Phoenix Suns's Latest Performance :
The Suns are coming off their first road win of the season against the Bucks and are looking to keep the ball rolling against the Pistons. Coach Igor made another lineup change in this game moving Devin Booker to point guard while leaving Canaan on the bench. Devin Booker scored 29 points (13-of-16 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with 7 dimes. He is averaging 9 assists over the last five games. He will get the start as the point guard in the next game. Bridges is probably a good bet to stick in the starting lineup for the foreseeable future Igor likes the length that the Suns have in their new line up with their long hands they can get steals and run the fast break. Warren chipped in with 19 points as he scored the tieing basket for the Suns before Crawford hit the game-winner over Brogdon. Over his last five games, he’s averaging 22.2 points and has a much improved three-point shot. All eyes will be on Ayton in this game as he will be matched up with Drummond it will be the first meeting of the season between the two big men. He is averaging 18.0 points and 9.4 rebounds on 62% shooting over his last five games.
Detroit Pistons's Latest Performance :
The Pistons are coming off an overtime win against the Rockets. Leading the way for the Pistons was Jackson he caught fire against the Rockets scoring 19 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and overtime. He was also 12-of-14 from the line to put him just two shy of his career-high 14 makes. Blake Griffin scored 28 points with nine rebounds, four assists, and two 3-pointers. He was impressive taking advantage of the Rockets bigs in this game his ability to stretch the floor and shoot threes this season makes him very hard to cover. The Suns will be going with a small-ball line up so I look for him to take advantage. Andre Drummond scored 23 points with 20 rebounds, one assist, five blocks, and three steals in 44 minutes. It was his sixth 20-20 game of the season as he will be looking forward to the matchup against rookie Ayton as both players have similar playing style. Pistons rookie Bruce Brown did a great job on Harden as he should be seeing some playing time in this game at home against the Suns as he will try to contain Booker.

Against The Spread Selection: Phoenix Suns
My reason for the pick :
The Suns will win their second straight as the new line-up seems to be working they are getting deflections on the defensive end and that will lead to fast break points Booker will have a great game as he will look to carry this Suns team offensively. Ayton will be involved in a lot of pick and roll action and catching lobs tiring Drummond. For the Pistons, despite coming off a win against the Rockets won’t be able to keep up with the speed that the Suns are playing. Suns to win on the road over the Pistons.
