Phoenix Suns Betting

After a surprisingly torrid start to the season, the Phoenix Suns have been shaky in their last four games with a 2-2 split yet no one is really counting out this team now. In Thursday’s 128-112 win over the Atlanta Hawks, Kelly Oubre Jr. exploded for 30 points and Devin Booker contributed 27 points with 7 assists. Phoenix has continued to share the wealth, finishing with 32 assists on 20 turnovers.

Players to Watch: Devin Booker (25.5 PPG, 3.2 RPG, 6.9 APG), Kelly Oubre, Jr. (16.9 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 1.6 APG), Aron Baynes (15.0 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 2.9 APG)
