With the Phoenix Suns building credibility by winning three of their last four games - it truly is hard to believe that Phoenix is being touted as 2.5-point underdogs against a struggling Sacramento Kings team that has little to brag about during this 2011-12 season. And - if it weren't for the Kings playing on their home court tonight - the story might be different.
Frankly the Suns have an offense that is primed to put in a high scoring performance against a Kings defense that gives up an average of 100.2 points per game all season. You see - with the occasional exception of DeMarcus Cousins on a good night - there is no real NBA-level defensive activity taking place when the Kings have their backs to the hoop.
That makes them much worse than the Suns unimpressive D-unit and opens up a world of possibilities.
Imagine - Steve Nash furthering his team record number of assists as Marcin Gortat shows why more voters should have cast ballots for him to join the ranks of the Western Conference All-Stars when they take to the court in two weeks.
So - while we wouldn't recommend betting the ranch - it is time to throw a few bucks across the cage window and make a profit on this one.
