Devin Booker is averaging 26 points and 4.5 assists while Chris Paul is averaging 16.2 points and 4.7 rebounds.

The Heat are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Suns are 25-9 ATS in their last 34 home games and 42-18 ATS in their last 60 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Heat last 5 overall. The over is 6-1 in Suns last 7 overall. The Heat are 11-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Phoenix and 20-6 ATS in the last 26 meetings.
The Miami Heat are playing their best ball of the season right now and have the rest advantage. There's value with the Heat and the free bucket. However, the Phoenix Suns continue to be cash cows, as they've been money both straight up and against the spread dating back to the NBA bubble. The Suns are printing money this point, especially at home where they're now 20-9 against the spread at home. I'll continue to blindly back the Suns as long as the tickets keep cashing.
