The San Antonio Spurs and Phoenix Suns meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Footprint Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 112.5 points on 46.5 percent shooting and allowing 122.8 points on 50.7 percent shooting. Keldon Johnson is averaging 21.8 points and 5 rebounds, while Devin Vassell is averaging 18.8 points and 3.6 assists. Devonte’ Graham is the third double-digit scorer and Tre Jones is grabbing 3.4 rebounds. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 34.4 percent from beyond the arc and 74.1 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 39.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.4 rebounds per game.

The Phoenix Suns are averaging 113.6 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 111.5 points on 46.5 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 28.2 points and 5.4 assists, while Kevin Durant is averaging 26.7 points and 7.3 rebounds. Deandre Ayton is the third double-digit scorer and Chris Paul is grabbing 4.3 rebounds. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 37.6 percent from beyond the arc and 79.4 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 35.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.2 rebounds per game.

The Spurs are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 road games and 9-23 ATS in their last 32 games overall. The Suns are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 Tuesday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Spurs last 5 overall. The over is 10-4-1 in Suns last 15 overall. The Spurs are 4-0-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Phoenix.

I'm not running to the window to lay this sort of chalk, but the San Antonio Spurs are big underdogs every night and they don't cover numbers. The Spurs are losing their last 5 games by an average of 14.8 points, and they lose on the road by an average of 14.4 points. The Phoenix Suns can be a bit up and down, and they're still trying to work Durant into the mix, but I can't get behind the Spurs. It's Suns or pass for me.
