The Phoenix Suns and the San Antonio Spurs meet tonight in a Western Conference contest with huge playoff implications. The Suns are 6.5 favorites, with a total of 210.5 points expected tonight. ESPN will air this clash starting at 10:30 EDT.

Phoenix fans must be happy that Amar'e Stoudemire stayed with the Suns during the trading deadline, because the Suns have the look of a championship contender of late. Phoenix has won 10 of their past 11 games SU, as they've surged all the way up into a logjam of teams competing for the #2 seen in the Western Conference. The Suns have been winning of last on the road, as they went 5-1 SU during a recent 6 game stretch. The Suns have scored more than 100 PTS in 17 of their past 20 games. Phoenix leads the NBA in scoring, as the only team averaging more than 110 PPG with 110.4 PPG this season. The Suns are 50-27 SU and 44-32-1 ATS overall this season. The Suns are 29-9 SU and 21-15-2 ATS in home games this season. The Suns have played well in the role of favorite, going 30-21 ATS this season. Phoenix has been dominant in the 2nd half of the regular season, going 19-8 ATS during this stretch. All 5 starters average at least 11 PPG this season for the Suns.

PG Steve Nash averages 16.6 PPG and an NBA high 11 APG this season for Phoenix.

The Suns are 4-12-1 ATS in their last 17 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The over is 7-0 in the Suns last 7 home games following a road trip of 7 or more days. Center Robin Lopez won't be playing tonight, as he's nursing a bad back.

The old veteran group known as San Antonio is quietly flying under the radar as the playoffs draw near. The Spurs have won 6 out of their last 7 games SU, and are only 2 wins away from yet another 50 win season. The Spurs are 48-29 SU and 42-34-1 ATS overall this season. The Spurs are 9-8 ATS as the listed underdog this season, and they are facing one of their highest underdog spreads of the season tonight. The Spurs have done well against the Pacific Division this year, going 11-5 ATS. San Antonio just got back PG Tony Parker from injury, yet lost their all world fill in PG George Hill. The Spurs are led by the trio of C Tim Duncan, Parker, and G Manu Ginobli. Most people don't realize just how good this Spurs bench is though, as it's been an offensive weapon for this team all season long. San Antonio has been one of the highest scoring bench units in the NBA, with much thanks to Ginobli. Ginobli averages 16.6 PPG this season, including 126 made 3

pointers this season. Each game the Spurs play is critical for them, as they are doing everything they can to avoid the #8 seed in the West as they are attempting to avoid facing the Lakers in the 1st Round of the playoffs.

The Spurs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog. The under is 12-4-1 in their last 17 games playing on 0 days rest. The Spurs can't seem to stay healthy. As soon as they got star point guard Tony Parker back from injury, his original replacement in George Hill went out with an ankle injury. Forward Antonio McDyess is listed as questionable with a knee injury.

Pregame.com projects the final score to be 104-103 in favor of the Phoenix Suns. The San Antonio Spurs +6.5 is the Play of the Day!
