The Suns and Wizards are on opposite ends of the competitive spectrum at this point. Phoenix is playing for lottery positions, while the Wizards are hoping to get as close to a No. 1 seed as they possibly can.
On paper, this is an easy win for the Wiz. But with the line set at a bloated -13.5, the question is: Can Washington put together a clean enough showing to get the W both SU and ATS.
The Suns enter this game coming off a 114-107 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. They’d won their two games prior to that contest, but they’d also lost three straight before that.
At this point in the season, the Suns aren’t fooling anyone into thinking they’re legitimate. Their two wins were nice when it came to a young group gaining confidence (especially since they were immediately coming off of a controversy with their star player, Eric Bledsoe, and a firing of their head coach, Earl Watson), but that high was short-lived.
Against the Wizards, the Suns need to do whatever it takes to force John Wall into an inefficient game. If he’s hitting jumpers and making plays for others, the Suns won’t stand a chance.
But if Wall is struggling from the field and turning the ball over—both in transition and in the half court—the Suns will have a chance if they can take advantage of those mistakes.
The Wizards are no slouches when it comes to running a fast pace. In fact, they’re tied with the Golden State Warriors for No. 6 in the league, as of this writing.
The catch is that the Suns are on a different level. They’re currently No. 2 in the league in pace behind only the Brooklyn Nets, and keeping up with them is going to be difficult.
If the Wizards are able to control the rock and not give it away too often, playing at a fast pace against another fast pace is just fine. But if Wall and Co. are struggling to keep things in control, they’ll have to slow it down and force the Suns to play a game that is uncomfortable for them.
