Memphis vs. Phoenix, 04/14/2014 22:00 EDT, Score: 97 - 91

Point Spread: +3½/-110 Memphis

Sportsbook: BookMaker

Result: Win

This is a defacto playoff game tonight in Phoenix. The Suns have to win this one or they are officially eliminated from postseason contention. In a game with this type of pressure you have to go with the experience and toughness of this Memphis team that has been here before in high-pressure situations and a team that has a ton of playoff experience under their belt to draw from. This team would not even be in this situation if not for a slow start to the season under a new coach and a major injury to Marc Gasol that kept him out of the lineup for an extended period. Don’t get us wrong, we have been very impressed with this Suns team this season. They have been one of the best in the league ATS all year, and they play hard every night. Just think they are outmatched here in this do-or-die situation, and we expect the better team to win here, and the points are just a bonus in case the game is close at the end. Memphis has won all three meetings this season pretty comfortably, and they even got a 9-point win here in Phoenix earlier in the season.
