The San Antonio Spurs will be looking to extend their winning streak to four games on Friday when hosting the visiting Phoenix Suns. This will be the second time this week the Western Conference foes have clashed. The Spurs eked out a 120-118 victory over the Suns on Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday. They recently knocked off the New Orleans Pelicans, while the Suns are coming off an ugly 112-87 loss to the Indiana Pacers.

Larry Fitzgerald a new face for the Suns
Legendary NFL receiver Larry Fitzgerald has officially bought a minority stake
in the Suns organization. You can rest assured the team will use him in any way possible as a recruitment tool and an ambassador for the future. They need all the help they can get with the franchise in the middle of another losing season. The team is on the verge of losing a third consecutive game after dropping back-to-back losses to the Indiana Pacers and San Antonio Spurs.
Fans will hold their collective breath for a turnaround in Friday’s road trip to take on the San Antonio Spurs. The Suns are ranked 18th in the league in defensive efficiency with opposing teams averaging 114.5 points per game against them on the road. San Antonio has looked disastrous on defense at times, but they have the offensive firepower to back the Suns into a corner.
They are averaging 114.1 points per game on their home floor.
The Suns have been too reliant on Devin Booker, Kelly Oubre and Deandre Ayton to shoot them out of defensive timeout. That obviously doesn’t always work, especially if the opposing team can get stops. The sputtering Spurs’ defense could quickly aid in this game turning into an offensive shootout.
Center Aron Baynes is questionable for the game with a hip injury, while rookie Cameron Johnson has already been ruled out with a quad injury.
