Phoenix Suns Betting

After losing to the Atlanta Hawks, the Phoenix Suns immediately bounced back with a win over the Washington Wizards in a low-scoring affair, 95-80. This team remains to be the top team in the NBA with their record at 42-10 and they own a 2.5-game lead over the Golden State Warriors. During their most previous victory over the Washington Wizards, Chris Paul controlled the floor with a near double-double of 14 points and nine assists while Devin Booker struggled to finish with only 11 points. The best news for Suns fans is that DeAndre Ayton is back carrying a team with a strong performance in the paint with 20 points and 16 boards.
