The Portland Trail Blazers and Phoenix Suns meet Friday in NBA action at the Footprint Center. The Portland Trail Blazers look to build on their 5-2 record. The Phoenix Suns look to build on their 5-game winning streak.

The Portland Trail Blazers are averaging 114 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 110.6 points on 46.3 percent shooting. Damian Lillard is averaging 31 points and 4.8 rebounds, while Anfernee Simons is averaging 22 points and 2.9 rebounds. Jerami Grant is the third double-digit scorer and Jusuf Nurkic is grabbing 12.3 rebounds. The Portland Trail Blazers are shooting 37.9 percent from beyond the arc and 78.9 percent from the free throw line. The Portland Trail Blazers are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.4 rebounds per game.

The Phoenix Suns are averaging 118.3 points on 48.8 percent shooting and allowing 106.4 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 27.7 points and 5.4 assists, while Mikal Bridges is averaging 15.9 points and 5.4 rebounds.

The Trail Blazers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Suns are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 10-2 in Trail Blazers last 12 overall. The under is 13-5 in Suns last 18 games playing on 2 days rest. The Trail Blazers are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Phoenix and 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings.

Thick line, but you can only expect so much from the Portland Trail Blazers with no Lillard, and now Anfernee Simons is questionable with a foot injury. The Trail Blazers will be asking a lot of their role players, and we all know role players aren't at their best on the road. The Phoenix Suns are putting together a nice little stretch, and they're winning by an average of 16.6 points during their 5-game winning streak. A steep line, but it's the Suns or pass for me.
