The Phoenix Suns are more than capable of blowing the doors off here. However, motivation could be a factor for the Suns and this is their last game until Monday against the Heat, which means guys are likely looking forward to a weekend in Miami. The Orlando Magic have also been able to scratch out a win here and there lately and have covered 7 of their last 8 home games. I’ll take a stab with the free buckets.
