The Suns are the first team to officially be out of Finals contention, with Devon Booker the only starter currently with a heartbeat.

The Hornets have dropped 5 straight, with their own Finals hopes fading fast.

We’ll take the Hornets, with a home record above .500 the only swaying factor, but that line’s too high for our liking. Overs best, but we’ll wait for the line.

Best Bet  = Phoenix +10.5

Tough one to call here.

Washington took care of the Heat in OT 117-113 in Washington a few days back, but the Heat have won six of the last eight meetings despite the recent loss in Washington.

Overs best but we’ll wait for the line.
