Phoenix Suns Betting
The Suns hit a conundrum as they have lost six of their last seven games, making it 3-7 in their last 10 while putting their overall record reeling under .400 with a 21-32 record. They logged in high mileage on Friday to pull off a 127-91 drubbing of the Houston Rockets but failed to sustain their charge as they conceded to the Denver Nuggets the night after, 117-108. Perhaps steam played a factor in the loss on the second night of a back-to-back as each of Phoenix’s starters was fielded in for at least 32 minutes against Houston. Deandre Ayton and Devin Booker did not mind getting winded at all as the duo came out to perform against Denver, scoring 28 and 21, respectively, with the former notching a double-double as he grabbed 19 boards.

Los Angeles Lakers Betting
The Lakers want to enter the All-Star break on a winning note. But if their last game was any indication, then they should sense that more work has to be done to sweep their next two games that will end in Denver before hitting the break. The Lakers were pushed to their limits against Golden State as they still needed a clutch triple from LeBron James before shaking off the Warriors who are virtually competing for nothing this season. James flirted with a triple-double of 22 points, 11 assists and eight boards while Anthony Davis was efficient with 27 points on 9-of-14 shooting, along with 10 rebounds for another double-double.
Players to watch: A. Davis PF 43 GP 43 GS 34.6 MIN 26.5 PTS 2.1 OR 7.1 DR 9.2 REB 3.3 AST 1.5 STL 2.4 BLK 2.4 TO 2.5 PF 1.3 AST/TO 28.36 PER
