 80% of bank shots are taken in and around the 24 inch shooter's square which the 54 inch backboard will capture easily. Narrow playing areas are especially well suited for 54" backboards because you're unable to get out very far on the wings which is where you need more glass to make your bank shots. You might also consider your player's level of play. If the 54 inch basketball hoop is more for fun and less for at-home training then the benefits of a larger board might not be there for you.
The obvious difference is the 3 inches on either side of the backboard. The extra width will allow for more bank shots, especially from the wings. It's also closer to regulation size helping players emulate the gym playing experience at home. Although the backboard size is usually the biggest difference between basketball hoop models there can be others like pole size (stability) overhang (more room to play underneath) and warranty. Be sure to check more than just the backboard size when choosing the best basketball hoop for your players and playing area.
