The Phoenix Suns and Atlanta Hawks meet Wednesday in NBA action at the State Farm Arena.
The Phoenix Suns look for a win after winning 11 of their last 14 games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 114.5 points on 48.9 percent shooting and allowing 108.4 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 25.6 points and 4.4 assists while Chris Paul is averaging 16.2 points and 4.5 rebounds. Deandre Ayton is the third double-digit scorer and Mikal Bridges is dishing 2.2 assists. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 37.3 percent from beyond the arc and 82.5 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.2 rebounds per game.
The Atlanta Hawks look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Atlanta Hawks are averaging 112.7 points on 46.3 percent shooting and allowing 111.4 points on 46.4 percent shooting. Trae Young is averaging 25.5 points and 3.9 rebounds while John Collins is averaging 17.6 points and 7.6 rebounds. De’Andre Hunter is the third double-digit scorer and Clint Capela is grabbing 14.4 rebounds. The Atlanta Hawks are shooting 37.2 percent from beyond the arc and 81.1 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Hawks are allowing 34.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.4 rebounds per game.
The Suns are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 0 days rest and 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 road games. The Hawks are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 home games and 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Suns last 5 overall. The over is 20-8 in Hawks last 28 Wednesday games. The Suns are 7-3-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
The Phoenix Suns are on the end of a back to back, but they continue to win and cover numbers at such an impressive rate that I’m not sure it matters much. The Atlanta Hawks are losing their last five games by an average of 12 points while shooting 43.8 percent from the field. The Suns win in the favorite role by an average of 7.5 points. While the Hawks are 20-11 against the spread at home, I need more points to consider them here. I’ll lay the bucket with the Suns on the road.
