Suns vs Thunder prediction

Big game for both sides as the Thunder are fighting for the top seed in the West and the Suns are hoping to get out of the play-in tournament. The key here is that Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is doubtful with a quadriceps injury. The Suns are healthy outside of Nurkic being questionable with an ankle injury. The Suns are also coming off a big upset win over the Nuggets. We also can't forget that the Thunder have cooled off ATS with covers in just 3 of their last 10 games. With SGA likely out, I'll lay the bucket with the Suns on the road.
