The Denver Nuggets and the Phoenix Suns do battle at the Talking Stick Resort Arena on Sunday afternoon.
The Nuggets have lost eight of their last 11 games and they'll want to avoid a third straight loss after falling to the Thunder in a 132-129 overtime defeat on Friday. Wilson Chandler stepped into the starting lineup for the injured Danilo Gallinari and led the team with 32 points, Jameer Nelson chipped in with 21 points and 13 assists, Jamal Murray added 20 points and Emannuel Mudiay had 17 points but it still wasn't enough to get past the Thunder who were led by Russell Westbrook's triple-double of 36 points, 12 rebounds and 18 assists. With the loss, Denver falls to 6-10 overall and 3-5 at home where they had won two straight before Friday's loss.

Meanwhile, the Suns have lost three of their last four and they'll still be scratching their heads after falling victim to a furious comeback in Friday's 98-85 home loss to the Timberwolves. Eric Bledsoe led the team with 23 points, six rebounds and 10 assists, Brandon Knight added 15 points while Devin Booker had just 11 points as the Suns played well to lead by 13 points in the third quarter, only to see the Wolves steal the win with a dominant 31-10 fourth quarter. With the loss, Phoenix drops to 5-12 overall and 2-4 at home where they've lost their last two.
Looking at betting trends, the Nuggets are 7-2 ATS in their last nine road games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall, while the Suns are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a double-digit loss at home and 17-35 ATS in their last 52 games against a team with a losing record.
Head to head, the Nuggets are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Phoenix and the Home team is 25-11-1 ATS in the last 37 meetings overall.
TJ Warren remains out for the Suns while the Nuggets are without Will Barton and Gary Harris so they'll want Danilo Gallinari back in the lineup but he is currently listed as questionable for tonight's game. With that being said, you really couldn't feel too confident about betting on either team in this matchup so in a coin flip, I'll side with the Suns at home.
