Eric Bledsoe is averaging 17.3 points and six assists while Markieff Morris is averaging 15.4 points and 5.9 rebounds. Gerald Green is shooting 40.5 percent from the field and Marcus Morris is grabbing 4.5 rebounds. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 45.4 percent from the field in their last five games and hope to keep winning to inch closer to a playoff spot. The Suns have won five of their last eight home games and are three games out of the eighth seed in the West. Marcus Thornton and Brandon Knight are questionable with injuries.
The Kings are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest and 16-35-2 ATS in their last 53 games overall. The Suns are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. NBA Pacific and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Kings are 5-11 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Phoenix.
The Suns are a desprate team that needs to keep winning if they hope to make the playoffs. The Kings just played last night and now have to travel. I like the home team to win by double digits here.
