The Phoenix Suns have a basketball sports betting record of 6-4 straight up and 5-5 against the spread with an even 5-5 split on over/unders. The Suns have paid out in 3 of their 5 road games so far this season.
Phoenix has won 5 of their last 6 games heading into this matchup, including 3 straight, and is coming off a 100-94 home win over Denver, which followed a 121-116 upset win at the Los Angeles Lakers. The Suns run and gun offensive style has remained as they rank 3rd in the NBA for scoring but 29th for points allowed.
Guard Jason Richardson leads Phoenix with 21.2 points per game while fellow guard Steve Nash is averaging 19.5 points per game along with 9.6 assists per game. One concern for Phoenix beyond defense is that they are a weak rebounding team.

The smack talk of an undefeated season or even a run at the 1996 Chicago Bulls NBA record for wins in a season has died down as the reality for Miami as that they have not yet jelled as a team.
The Heat rank 9th in the NBA for scoring and 5th for total defense. Dwyane Wade lead Miami with 24.7 points per game while Lebron James has 22.3 points per game along with 8.9 assists per outing. Chris Bosh has been something of a disappointment with 14.5 points per game and 6 rebounds per night.
