What to Know
The Phoenix Suns and the Orlando Magic are even-steven against one another since December of 2015 (6-6), but not for long. Phoenix has the luxury of staying home another game and will welcome the Magic at 9 p.m. ET Feb. 12 at Footprint Center. Phoenix is out to keep their six-game home win streak alive.
Phoenix took their matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks this past Thursday by a conclusive 131-107 score. The game was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Phoenix had established a 97-77 advantage. Their success was spearheaded by the efforts of point guard Chris Paul, who dropped a double-double on 19 dimes and 17 points along with seven boards, and center Deandre Ayton, who had 27 points in addition to seven rebounds. That’s the third consecutive contest in which Paul has had at least 11 assists.
Meanwhile, Orlando lost to the Utah Jazz on the road by a decisive 114-99 margin. The top scorer for the Magic was power forward Wendell Carter Jr. (22 points).
The Suns are the favorite in this one, with an expected 16.5-point margin of victory. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Phoenix’s victory brought them up to 45-10 while Orlando’s defeat pulled them down to 13-44. Two offensive stats to keep an eye on: Phoenix enters the contest with a 48% field goal percentage, good for second best in the league. On the other end of the spectrum, the Magic have only been able to knock down 43.30% percent of their shots, which is the third lowest field goal percentage in the league. We’ll see if Phoenix’s 4.70% advantage translates to a win.
