Watch Suns vs. Nuggets: TV channel, live stream info, start time

Through 3 Quarters

The Phoenix Suns were the heavy favorites here for a reason. After three quarters it’s looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Denver Nuggets as Phoenix lead 103-78.

The Suns have been relying on center Deandre Ayton, who has 21 points along with six rebounds and two blocks, and shooting guard Devin Booker, who has 17 points and seven assists in addition to four boards. Those points put Ayton near his season high of 22.

Power forward JaMychal Green has led the way so far for Denver, as he has 14 points and four assists along with seven rebounds.

If the matchup were over at this point, it would be the Nuggets’ worst margin of defeat yet this year.

What to Know

The Denver Nuggets have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the Phoenix Suns at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday at Footprint Center. Phoenix should still be feeling good after a victory, while the Nuggets will be looking to right the ship.

Denver was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Friday as they fell 114-108 to the Chicago Bulls. Power forward Aaron Gordon put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 28 points along with nine boards. Gordon’s performance made up for a slower game against the Philadelphia 76ers this past Thursday. Gordon’s points were the most he has had all season.

Meanwhile, Phoenix bagged a 112-104 win over the Dallas Mavericks this past Friday. Phoenix can attribute much of their success to small forward Mikal Bridges, who had 19 points, and point guard Chris Paul, who posted a double-double on 18 points and 14 assists in addition to five rebounds.

Denver is expected to lose this next one by 7.5. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the squad has let down bettors in their past three games.

The Nuggets are now 9-7 while the Suns sit at 12-3. Phoenix is 10-1 after wins this year, and Denver is 2-4 after losses.
