Is... is it possible the Phoenix Suns are playing juuuust a little bit better in 2017? They are 3-3 in the new year with a nice win against the San Antonio Spurs and a close game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Ping pong balls aside, it would be pretty great to see the team continue to improve over their remaining 40ish games.

- More NBA: Bringing the ping-pong balls back into focus, the Suns are tied for the 4th pick overall right now. It’s unlikely they slide catch the Brooklyn Nets/Boston Celtics, but I could see them finishing anywhere between 3rd and 10th. Is anywhere in the top 10 workable or do the Suns need to make some moves to insure a top 5 pick?
