The Cleveland Cavaliers and Phoenix Suns meet Saturday in NBA action at the Footprint Center. The Cleveland Cavaliers look for a win to get a game above a .500 record. The Phoenix Suns need a win here to rebound from a sluggish 1-3 start.

Collin Sexton is averaging 20.4 points and two assists, while Ricky Rubio is averaging 14.4 points and 3.8 rebounds. Jarrett Allen is the third double-digit scorer and Evan Mobley is grabbing 8.6 rebounds. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 28.2 percent from beyond the arc and 79.5 percent from the free throw line. The Cleveland Cavaliers are allowing 30.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.4 rebounds per game.
The Phoenix Suns are averaging 106.3 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 114.8 points on 47.8 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 21.5 points and 4.8 rebounds, while Mikal Bridges is averaging 16.5 points and 4.3 rebounds.

The Cavaliers are 9-24 ATS in their last 33 road games and 18-40-1 ATS in their last 59 games overall. The Suns are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 8-3-1 in Cavaliers last 12 road games. The under is 4-1 in Suns last 5 overall. The Cavaliers are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Phoenix.
The Cleveland Cavaliers put up an honest effort last night against the Lakers, but they ran out of gas in the fourth quarter. That's not a good sign when going on the road to play the Suns on the end of a back to back. The Phoenix Suns have yet to find their footing, but they're better than what they've shown up to this point, and they're probably due for a breakout performance. The Cavs will have tired legs here, and we could easily see a blowout. Give me the Suns in a route.
