The Line: Phoenix Suns +14 -- Over/Under See the Latest Odds
The San Antonio Spurs pay a visit to the struggling Phoenix Suns at the Talking Stick Resort Arena tonight.
The Spurs will be looking to build on their current 11-game win streak after making light work of the Mavericks in a 112-83 rout on Sunday. LaMarcus Aldridge led the team in scoring with 23 points, Boris Diaw added 16 points off the bench while Kawhi Leonard had 15 as the Spurs easily took care of the inconsistent Mavs team to stay undefeated at home this season. The win came at a cost though, as Tony Parker injured his hip and has been ruled out of tonight's fixture, which is a shame because he was really starting to heat up after scoring 31 points and 24 points in consecutive games.

Meanwhile, the Suns have lost 14 of their last 15 games and are coming off a painful 97-94 loss to the Pacers despite a career-high 32 points from Devin Booker. Brandon Knight added 21 points while PJ Tucker had 12 points but no other Suns player finished in double figures as the Suns shot a miserable 35 percent from the field while committing 22 turnovers. With the narrow loss, Phoenix drops to 13-30 on the season and 9-12 at home where they've six of their last seven.
In ATS trends, the Spurs are 5-1 ATS in their last six road games and 45-20 ATS in their last 65 games overall, while the Suns are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games against a team above .600.
Head to head, the Spurs are 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall and 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings in Phoenix.
Once again this seems like too many points to be giving the Suns, but the Spurs have been on an absolute tear lately and should have no problem beating the struggling Suns comfortably tonight.
