What to Know
The Phoenix Suns will play host again and welcome the Oklahoma City Thunder to Footprint Center, where tip-off is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday. Phoenix is the favorite here — although they were the favorites in their last contest, too, so the odds might count for a little less.
It looks like the Suns must have gotten on Santa’s naughty list since the squad didn’t end up with the win they were expected to receive on Monday. They were just a bucket short of a victory and fell 114-113 to the Memphis Grizzlies. A silver lining for Phoenix was the play of shooting guard Devin Booker, who had 30 points.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma City was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Tuesday as they fell 117-111 to the Sacramento Kings. The losing side was boosted by shooting guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who had 33 points and five assists in addition to five rebounds.
This next matchup looks promising for Phoenix, who are favored by a full 16 points. Now might not be the best time to take Phoenix against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past three consecutive games.
The losses put the Suns at 26-7 and OKC at 12-21. Phoenix is 4-2 after losses this year, the Thunder 6-14.
