Tuesday night NBA sees an inter-conference battle between one team fighting for its playoff life and another tanking (er…trying out new lineups and developing young players) for the rest of the year.
*All statistics, standings, rankings, records and trends are current as of this writing at 8:00 p.m. ET on Monday, March 20, 2017.
If Phoenix wasn’t taking immediately following the All-Star break, there’s no question it’s doing it now.
At this point, both Tyson Chandler and Brandon Knight have been ruled out for the remainder of the season. Devin Booker and Eric Bledsoe haven’t, but both have been sitting, and the former is questionable for this contest.
Overall, this is the right move for Phoenix. You hate to see a young team with pace and spacing abilities devalue the entertainment of the product they put on the floor, but this season is about building for the future.
Part of that building process includes accumulating assets — and yes, draft picks are assets.
On the year, Phoenix is averaging 107.3 points per night. That number is good enough for ninth in the NBA.
Defensively, the Suns aren’t nearly as impressive. This squad is allowing its opponents to score 112.5 points per game, which puts them in 29th — one spot out of dead last.
Miami isn’t dealing with the same kind of injury trouble the Suns are, but it has been missing Dion Waiters as of late. The one-time joke of an NBA player has turned into a legitimate offensive force, so keep an eye on his status ahead of this contest.
On the year, Miami is averaging 102.9 points per game. That number is only good enough for 23rd in the Association.
Defensively, this squad is giving up just 102.1 points per night.
That number is good enough for fifth in the league and is the primary reason this team is so hot (despite coming off a loss to the Portland Trail Blazers) and looks like it could actually do some damage in the postseason.
Provided they can avoid the eighth seed and a first-round showdown with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Free Phoenix Suns vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
Phoenix is a team that has been known to get out and score with ease, which makes it decent ATS on the season despite its paltry overall record. On the year, the Suns are just 22-48 straight up, but 24-25 against the spread.
The problem is that we’ve hit the portion of the year where playing for ping-pong balls matters most, and that’s only emphasized further by the fact that the Suns have begun shutting down players for the year — or at least more often than they maybe need to.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: There is NO Odds currently posted. A free final score prediction is provided below.
Combine that with the fact that Miami is in desperation mode for the playoffs, and you’ve got every reason to believe the Heat walk away with a convincing win Tuesday night.
