Ron's NBA Restart Slam Dunk
Phoenix Suns (26-39) at Washington Wizards (24-40)

The Suns take on the Wizards on Friday night for day 2 of the NBA restart.
The Wizards will be without their heart and soul in Bradley Beal during this restart period in Orlando. Beal was the most efficient player on the court for Washington, and he was the team's highest scorer by more than half of the guy behind him. Without Beal, the Wizards' offense is going to struggle.
The Suns looked great in the NBA Scrimmages, defeating some tough competition in the Jazz and Raptors. Mikal Bridges was fantastic during these games, and I expect guys like him and Ricky Rubio to be difference makers for the Suns during these regular-season restart games. Although the Suns have a long-shot chance at the playoffs, I still like their chances in this game against a far inferior team without their star.
I will take the Suns and lay the hefty chalk.
