Phoenix started the New Year with a win and has only won one game since. The Suns smacked the Thunder at home close to two weeks ago now. They have lost three in a row since then.
Devin Booker’s 43 kept them close at Portland in the last game. Troy Daniels scored 18 off the bench. He’s had some big scoring nights on the down-low this season. His 41.4 three-point percentage is just about identical with his percentage from two.
The Suns are in third-place in their division, but that’s only because the Pacific stinks. They are ahead of the Lakers and Kings, with the Clippers and Warriors ahead of them.
Phoenix will be in an interesting position in this summer’s draft. They really need a serviceable big man, yet they have invested a lot of high picks in bigs who are still young and developing.
I’m not sure Chriss, Len or Bender will ever pan out, though.
Denver has lost five out of its last seven. The Nuggets ran into a hot Clippers team on Wednesday and couldn’t sneak away with a win on the road.
Now, Denver is on the outside, looking in on the Western Conference playoffs.
So while Phoenix is in third in its division, Denver is in fourth. It doesn’t really matter. What matters is the record and the Nuggets are a loss behind Portland for eighth-place in the West as of now.
They’re actually only a loss behind the Pelicans and Clippers, too. And two behind the Thunder. Those three teams are five, six and seven in the conference.
There’s a big drop-off after that, so only one of those teams should be left out of the playoffs. As of now, however, it’s Denver.
Jamal Murray missed the first game of his career on Wednesday with a concussion and he has already been ruled out for this game. Will Barton started for him at point guard.
