INJURY TO WATCH
Suns shooting guard Troy Daniels missed the last game with a hyperextended knee, but is expected to return tonight. Point guard Tyler Ulis is out indefinitely with a back injury. For the Thunder, the only injury on its report is Andre Roberson as he is out for the season with a ruptured patellar tendon.
Say what you will about the Suns, but they seem to always play the Thunder tough. Phoenix had its three-game straight up and ATS win streak snapped in the last meeting, but was still in it until late in a 124-116 home loss to OKC on March 2. With the Thunder so often playing down to their competition, I like the Suns to stay within the number tonight. The Thunder have not defeated an opponent by double digits in nearly a month.
