The Phoenix Suns have gone ice-cold all of a sudden, losing their last 5 games by an average of 7 points and not playing a lick of defense. The Sacramento Kings have been at their best at home, and they win in the favorite role by an average of 6.2 points. The Kings have thrived in these spots all year, and they're in much better form. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Kings at home.
