 PHOENIX (AP) - After victories over Portland and Oklahoma City, the Phoenix Suns have cemented their status as the NBA's most surprising team.
Now comes a three-games-in-four-days trip that could make or break the Suns' playoff chances.
Entering Tuesday's play, with five games to go, the Suns held the eighth and final playoff spot in the West, a game ahead of Memphis and a half-game behind No. 7 Dallas.
A team predicted to be among the worst in the league stands at 46-31, with first-year coach Jeff Hornacek overseeing a high-energy bunch led by the dynamic backcourt of Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. The mercurial but often spectacular Gerald Green is also in a career year for a player who had bounced around the league with little success.
