The Phoenix Suns and Memphis Grizzlies meet Saturday in NBA action at the FedExForum.

The Phoenix Suns look to stay hot after winning seven of their last eight games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 111.3 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 108 points on 45.9 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 36.2 percent from beyond the arc and 83.5 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.3 rebounds per game.

The Memphis Grizzlies look for a win after winning four of their last six games. The Memphis Grizzlies are averaging 111.8 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 112.5 points on 48 percent shooting. Ja Morant is averaging 18.4 points and eight assists while Jonas Valanciunas is averaging 16.6 points and 11.1 rebounds.

The Suns are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 road games and 25-10 ATS in their last 35 games overall. The Grizzlies are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games. The over is 4-1 in Suns last 5 overall. The over is 10-1 in Grizzlies last 11 overall. The Suns are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Memphis and 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

Both teams are playing on the end of a back to back, but it's the Phoenix Suns who are playing the better basketball and should have even more confidence after coming back against the Pelicans last night. In their last five games, the Suns are winning by an average of 6.2 points while shooting 52.8 percent from the field. The Memphis Grizzlies need to prove to me they can hang with the better teams in the league. We're not being asked to lay a whole lot. I'll eat the bucket with the Suns.
