The Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat meet Tuesday in NBA action at the AmericanAirlines Arena.
The Phoenix Suns look to stay hot after winning 11 of their last 14 games. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 114.1 points on 49 percent shooting and allowing 107.5 points on 45.8 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 25.2 points and 4.6 assists while Chris Paul is averaging 15.9 points and 4.8 rebounds. Deandre Ayton is the third double-digit scorer and Mikal Bridges is dishing 2.4 assists. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 38.4 percent from beyond the arc and 82.8 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 34.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.4 rebounds per game.
The Miami Heat need a win here to snap a three game losing streak. The Miami Heat are averaging 106.3 points on 45.7 percent shooting and allowing 107.6 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Jimmy Butler is averaging 21.6 points and 7.5 assists while Bam Adebayo is averaging 19.2 points and 9.5 rebounds. Tyler Herro is the third double-digit scorer and Goran Dragic is grabbing 3.3 rebounds. The Miami Heat are shooting 34.3 percent from beyond the arc and 79.6 percent from the free throw line. The Miami Heat are allowing 36.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.8 rebounds per game.
The Suns are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 road games and 38-14 ATS in their last 52 games overall. The Heat are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 Tuesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Suns last 7 road games. The under is 7-3 in Heat last 10 overall. The Suns are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Miami and 6-21 ATS in the last 27 meetings.
This line is quite confusing, as the Phoenix Suns have been the better, more consistent team this season and they've been covering machines dating back to the NBA bubble. The Miami Heat are playing their best ball of the season right now, but they've also lost three straight games, they can't make an open shot and they're shooting a rough 42.3 percent from the field in their last five games. Right now, the Suns are the better team. I'll take the free point with the Suns on the road.
