Through 1 Quarter

The Atlanta Hawks typically have all the answers at home, but the Phoenix Suns are posing a tough problem. After one quarter neither squad has the game in the bag, but the Suns lead 30-26.

Phoenix has enjoyed the tag-team combination of shooting guard Devin Booker and power forward Frank Kaminsky. The former has nine points in addition to three boards, while the latter has five points and two assists. Atlanta hasn’t had any offensive standouts so far with all players held to seven points or fewer.

Who’s Playing

Atlanta @ Phoenix

Current Records: Atlanta 4-5; Phoenix 4-3

What to Know

The Phoenix Suns will stay at home another game and welcome the Atlanta Hawks at 10 p.m. ET Nov. 6 at Footprint Center. The Suns are out to keep their three-game home win streak alive.

While not quite a landslide, the contest between Phoenix and the Houston Rockets this past Thursday was still a pretty decisive one as Phoenix wrapped it up with a 123-111 win at home. Phoenix can attribute much of their success to shooting guard Devin Booker, who had 27 points and five assists along with nine boards.

Meanwhile, Atlanta entered their game against the Utah Jazz this past Thursday without any home losses — but there’s a first time for everything. Atlanta lost to Utah at home by a decisive 116-98 margin. A silver lining for the Hawks was the play of point guard Trae Young, who had 21 points and seven assists.

The Suns are the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Phoenix took a serious blow against Atlanta when the two teams previously met in May, falling 135-103. Maybe Phoenix will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
