Current Records: Miami 28-25; Phoenix 38-15
What to Know
The Phoenix Suns are getting right back to it as they host the Miami Heat at 10 p.m. ET April 13 at PHX Arena. Phoenix is out to keep their eight-game home win streak alive.
Even if it wasn't a dominant performance, the Suns beat the Houston Rockets 126-120 on Monday. Phoenix can attribute much of their success to power forward Jae Crowder, who shot 8-for-12 from beyond the arc and finished with 26 points.
Meanwhile, Miami picked up a 107-98 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday. Miami's small forward Jimmy Butler did his thing and had 20 points and five assists.
Phoenix is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Minnesota Timberwolves March 18 easily too and instead slipped up with a 123-119. In other words, don't count the Heat out just yet.
