The Phoenix Suns and the Miami Heat duke it out at the Kaseya Center on Monday night. Here’s a Suns vs Heat Prediction.

Phoenix Suns

The Phoenix Suns have cooled off a bit from their seven-game win streak as they are now looking to avoid a third straight defeat after getting routed by the Magic in a 113-98 road loss last night. Devin Booker led the team with 44 points on 17 of 26 shooting, Kevin Durant added 15 points with five assists but no other player finished in double figures in scoring. As a team, the Suns shot 56 percent from the field and four of 14 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in control when they poured in 37 points in the first quarter to take a 13-point lead, but they never put the Magic away and it cost them as they got outscored by 31-13 in the fourth quarter to lose big in the end.

Phoenix Suns Player Facts

  • Grayson Allen ranks 1st amongst qualified players for 3P% (49.8%) this season.
  • Kevin Durant ranks 4th amongst qualified players for 3P% (45.4%) this season.

Miami Heat

Meanwhile, the Miami Heat have been in a real funk as they are now hoping to put an end to a six-game slide after getting thrashed by the Knicks in a 125-109 road loss on Saturday. Jimmy Butler led the team with 28 points, eight rebounds and four assists, Duncan Robinson added 19 points off the bench while Tyler Herro chipped in with 18 points. As a team, the Heat shot 46 percent from the field and 14 of 37 from the 3-point line, but as has been the case during this losing streak, the Heat couldn't put together a 48-minute performance and let it slip in the fourth quarter where they allowed 36 points.

Miami Heat Player Facts

  • Bam Adebayo ranks 8th amongst qualified players for rebounds per game (10.5) this season.
  • Tyler Herro ranks 8th amongst qualified players for three-pointers made Per Game (3.3) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Heat rank 30th in the league for blocks per game this season (3.3).
  • The Heat rank 2nd in the league for opponent offensive rebounds per game this season (9.5).
  • The Suns rank 30th in the league for Q4 points per game this season (24.5).
  • The Suns rank 1st in the league for Q3 win percentage this season (67.4%).

Suns vs Heat Prediction

The Suns are still a little shorthanded with Jusuf Nurkic still out, while the Heat are coming into this one with a full squad which has been rare this season. The Suns have dropped their last two games, but they were one of the hottest teams in the league during their seven-game win streak and I think they can start another one against this slumping Heat team who have dropped six straight.
