The Phoenix Suns could use a feel good win after losing eight of their last 10 games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 100.7 points on 43.4 percent shooting and allowing 107.6 points on 46.7 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 13.4 points and 2.6 assists while Mirza Teletovic is averaging 11.6 points and 3.7 rebounds. Alex Len is grabbing 7.6 rebounds and Archie Goodwin is dishing two assists.

The Clippers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Suns are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games playing on 1 days rest and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 Wednesday games. The Clippers are 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Phoenix.
Even with the Clippers resting guys, it's like the Suns have been resting guys all season. Are we sure Los Angeles' backups can't win this game outright? I wouldn't touch this game, but if forced to pick, I would fade the Suns to cover any type of chalk.
