Locked On Suns Monday: Where the Suns sit in the West standings plus we preview the Celtics-Kings back-to-back

Will the Suns stay in the playoff race? Boston is the next big test in a long season.

Surprise! The Phoenix Suns are playing like a legit playoff contender through their first 11 games of the 2019-20 season. Will it sustain? We take a look at the Western Conference standings to see if teams are trending upward or downward.

Outside of the true title contenders — Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, Denver Nuggets, Utah Jazz, and Houston Rockets — Phoenix falls into a cluster alongside Dallas and Minnesota as young teams rising quicker than expected.

After diving even deeper into the early playoff picture, we close out by discussing an important back-to-back upcoming for the Suns against Boston and Sacramento.
