The Suns take on the Cavaliers on Friday night looking to bounce back after the Hawks ended their five-game winning streak Wednesday.

Phoenix has been impressive all season, but that’s been especially true over its most recent stretch of games. Chris Paul has received some MVP love for his play and leadership having such an immense impact on the Suns, who possess top-10 offensive and defensive ratings, per NBA Advanced Stats.

This means that the Knicks — an excellent defense team themselves — will have their work cut out for them on Friday.

New York has been one of the most tenacious defensive units in the league all season. This, along with the dominant play of Julius Randle, is what has led to its great success against the spread (ATS) this season.
