Point Spread Pick:
We were impressed by the Suns heart in their spirited comeback attempt in the 4th last night. That being said, the scheduling doesn’t do them any favors here with the last time they played back to back games they were blown out by 23 points to of all teams Utah.
Take the LA Clippers -10.
