Phoenix enters with a 2-4 record after a 114-107 loss at the Trail Blazers. The Nets are 3-4 following a 124-111 home loss to the Nuggets. Brooklyn won both meetings last season straight up and ATS. The over-under went 1-1.

The under is 5-0 in the last five meetings in Brooklyn. Phoenix is 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings in Brooklyn.
The Suns are averse to playing defense and have an up-tempo offense, while Brooklyn plays run-and-gun basketball. This could be one of the highest-scoring games of the season. If it's not, that's basketball. But the smart play here is the over.
