The Brooklyn Nets and Phoenix Suns meet Tuesday in NBA action at the PHX Arena.

The Brooklyn Nets look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 120.9 points on 49.7 percent shooting and allowing 117.5 points on 46.3 percent shooting. Kevin Durant is averaging 29 points and 5.3 assists while Kyrie Irving is averaging 27.6 points and 4.6 rebounds. James Harden is the third double-digit scorer and Joe Harris is dishing 1.9 assists. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 39.6 percent from beyond the arc and 82.6 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.4 rebounds per game.

The Phoenix Suns look to build on their six-game winning streak. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 110.8 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 107.2 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 24.5 points and 4.3 assists while Chris Paul is averaging 16.7 points and 4.7 rebounds. Mikal Bridges is the third double-digit scorer and Deandre Ayton is dishing 1.8 assists. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 36 percent from beyond the arc and 83.1 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 34.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.7 rebounds per game.


The Nets are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games and 8-1 ATS in their last 9 Tuesday games. The Suns are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 home games and 25-9 ATS in their last 34 games overall. The over is 20-6 in Nets last 26 overall. The over is 5-2 in Suns last 7 Tuesday games. The Nets are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Phoenix and 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

The Brooklyn Nets are on the end of a back to back and their defense is still questionable at best, which includes allowing 49 percent shooting from the field in their last five games. The Phoenix Suns are enjoying their best stretch of the season, winning their last five games by an average of 8.8 points, and they win at home by an average of 6.9 points. This Suns offense should be licking its chops against this Nets defense. I'll lay the bucket with the home team.
