The Coach's NBA Sunday Night SLAUGHTERHOUSE
(NBA) Phoenix vs. Memphis, 01/11/2015 1:00 PM, Score: 110 - 122
Point Spread: 5.50 | -107.00 Phoenix (Away)
Result: Loss
The Phoenix Suns currently own the eighth and final playoff spot in the West, with a 2.5 game lead on the ninth place Pelicans. They play on the road in Memphis tonight, and I like the visitors getting points in this spot. The Suns have won 10 of their last 13 games, and none of those three losses came by a margin as great as tonight's number.

Here are my keys to the game:

1: Grizzlies Slumping - Memphis has lost seven of it's last 11 overall, and even the return of Zach Randolph wasn't enough avoid losing to New Orleans on Friday.


2. Brandon Wright - The former Maverick/Celtic is expected to make his debut for the Suns tonight. He leads in the NBA in field goal percentage with a staggering 72.4%, and he's also averaging 3.8 blocks per 48 minutes (among the league's best).

3: X-Factor - The Suns are 10-2-1 ATS in their last 13 games overall.

Selection: This is a play on the Phoenix Suns (8*)
