Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
San Antonio Spurs vs Phoenix Suns
The Suns will welcome their former rivals San Antonio Spurs to Talking Stick Resort Arena as they are coming off another blowout loss this time against the Thunder while the Spurs are coming off a loss against the Kings. Game tips off at 9:00 PM ET.
San Antonio Spurs's Latest Performance :
The Spurs are coming off a surprising loss against the Kings their first loss after beating the Kings 14 straight times dating back to 2014. Aldridge had 14 points and 18 rebounds. DeRozan scored 23 points with eight assists, and Rudy Gay added 14 points and nine rebounds in his return to the Spurs lineup he played just 21 minutes off the bench and the Spurs will probably ease him back into things for the next few games. They will look to bounce back against the Suns who have been struggling defensively. Pau Gasol still remains out in this game as it’ll be David Bertans and potentially Jakob Poeltl picking up the slack while he’s out. I expect LMA to have a great game against Ayton as he will making a lot of mid-range jump shots forcing Ayton to come outside the paint to guard him. Despite the loss, the new look Spurs are looking good to start the season.
Phoenix Suns 's Latest Performance :
It is going to be a long season for the Suns as they are coming off another blowout loss. The Suns were off to a poor start as they were able to score 13 points in the opener quarter. The Thunder game plan worked to perfection as they are forcing Devin Booker to play defense so he can be less effective on the offensive end. He finished 7-of-18 from the field for 19 points he doesn’t look 100% it seems like his hamstring is still bothering him. He faces a tough task going up against DeMar in the next game. Most of the Suns’ blowout losses this year lacked a run and response in either the second or third quarter to give Phoenix some momentum back and get them in the game however in this game the Suns did go on a run as they outscored the Thunder 35-22 in the 3rd quarter. Bridges had 13 points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal, and a block in 26 minutes when he was a team-high plus-13. Crawford also scored 13, and while he had four turnovers, he made four of his eight shots and was plus-eight in 15 minutes. Ayton was outplayed by Adams in this game as he finished the game with 12 points and 7 rebounds on the night up next for Ayton is Aldridge. The Suns are hoping to end a 4 game losing streak in this game.

Against The Spread Selection: San Antonio Spurs
My reason for the pick :
The Spurs should cruise to another easy victory against the Suns. In their last matchup, the Spurs ended up winning by 30 points. DeMar should get the better of Booker in this game locking him down defensively not allowing to be effective on offense because the Spurs know that the Suns are reliant on Booker’s offense if he is shut down it will be hard for the Suns to win. The Suns are in a tough place because they can’t seem to get anything going at the moment they desperately need a starting caliber point guard to take off the responsibility off Booker.
