The Phoenix Suns are one of the hottest teams in the NBA early in the 2021-22 season. Phoenix began the season with a 1-3 record, but the club is unbeaten since they dropped a 110-107 game to the Sacramento Kings on October 27. Phoenix looks to extend its winning streak to 14 consecutive games when the team travels to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers on Wednesday, November 24 at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.
The Cleveland Cavaliers had an okay start to the 2021-22 NBA season, but things have taken a turn for the worse for the club since the middle of November. Cleveland was 9-5 when they faced the Boston Celtics on November 15. Today, the team is .500 after losing to Boston and dropping its three games after that. Three of those losses, including the team’s 117-112 setback on Monday to Brooklyn, have come at home.

Phoenix has averaged 117.7 points in its past three games. The team has topped the 119 mark five times this year. With Cleveland’s poor home defense, I would go with the over in this matchup.
