Suns topple Grizzles
Phoenix picked up a 114-105 victory Saturday night at Memphis to improve to 4-2 overall and 2-1 on the road. The Suns trailed by two at halftime before outscoring the Grizzlies 37-22 in the third quarter to take control.

NBA Betting Trends
The Sixers are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games overall. Philadelphia is 25-10 ATS in its last 35 games versus the Pacific Division.
The Suns are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games. Phoenix is 8-3 ATS in its last 11 Monday games.
The Sixers are in the same boat as the Timberwolves after their respective centers duked it out last week and subsequently got suspended for two games each. Philadelphia banded together and squeaked out a win at Portland, but now it gets to face a Phoenix team playing with a ton of confidence right now and getting the job done on the defensive end. I see this as a letdown spot for the 76ers and am going with the Suns as the small dogs.
