Notable takeaways:

  • Sun’s fans may be disappointed with two losses at the start of the month in Chicago and Dallas. Realistically, Phoenix should be hoping to win at least one of these games, although both will likely appear on a knife’s edge.
  • The same can be said for back-to-back losses against the Lakers and Kings. However, by this point of the season, the Los Angeles roster should be significantly different and a lot better overall.
  • Facing the Warriors and Bucks may be the toughest two-day schedule for any team across the season, even if the second night is in Phoenix.
  • The Kings and 76ers back-to-back also presents as a challenge – a loss in Sacramento may appear more likely given the chance of Phoenix resting some key players.

A 9-5 record would again be a strong month for the Suns, even if there’s optimism for a better result. Should this record materialise, then the overall record would move to 52-24 with six games remaining in the regular season.
