Portland Trail Blazers vs Phoenix Suns prediction

The Phoenix Suns are finally at full strength, and they're an offensive powerhouse with Durant, Booker, and Beal together. However, the Suns played last night and their defense still has a ways to go. The Suns allowed the Magic to get clean looks from three over and over, and it kept Orlando in the game. Also, let's not pretend like the Trail Blazers didn't beat the Suns a couple of weeks ago. Not my favorite game on the card, but I'd grab the points with the Trail Blazers if forced to pick.
