Monday night's game will feature the hottest team in the league in town to face the struggling San Antonio Spurs. Riding a 12-game winning streak, the Phoenix Suns will be heavily favored to keep things rolling.
Despite the return of Jakob Poeltl, the Spurs suffered their most embarrassing loss of the season against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday but have had three days to rest. His reconditioning will be vital for the season to turn around, as he was having a career year as the Spurs' anchor down low until COVID protocols struck.
Meanwhile, the Suns are coming off a dominant win over a Jokic-less Denver Nuggets squad by a score of 126-97. Cameron Johnson had his best game of the season, putting up 22 points on 9-of-15 shooting.

San Antonio Spurs vs Phoenix Suns Prediction
While the Suns are proving their early 1-3 start was a fluke, the Spurs are struggling to find their footing on a nightly basis.
Besides having the advantage of star power in Devin Booker and Chris Paul, the Suns are a well-balanced, well-oiled machine that's visiting San Antonio at the peak of their basketball season.
The Spurs badly need Poeltl to be back to 100% to compete as they were doing early in the season, so hopefully their three days off helped with that. Still, I have a hard time seeing this Spurs team coming out on top without a number of huge performances from guys other than Dejounte Murray.
I'm giving San Antonio a fighting chance giving their desperation and that it's a home game, but they'll likely come up just short again.
Suns 113, Spurs 108
