Phoenix Suns Betting

The Phoenix Suns’ investment in getting Chris Paul is paying off early as this team is the fourth-best in the NBA Western Conference behind the Utah Jazz, LA Clippers, and Los Angeles Lakers. This team just flipped the switch but is experiencing a bumpy road by losing three of their last five. Their last match against the Washington Wizards resulted in a loss as the Suns just got one win in their three-game NBA Eastern Conference swing. Devin Booker did his part providing the team with 33 points but the main reason why the Suns lost is because of their lack of effort in defense.

Players to watch: D. Booker SG 11 GP 11 GS 35.5 MIN 23 PTS 0.3 OR 3 DR 3.3 REB 4.3 AST 1.1 STL 0.4 BLK 4 TO 3 PF 1.1 AST/TO 16.43 PER

Memphis Grizzlies Betting

The Memphis Grizzlies are looking to get their groove back as the team got Ja Morant back two weeks early from when he was expected to return from an injury. The team has been doing well without him but even got better as they edged the Philadelphia 76ers by just two points during their last matchup, 106-104. This team is now on a four-game winning streak and would look to take advantage of the Suns’ recent lapses. Dillon Brooks will be helping Morant with the scoring load but the team will not be playing with center Jonas Valanciunas who is put under quarantine for the next few days.

Players to Watch: J. Morant PG 4 GP 4 GS 28 MIN 24 PTS 0.5 OR 1.3 DR 1.8 REB 6.3 AST 0.8 STL 0.5 BLK 2.5 TO 2.5 PF 2.5 AST/TO 26.08 PER
