This Phoenix Suns team has dominated Atlanta with six wins in their past seven against the Hawks. Note that Phoenix is a western conference team so they go to war with a much tougher schedule than the Hawks who play much more mediocre teams on their schedule. We saw Memphis on Thursday night go into Atlanta and come away with a 20 point road win. The Portland Trailblazers won at Atlanta and the Trailblazers are a team that cannot win on the road as evidenced with a road loss to a horrible Sacramento team.
Phoenix will be a rested team here having played on Saturday night in a home win against the Charlotte Bobcats where the bench contributed in the win. The Suns have roads win this season at Boston by eight points and by three points at the New York Knicks. They dropped a six point decision at Dallas. The Suns have added Michael Redd into the starting rotation and produced 17 points in the team’s home win at Charlotte. Steve Nash has dished out 29 assists over his past three games and has shown the ability to score as well as evidenced by his 30 points at New Orleans. Center Marcin Gortat is producing 15 points and 10 rebounds per game for the Suns this season. Nash played 33 minutes on Saturday and no other Sun logged in more than 28 minutes so the team will be fresh here.
The Hawks have dropped two straight games and all losses came at home. They put up 77 points in a loss to Memphis and on Saturday night dropped a 98-87 home decision to the 76ers as a -3 point favorite. The team is playing without six foot ten inch power forward Al Horford who is out for another two months with a shoulder issue. He was an efficient player for the Hawks with a 55.3% shooting percentage and pulls down seven rebounds a game. With Horford out of the lineup teams can now focus on Josh Smith and Smith is not producing. He is averaging just over 8 points a game over the teams past four games. The Suns bring offense on the road with a 97 point per game average this year and 44.6% shooting. Atlanta will be challenged here to generate enough points to cover this game against a rested Suns team. Sun cover this inflated spread.
