Suns voted best in the league
The Phoenix are confirming their status as the best team in the NBA this season, extending their best season start in franchise history.
The Suns’ 11 wins is their second winning streak with at least that many wins this season, as they previously had 18 consecutive wins between October and December 2021.
Nets in free fall without Duran
At the opposite extreme are the Nets, who have lost five games in a row despite James Harden returned tonight with 22 points and 10 assists, and Kyrie Irving scored 26 points.
Blake Griffin scored 17 points on 6-of-10 shots off the bench, but that’s not enough for the Nets and they clearly still need the missing piece of theirs big three, Kevin Duran.
Suns next game will be away Atlanta Hawks this Thursday while Brooklyn is playing this Wednesday at Sacramento Kings.
