7* Friday NBA BRK/PHX
Brooklyn vs. Phoenix,
11/15/2013 21:00 EDT,
Score: 100 - 98
Point Spread: +1/-110 Phoenix
The Phoenix Suns host the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night. Phoenix is coming off a 90-89 loss to Portland, while Brooklyn fell to Sacramento in their last game, 107-86.
The Suns front office's plans to tank this season haven't been a reality. The team is 5-3 on the year, with a 4-0 record at home.
Conversely, the Nets front office's attempt to build a contender appear to have been a triumphant failure. The players on the roster simply don't mesh with one another, with too many players on the roster being used to handling the ball.
Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett each spent the majority of their career being "the guy" for an NBA team, and even Brook Lopez had the offense running through him at Stanford.
The players look good on paper, but as a team they simply haven't meshed.
As for Phoenix, they've been the NBA's best bet this season, posting a 7-0-1 ATS mark through their first eight games. The team has been much better at the defensive end this year, surrendering more than six points per game fewer than they did a year ago.
The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings between these teams.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
