The Suns will look to pull off a huge upset and ruin the Rockets season when they head into Houston on Thursday night.
Houston trails by just a 0.5 for the 8th spot in the West, which makes this game nothing short of a must win.
Phoenix has had a horrific season. They’ve had many losing streaks reach double digits and even had stretches like losses in 19 of 20. They can earn a small consolation prize with the spoiler role here, as they get a chance to really put a damper on the Rockets chances.
Phoenix comes in losers of 7 in a row and things haven’t been pretty by any means for them. The Suns went into Atlanta last time out and couldn’t handle the Hawks defensive effort as they put just 90 points in as they fell 103-90.
The road just hasn’t been kind to the Suns either. They have just 7 wins on the season compared to 32 losses. In that span, they’ve gone just 13-26 ATS as well, losing a lot of units for backers.
Phoenix fell by 16 at home back in February to the Rockets as they allowed 116 points in the defeat.
It’s safe to say everything about this game is an absolute must win. Going against one of the worst teams in the NBA right in the middle of a playoff push is a given.
Houston sits in 9th, just 0.5 behind 8th pace Utah and 1.0 game behind 7th place Dallas. Everything is still in grasp of the Rockets and getting the Suns here is a blessing. However, they will take on Dallas, Wednesday night, and given the 1.0 game that separates them this is a giant stretch for the Rockets.
Houston will be on the road in Dallas, before returning home here and home court has been nice for Houston. The Rockets have gone 21-17 SU, but has had their offense clicking scoring an average of 105 points per home contest.
They have been a horrible ATS team as well overall, going just 34-43 for backers.
