Detroit Pistons vs Phoenix Suns News
The Phoenix Suns enter Thursday’s contest with the Detroit Pistons as the NBA’s hottest team.
After starting 1-3, the defending Western Conference Champions have rattled off 17-straight wins and currently sit tied with the Golden State Warriors for the No. 1 seed.
However, the Suns will be without guard Devin Booker for at least a few games after exiting in the first half against the Warriors Tuesday.
On the other side, the Pistons sit at the very bottom of the Eastern Conference and have lost their last seven games.
I wrote in a piece highlighting rookies early on that Cade Cunningham hadn’t really impressed me yet this season. I would say that’s still the case, however, he did score a career-high 26 points last time out against the Portland Trail Blazers.
For me, facets of Cunningham’s game we were sold on haven’t really been there yet, like his playmaking. Maybe I’m too harsh on him because he’s the No. 1 pick, but I feel like No. 1 overall picks should move the needle at least a little bit for your team.
Detroit Pistons vs Phoenix Suns Preview
Against the spread, the Pistons are 10-11 this season and 5-6 on the road.
The Suns are 12-9 ATS this season and 6-5 as a home favorite.
The over is 9-12 in Pistons games and 5-6 when Detroit is an away underdog.
The over is 9-12 in Suns games and 5-6 in when a home favorite.
Detroit Pistons vs Phoenix Suns Picks
With no Devin Booker late in Tuesday’s game, we saw Chris Paul bring out the old bag of tricks we last got to see on their playoff run last year.
While I think the Suns will have no problem taking care of business against Detroit tonight, I’m not sure how much energy Paul is willing to expend in this one. Going head-to-head with another top team and top player in the league on prime time is one thing, a Thursday night game against Detroit is another.
I’m on the under.
