I’m really tempted with OKC and this many points as the majority of the Suns success and value has come in the underdog role. However, the Thunder are in the playoffs comfortably and still have a couple of opportunities to improve their playoff positioning over the next couple of days and even against the Wizards, playing on a back-to-back can be tough, especially against a Suns team that’s as motivated and playing as well as they have been all season. Phoenix needs to win out and for Memphis to lose their remaining games for the Suns to oust the Grizz from the playoffs and force a play-in against most likely Portland, and with the way Memphis has been sliding since the restart and the fact that the Grizzlies are playing two of the top three teams in the East to finish their bubble schedule, it could happen. I’ll lay the points with Phoenix as my premium pick for this game.
