Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NBA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Phoenix Suns fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, a full 100 percent of Phoenix Suns fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s up from 95 percent last week and 91 percent the week before.

The NBA season is still relatively young, but the playoff picture is starting to form. As always, it appears there will be a differently looking field this year than last.

When fans around the country were asked which Western Conference team that missed the playoffs last year is most likely to reach the postseason in 2021, there was a clear answer. 60 percent of fans picked the Suns, followed by 23 percent that picked the Golden State Warriors and five percent each for the Sacramento Kings and San Antonio Spurs.

On the other side of things, fans are similarly confident in the 2020 playoff team that will fall short this season. 65 percent of fans think the Oklahoma City Thunder will miss the 2021 postseason, followed by 22 percent that picked the Houston Rockets and 13 percent for the Dallas Mavericks.

In the Eastern Conference, fans predict that the Atlanta Hawks are the most likely choice to make the playoffs after missing last years. Fans believe the Hawks have the best chance of replacing the Orlando Magic.
