Phoenix Suns

The Phoenix Suns have shown promise this season with a 2-1 record. However, they face some challenges due to injuries.

The Phoenix Suns will be without the services of Bradley Beal, who is listed as "OUT" for the game. Devin Booker is listed as "Game-Time Decision," which could impact the Suns' performance.

 

Prediction

The San Antonio Spurs have a chance to keep this game close and potentially cover the +6.5 point spread. Despite their early-season record, they have shown moments of brilliance, especially with Devin Vassell emerging as a reliable scorer.

Phoenix, while impressive, will be without key players in Bradley Beal and the uncertainty surrounding Devin Booker's availability. This creates an opportunity for the Spurs to capitalize and make this a competitive matchup.

San Antonio's defensive efforts, led by Vassell and their playmaking under Tre Jones, can help them stay within striking distance of the Suns. While Phoenix has a star in Kevin Durant, the absence of key pieces could hinder their dominance in this game.

Expect the San Antonio Spurs to bring a competitive spirit and potentially pull off an upset or at least keep this game close enough to cover the +6.5 point spread.

 

Pick: San Antonio Spurs +6.5 -110
