San Antonio Spurs's Latest Performance :
The Spurs will always be the Spurs under the coaching of Coach Pop they were able to grind out a win against the Mavericks in their last game. The players are so invested in the system as they will execute whatever he tells them to do. Playing against the Suns this time around shouldn’t be hard for the Spurs because this Suns team are young and are still finding their identity. DeRozan was impressive again for the Spurs against Dallas as he finished the game with 34 points and nine assists, including 18 points in the fourth quarter and overtime. It was a balanced effort from the Spurs LaMarcus Aldridge scored 20 points, while Rudy Gay chipped in 15 points and 11 rebounds, as one of six Spurs’ players in double-figures on the night. If Demar can keep up his performance he could make a case to be a potential MVP candidate he has not disappoint since coming over from Toronto.
Phoenix Suns 's Latest Performance :
The Suns can’t seem to get a win after their season opener as they have dropped five games in a row. The only good thing to come out of the Suns camp is that Ayton is the real deal and he is good as advertised although his supporting group needs a lot of improvements. Ayton in his last game had 16 points with 11 rebounds. He did his best but his Suns still end up losing against the Thunder. He’s played just five NBA games, averaging 17.8 points, 10.2 boards. Elie Okobo will get his second start as Canaan is still dealing with an ankle injury. In his first start with the Suns, he put up an impressive stat line 18 points, five rebounds, seven assists. He was part of the huge 4th quarter run against the Thunder. He will have another opportunity to showcase his talents against the Spurs. The Suns will still be without their star player Devin Booker as he is still dealing with a hamstring injury.

Against The Spread Selection: San Antonio Spurs
My reason for the pick :
The Suns remain winless in their last six games as they will drop this game as well to the Spurs. Demar has been great for the Spurs to start the season and I don’t see him slowing down anytime soon. For the Suns, they will continue to struggle after a high expectation to start the season. They will still be without Devin Booker so it will be tough for them to score against the Spurs defense. Go with the Spurs with this game they should be able to pick up an easy win on the road.
