The NBA midseason is around and we have witnessed a fun season. The trade deadline is knocking on our doors and the stakes are ever-so-high as the Play-in/Playoffs scenarios are going to be in full flow in some months. Keeping that in mind, let us jump into this game between the San Antonio Spurs and the Phoenix Suns.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs enter the fray after losing 138:100 against the Clippers despite a 19 points performance by Keldon Johnson. They have lost four in a row and nine of their last ten games. They have stacked up 35 losses and have just 14 wins which means that they have one of the worst records in the league. Things have gone even more south since Devin Vassell has been out so Keldon Johnson has had to lead the scoring effort in the last five games. Overall, San Antonio is heading to the lottery and there is no doubt that this was the expected performance from the inexperienced team.
The Suns enter the fray after losing 95:99 against the Mavericks despite a 22 points outing by Cameron Johnson. The Suns should have won this game considering that Luka Doncic left the floor after three minutes but Phoenix allowed Spencer Dinwiddie to explode for 30+ points. The loss broke a four-game winning streak but in the extended window, they have lost 10 of their last fifteen games bringing their record to 25 wins and 25 losses. Not having Devin Booker has made them one of the worst offensive teams while Deandre Ayton has been a bit disappointing. Perhaps his heart is with not the team anymore and he may be traded soon.
Expert Betting Tips
The Spurs have been one of the worst teams this season and their uninspiring play on both ends means that they are losing by 20+ points regularly. The Suns are not the team that nabbed 60+ wins last season anymore and they are now staring at a Play-in spot unless Devin Booker returns and propels them to top six. Still, with Paul, Johnson, Bridges, and Ayton, their chances look amazing. I predict a 119:104 win in favor of Phoenix.
