2 units on Phoenix -11 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: PUSH
The Suns (49-16, 32-32-1 ATS) are off their first sub-century mark in scoring over an eighteen game stretch and will look to get back into a scoring spree when they make a stop in Atlanta to take on the Hawks (11-54, 27-38 ATS). At 110.2 points/game for the season Phoenix will have little trouble maintaining their average against Hawks putrid defense which is allowing opponents 111.8 points/game the last five on the hardwood. The Suns have pounded the last four Eastern teams they have faced on the road (126.3 PPG) will do much the same here in Atlanta. A lot of lumber to lay (11), however it's tough going against the scoring machine knowing they are 9-2 (8-3 ATS) last five season vs. Atlanta and a near perfect 3-1 against-the-spread handing Hawks double digits. Two stars on Phoenix in a big-time blowout.
