Away: Phoenix Suns (13-3, 5-1 Away)
Projected Starting Five:
- PG: Chris Paul
- SG: Devin Booker
- SF: Mikal Bridges
- PF: Jae Crowder
- C: DeAndre Ayton
The Phoenix Suns are simply looking unbeatable at the moment. Their 12-game winning streak has come during a relatively easier part of their schedule, but it’s not easy winning that many games in a row – no matter who you’re up against.
The big thing for the Suns leading into this matchup is how well-rested their starters will be on the second game of a back-to-back set. Mikal Bridges was the lone starter to play over 30 minutes in the game. Chris Paul and Jae Crowder played 24 apiece, Devin Booker played 28, and DeAndre Ayton played 26.
That means they should have their legs under them still tomorrow, and if they can get off to another furious start, the Suns could run away with another huge victory. They’re just firing on all cylinders right now, and even when games have gotten close, they’ve found a way to close things out in the fourth quarter.
The Suns have been road favorites five times this season, and they’ve won all of those games. They’re 4-1 ATS in that span, and hit the under all five times.
Home: San Antonio Spurs (4-11, 2-4 Home)
Projected Starting Five:
- PG: Dejounte Murray
- SG: Derrick White
- SF: Dough McDermott
- PF: Keldon Johnson
- C: Jakob Poetl
By contrast, the San Antonio Spurs are playing some of the worst basketball of the Greg Popovich era. They have one win against a good team in the Milwaukee Bucks, and their other three wins were against the Orlando Magic (twice) and Sacramento Kings. The Magic are the Eastern Conference’s worst team at the moment, and the Sacramento Kings rank 12th in the Western Conference.
Coach Pop will get his boys to fight on admirably, but he just doesn’t have the right personnel this year. They may have stood a better chance if the Nuggets took the Suns into deep waters, but that never happened.
Facing a relatively fresh trio of Chris Paul, Devin Booker and DeAndre Ayton is not going to be a fun prospect for them.
The Spurs have lost all three of their games as home underdogs this season, and are 1-2 ATS. They hit the over twice and pushed once.
Spread: I think the Phoenix Suns cover -5.5.
Over/Under: The Suns’ starters got a good amount of rest because of how far ahead they got in the first half. I think the teams combine to hit the over 219.5.
