The Phoenix Suns currently own a record of 15-32, thanks to three-straight losses. They will look to avoid another Monday against the Memphis Grizzlies.
The Phoenix Suns are in a bit of a slump.
That seems to be the trend of the season, considering their longest win-streak is only just two games. But a loss tomorrow night at home against the Memphis Grizzlies would match their season-worst stretch of four games.
It would be the third time this year in which the Suns have lost four consecutive contests. It’s been that kind of season for head coach Earl Watson and his young bunch.

In order to avoid a fourth-straight defeat, they’ll have to beat the Memphis Grizzles Monday night at home. It will be the first meeting of the season between the two teams.
The Grizzlies, under the direction of first-year head coach David Fizdale, seem poised for a seventh-straight season of playoff basketball. They currently have a record of 28-21, which is good for third place in the Southwest Division and seventh in the Western Conference.
They have a very talented lineup made up of All-Stars like Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. They have a great point guard in Mike Conley, and two established veterans like Tony Allen and Vince Carter.
Their lineup is composed of players from different backgrounds and plenty of playoff experience. The Suns, on the other hand, are a completely different squad. They’re young and inexperienced, and it does show during games.
According to basketball.realgm.com, the Grizzles roster has an average age of 27.5 while the Suns are 25.7.
In order to win tomorrow, Phoenix must control Memphis’ three-headed monster of Gasol, Randolph, and Conley. All three are the top three leading scorers for the Grizzlies.
For the Suns, they’ll need another performance from their Killer B’s like they’ve gotten all year. Eric Bledsoe and Devin Booker, the team’s leading scorers, are becoming one of the most underrated backcourts in all of basketball.
The Grizzlies are going for their third win in their last four tries, while the Suns aim to avoid a fourth-straight loss.
