Miles scored a season-high 21 points and Brevin Knight had six assists and 12 points for the Jazz in that game according to NBA betting stats. Deron Williams did not play in the earlier matchup due to injury but he is back healthy and gives Utah a great one-two punch with Boozer. Amare Stoudemire led Phoenix with 30 points and eight rebounds in the earlier loss to the Jazz according to NBA betting statistics.
Stoudemire has been leading the Suns in scoring this season according to NBA betting numbers while Nash has led the team in assists. The Suns seem to play much better when they get support for Stoudemire and many times that will come from Shaquille O’Neal. When Shaq has a big game the Suns usually win and cover the NBA betting pointspread.
