Phoenix Suns Betting
The Phoenix Suns struggled in both games with their poor offensive skills. The Suns need to score fast and they need some three-pointers to help them stay ahead of the Nuggets. Devin Booker tossed in 15 points, six assists, and five boards in their last defeat. Kevin Durant was the other notable player on the squad. Deandre Ayton tossed in another 14 points, eight boards, and four assists. The Suns must improve on their offense if they want to win.
