Who’s Playing

Phoenix @ San Antonio

Current Records: Phoenix 13-3; San Antonio 4-11

What to Know

The San Antonio Spurs will be returning home after a three-game road trip. They will take on the Phoenix Suns at 8:30 p.m. ET Monday at AT&T Center after having had a few days off. If the game is anything like Phoenix’s 123-121 victory from their previous meeting in May, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

The Spurs have to be hurting after a devastating 115-90 defeat at the hands of the Minnesota Timberwolves this past Thursday. One thing holding San Antonio back was the mediocre play of point guard Dejounte Murray, who did not have his best game: he finished with only seven points on 2-for-12 shooting in his 32 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, the Suns made easy work of the Denver Nuggets on Sunday and carried off a 126-97 win. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Phoenix had established a 100-78 advantage. Their success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but center Deandre Ayton led the charge as he had 21 points along with eight boards.

San Antonio is expected to lose this next one by 5.5. Now might not be the best time to take San Antonio against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past four consecutive games.

Phoenix’s win lifted them to 13-3 while San Antonio’s loss dropped them down to 4-11. We’ll see if the Suns can repeat their recent success or if the Spurs bounce back and reverse their fortune.
