Phoenix won at Portland last night 102-98 snapping their 4-game losing streak. The Suns got off to a hot start as they hit 18 of their first 24 shots (75%) to jump out to a 36-23 lead over the Blazers. But Phoenix went cold for the rest of the game as they hit just 39.7% (23-58) over the course of the last three quarters. They were able to hold on and survive because Portland’s offense was limited as they were missing starter Wesley Matthews.
Golden St also played last night but they lost in Utah 115-101. The Warriors come in on a 6-game losing streak, and it just so happens that their last win came against Phoenix. The Warriors beat the Suns by 20 points (113-93), and we can expect a similar result tonight. Golden St simply has too much offensive firepower for Phoenix, and since the Suns come off a good offensive performance last night, we expect them to regress and be unable to match Golden St’s offensive output. We’ll lay the points with the home favorite as they snap their losing streak with a blowout win on Wednesday night. Don’t miss out on Steve Merril’s premium NBA picks for February 20th 2013.
