The Denver Nuggets and Phoenix Suns meet Friday in NBA action at the PHX Arena.

The Denver Nuggets look for a win here to get a game above a .500 record. The Denver Nuggets are averaging 115.6 points on 47.9 percent shooting and allowing 111.7 points on 47.9 percent shooting. Nikola Jokic is averaging 25.1 points and 11.4 rebounds while Michel Porter Jr. is averaging 19.5 points and 1.8 assists. Jamal Murray is the third double-digit scorer and Will Barton is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. The Denver Nuggets are shooting 37.3 percent from beyond the arc and 74.8 percent from the free throw line. The Denver Nuggets are allowing 38.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.2 rebounds per game.

The Phoenix Suns look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 109.8 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 106.5 points on 46.1 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 22.2 points and 4.1 assists while Mikal Bridges is averaging 14.7 points and 5.5 rebounds. Deandre Ayton is the third double-digit scorer and Chris Paul is dishing 8.2 assists. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 81.5 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.7 rebounds per game.


The Nuggets are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 Friday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog. The Suns are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 home games and 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The over is 37-18-3 in Nuggets last 58 overall. The under is 10-4 in Suns last 14 overall. The over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Phoenix and 11-5 in the last 16 meetings.

The Denver Nuggets continue to be hit or miss this season and a lot of it has to do with a struggling defense. The Phoenix Suns have had their issues these last couple of weeks as well, but they're showing signs of getting back on track and they're still one of the more profitable teams in the league dating back to the NBA bubble. The Suns also beat the Nuggets a couple weeks ago. Give me the Suns at home in this toss up contest.
