Houston vs. Phoenix preview

The Phoenix Suns enter today's home game as losers of their last 11 games, which has them at a 22-55 overall record. They're being speculated to be one of the teams with a top three draft pick this summer along with the Lakers and Celtics. Devin Booker made headlines by scoring 70 points in a game against Boston, albeit a loss. He continues to lead the team in scoring average with 21.9 points per game. This team is still young, and some analysts are even speculating that the team is "tanking" in order to have a better shot at the No. 1 pick in this June's draft.

The Houston Rockets are also on a losing streak, having lost three-straight now. Reportedly, their top star, James Harden, will be out of action due to "flu-like symptoms." Even with Harden and teammate Trevor Ariza listed as "out" for today's game, Houston seems to have plenty of available firepower.

The team traded for the LA Lakers leading scorer, Lou Williams, who has been a sparkplug off the bench.

In addition, Eric Gordon has shown during his career that he's got the ability to lead the way in games, so this could still be an easy "W" for Houston. The team has already clinched a playoff spot and seems to be holding on firmly to the No.

3 spot in the West giving them home court advantage in at least the first round.

Houston is a 6.5-point road favorite in tonight's game and priced at -280 on the moneyline, while Phoenix is a +240 underdog. Tonight's points total to speculate on is 227.5 points for the game.
