Through 3 Quarters

Only one more quarter stands between the Phoenix Suns and the win they were favored to collect going into this night. Three quarters in and their offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating the Sacramento Kings 98-76.

Point guard Cameron Payne (19 points) and shooting guard Devin Booker (18 points) have been the top scorers for Phoenix.

Small forward Harrison Barnes has led the way so far for Sacramento, as he has 18 points in addition to six rebounds.

This is the most points the Suns have had yet this year going into the fourth quarter.

What to Know

The Phoenix Suns have enjoyed the comforts of home their last five games, but now they must head out on the road. Phoenix and the Sacramento Kings will face off in a Pacific Division battle at 10 p.m. ET on Monday at Golden 1 Center. The Suns will be strutting in after a victory while Sacramento will be stumbling in from a defeat.

The Atlanta Hawks typically have all the answers at home, but this past Saturday Phoenix proved too difficult a challenge. Phoenix came out on top in a nail-biter against Atlanta, sneaking past 121-117. Phoenix's shooting guard Devin Booker did his thing and shot 5-for-9 from beyond the arc and finished with 38 points and six rebounds.

Speaking of close games: the Kings were close but no cigar on Sunday as they fell 94-91 to the Indiana Pacers. Despite the loss, Sacramento got a solid performance out of small forward Harrison Barnes, who had 22 points and five assists.

Phoenix is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. They are currently three-for-three against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

It was close but no cigar for Phoenix as they fell 110-107 to Sacramento in the teams' previous meeting last month. Can the Suns avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
