The Phoenix Suns need a big home win to get back to a .500 record. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 102.1 points on 42.8 percent shooting and allowing 102.3 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Eric Bledsoe is averaging 21.9 points and 6.1 assists while Brandon Knight is averaging 17.9 points and 4.3 rebounds.

The Clippers are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Suns are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games. The Clippers are 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Phoenix.
The Clippers are looking a little shaky lately and that bench we thought was improved, well, isn't improved. The Suns can get physical with the Clippers in the paint and those rested legs should do wonders against a Clippers team that played last night. I like the Suns and the free points.
