Anyone nervous about December?


I'm just as excited as anyone else about the great start of the season with many tough victories on the road, several come from behind, gritty wins, and a surprisingly slower but more efficient Suns team. And while the seven cities in ten days start was tough, December looks brutal.

We get Cleveland and the Lake-Show twice, Dallas, Orlando, Denver, San Antonio, Portland and Boston to cap off the month. We play a total of 16 games in December, and the combined winning percentage of the teams we face is 56%. 10 of those games are against the league's elite - those 10 games represent teams that are a combined 72 wins and 32 losses. That includes the Spurs, who bring the whole average down with their current 5 and 6 record while they battle injuries.

There is one particular stretch where we play:

Cleveland - (Sacramento) - Lakers - Dallas - Orlando - Denver - Spurs - Portland.

That stretch ends Dec. 17th, and I think at that point we'll have a good idea of what these Suns are really capable of. That's also the 26th game of the season, so when Gentry talks about not making any judgments on the team until 25 games in, I wonder if he was specifically looking at this stretch of games.
