Chicago Bulls v Phoenix Suns
Phoenix Suns vs. San Antonio Spurs Prediction

The Phoenix Suns take on the San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center on Sunday (December 4) in NBA Regular Season action. The 15-7 Suns are still the best team in the Western Conference, sitting nervously at the summit. The 6-17 Spurs, however, are on the completely opposite side of the spectrum, sitting rock-bottom.

The San Antonio Spurs have been terrible this season. They are currently 6-17 sitting Rock bottom in the Western Conference standings. they have been on a terrible run leading up to this game having lost all of their last 10. Both their offense and the defense have underperformed massively. They currently ship nearly 121 points per game which is the worst tally in the entire NBA. Their offense hasn't performed well either, rated second-bottom in the entire NBA with a rating of 108.

The Suns on the other hand, have been spectacular. They are undoubtedly the best team in the West, having won the most games at this stage of the season. But there are a few teams hot on their trail trying to dethrone them for the top spot. They are currently the second-best offense and 6th best defense in the entire NBA. Their perimeter defense has stolen the show this season, as they are allowing the opponents only 30 3-point attempts per game which is the lowest in the entire NBA.

It has been a season to remember for star guard Devin Booker who is lighting up the league every time steps on the court. He is currently leading the side in points as well as assists, averaging nearly 30-5-6 on a sensational 61% true shooting. He has been in terrifying form recently, averaging 45 points per game in the last three outings.

Suns vs. Spurs Betting Prediction

The Suns should cruise to win in this game. They have been on fire offensively and should feel very comfortable going up against the weakest defense in basketball.

All that could go wrong for the Spurs has gone wrong already, losing 10 on the bounce, as they face the best team in the Conference. With such a sub-par defense on offer, Devin Booker could run wild once again.

Suns: -10 (-108)
