The Phoenix Suns and the Cleveland Cavaliers meet for the first time this season when they collide at Quicken Loans Arena.

Goran Dragic led the way with 19 points and 11 assists while Channing Frye made four triples on his way to 16 points, but the Suns committed 21 turnovers and allowed 19 offensive rebounds which really hurt them in the end. With the loss, Phoenix falls to 24-18 overall and 15-7 at home.

Meanwhile, the Cavaliers have continued their inconsistent play with three loss in their last five outings, but were able to avoid a third straight loss on Friday by beating the hapless Bucks by 93-78. Anderson Varejao led the scoring with 16 points and Kyrie Irving had 10 points and 10 assists as the Cavs exploded with a 17-0 run in the second quarter before cruising their way to an easy win. With the victory, Cleveland improved to 16-27 overall and 11-10 at home.
In ATS trends, the Suns are 7-2 ATS in their last nine games following a loss and 14-6 ATS in their last 20 road games, while the Cavs are 6-2 ATS in their last eight home games and 1-5 ATS in their last six games following a win.
Head to head, the Suns are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall and 5-2 ATS in the last seven in Cleveland.
The Cavs have been one of the worst road teams all season but their 11-10 home record isn't too bad because they really feed off the energy of the crowd. However, the Suns were on a bit of a roll before their Friday loss and should be good enough to get the win on the road tonight.
