The Phoenix Suns continue to play impressive basketball and have been one of the more profitable teams in the league dating back to the NBA bubble. The Washington Wizards are dealing with off the court issues with COVID-19, it looks like Bryant is out for the year, and Beal just said the defense can't defend a parked car. Needless to say, the sky is falling in Washington. I want nothing to do with the Wizards right now. I'll lay the chalk with the Suns on the road.
