Suns vs Hawks Prediction

The Suns are still missing Damion Lee, while the Hawks are keeping an eye on De'Andre Hunter who is questionable for this one. The Hawks have started to turn things around and they looked great in their big win over the Lakers on Tuesday, but the Suns have clearly been the more consistent team and I think they represent decent value at the short line in this spot.
