The Betting Line has Phoenix as 13 point road UNDERDOGS ATS. The TOTAL is 214′ points for Thursday’s contest.
Trade rumors surrounding 33-year-old forward Trevor Ariza are swirling around the Phoenix Suns organization. The former Rockets star has plenty of value with an ability to clamp down on defense and shoot from the perimeter.
Phoenix wants a quality point guard to distribute, freeing up Devin Booker (out tonight) to freelance on the wing.
The Suns (103.0) points per game are 28th in the league while the (45.6%) shooting from the field ranks 17th in basketball. Booker (23.5) ppg along with TJ Warren whos out with a hamstring injury, (17.7) are the primary offensive weapon. The organization wants 2017 number-four overall draft pick, Josh Jackson, to play a more prominent role, and he’ll get his chance tonight with the two top scorers out.
Rookie Deandre Ayton is the real deal and is showing why he was the top overall pick this season grabbing a team-best (10.2) rebounds per game. The Suns 25th ranked defense allows opponents (114.0) points per game; the last two opponents have scored at least 120 points. Phoenix allows the opposition a high shooting percentage which must be corrected.
Forward Ryan Anderson has been a disappointment since coming over from New Orleans but provides leadership to the youthful roster. Phoenix knows that Portland is desperate for a victory.
However, it’s going to be tight with Booker and Warren out tonight.
Bovada.Lv list the Phoenix Suns win total at 29′ games for 2018-19.
The Portland Trailblazers front office didn’t make any drastic moves after they got swept in the opening round of last season’s playoffs. Portland began the season playing efficiently at both ends of the court, but now fans around the city are questioning head coach Terry Stotts.
As expected All-Star point guard Damian Lillard is playing at an elite level. However, role players such as Zach Collins, Moe Harkless, and Al-Farouq Aminu are struggling which reminds the faithful of the Pelicans playoff series.
Lillard average a team-high (27.3) ppg on a unit that produces (112.5) points per contest. If the season ended today, Portland would be the number-seven seed in the Western Conference. Portland allows the opposition (111.7) points per game, 20th in the NBA on a dismal (46.0%) shooting from the field which is too high.
Portland excels at forcing turnover; the (12.2) is the 2nd league-wide. CJ McCollum is questionable for tonight’s game after suffering an ankle injury.
A key to a Portland win tonight to come out and play with enthusiasm; someone other than Lillard has to produce on offense.
