Point Spread Pick:
The Suns are coming off of a poor outing versus the Bulls last night but they may have been caught looking ahead to tonight’s matchup. Phoenix has had their way with Houston winning 5 of the last 7 while covering an even better 6 of 7. The scheduling is a big advantage for the Rockets but there is enough value in the line to back the visitor here.
Take the Phoenix Suns +7.5
