Recent Performances

Phoenix Suns

The Suns are coming off a solid win against the Milwaukee Bucks, showcasing their ability to compete against top-tier opponents. Their improved defense has been a key factor in their recent success.

Utah Jazz

The Jazz have also been performing well, securing wins against tough opponents like the Oklahoma City Thunder. However, their road struggles could pose a challenge against the Suns.

 

Prediction

With their recent defensive improvements and home-court advantage, the Phoenix Suns are poised to secure a victory and cover the -6.5 points spread against the Utah Jazz.

The Suns have been playing suffocating defense lately, which could stifle the Jazz's offense and give them the edge in this matchup. Kevin Durant's scoring prowess and Jusuf Nurkic's dominance in the paint provide the Suns with a well-rounded attack.

Although the Jazz have been competitive in recent games, their struggles on the road make them vulnerable against a strong Suns team at home. Expect the Suns to control the tempo of the game and capitalize on their defensive prowess to secure a comfortable victory.

Pick: Phoenix Suns -6.5 (-110)
