The Washington Wizards and Phoenix Suns meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Talking Stick Resort Arena.

The Washington Wizards could use a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Washington Wizards are averaging 114.3 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 116.9 points on 47.7 percent shooting. Bradley Beal is averaging 25.9 points and 5.2 rebounds while Bobby Portis is averaging 14.8 points and 8.4 rebounds. Jabari Parker is the third double-digit scorer and Trevor Ariza is grabbing 5.4 rebounds. The Washington Wizards are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 77.1 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Wizards are allowing 37.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42 rebounds per game. The Washington Wizards have lost their last five road games.

The Phoenix Suns look for a win after losing seven of their last nine games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 106.7 points on 45.6 percent shooting and allowing 116.1 points on 48.1 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 26.2 points and 6.7 assists while TJ Warren is averaging 18 points and four rebounds. Kelly Oubre Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Deandre Ayton is grabbing 10.2 rebounds. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 32.6 percent from beyond the arc and 78 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 36.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.3 rebounds per game. The Phoenix Suns have split their last six home games.

The Wizards are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 0 days rest, 13-34 ATS in their last 47 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference. The Suns are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-9 ATS in their last 13 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Southeast. The Wizards are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Phoenix and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 9-3 in Suns last 12 overall. The over is 16-7 in Wizards last 23 overall.

The Washington Wizards have won six of the last seven meetings against the Suns, but considering they play only twice a year, a lot of those games were when the Wizards were healthy and making playoff runs. The Wizards are falling apart, have lost five straight and came into last nights game against the Lakers allowing 51.3 percent shooting and losing by an average of six points in their last five games. The Phoenix Suns obviously have issues of their own, but they're rested and at home. The Suns are also a decent offensive team despite their struggles, and they should get the track meet they want against these Wizards. I'll take a shot with the free bucket. 

Pick:
Phoenix Suns +1.5
