The Suns are out of it and have been for a very long time. I actually backed them against Boston and earlier in the week and they came through. You have to check who they have in the lineup for this one. When Devin Booker isn’t in the game things can look very lean for this group. They are so up and down.
Houston is elite and has the luxury of not having to push themselves with Golden State struggling through injuries. This should be a blowout but they could also be thoroughly uninterested to tread carefully.
Per the intro the Suns were able to keep it close enough against Boston. In fairness to the Celtics they are pretty depleted right now. That is not the case for the Rockets though they could certainly see this as a natural rest spot.
To keep things close against Houston it is going to be all about firepower. At this time it looks like the Suns will be without top contributors in Booker and TJ Warren. Though it is possible they see the floor.
With them unavailable rookie Josh Jackson has been showing his potential. He is an electric athlete though not much of a shooter. I do like his activity. He is always moving and puts pressure on the defense.
Injuries may also be robbing the Suns of any interior presence with Tyson Chandler unlikely to see the court again this season and Alex Len questionable midweek. Rebounding could be a problem.
Dragan Bender is not showing a ton in his second season but he is going to get all the playing time he can handle down the stretch, for better or worse.
The Rockets are flying. Since seeing their long winning streak end at Toronto they have rattled off 10 in a row, making them 27-1 over that span. Impressive. They are also covering most of the time, 6-4 ATS run and some of the spreads are getting up there. This should be somewhere in the -13 to -15 range.
After posting a triple double against the Hawks in a win James Harden got a rest day against the Bulls in their last game. He is expected to play in this one but it would not surprise if they rested another key player, like Chris Paul or maybe even Clint Capela as the Suns really have no inside presence to be concerned about.
Houston has the best record in the league and big cushion in the Western Conference over the Warriors. There is not much to play for other then to feel great once the playoffs begin. Truthfully I will be looking in other directions down the stretch.

Free Phoenix Suns vs. Houston Rockets NBA Prediction:
Look for the Rockets to be favourites by a big number here, especially if they are going to be at full strength.
Even though I backed the Suns and got the cover against Boston and looking to quit while I am ahead. Plus that game was at home.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
I feel like I snuck in that win backing Phoenix against the Celtics. It just wasn’t a good spot for the C. But I will not press my luck.
