We'll start with NBC Sports. Writer Kurt Helin has the Phoenix Suns at 15, moving up one spot from last week.
Here is what Helin had to say:
They had a softer schedule last week and they could not bank enough wins, now things get tougher with the Spurs, Warriors and Raptors on the docket this week.
Next up, we take a look at CBS Sports version of the rankings. Writer Matt Moore has the Suns at 9.
Here is what Moore had to say:
The Bulls loss was disappointing, and they dug a hole vs. the Nuggets before going off in the second half. However, Brandon Knight and Eric Bledsoe are two guys who can take over a game at any point. One thing to note: They look a lot better with the small-ball lineups with multiple shooters, kind of like Indiana.
Lastly, we'll take a look at ESPN. Writer Marc Stein has the Suns at 19.
Here is what Stein had to say:
Just when we were poised to start making Bled-Show part of the daily lexicon, Brandon Knight turned in a couple of dream box scores for fantasy owners in wins over the Lakers and Nuggets to make sure we all know it's a two-headed backcourt in the desert that, at least numbers-wise, is hanging with Curry/Thompson and Lillard/McCollum.
