Will Suns Get Up For Another Western Game?
Suns Head Coach Jeff Hornacek is an advocate of mid-season effort, which he feels often gets missed between the early season excitement of November and late playoff pushes of March and April.
Phoenix has done well in that regard, and in a West-heavy stretch of games to boot. They have faced just one Eastern Conference opponent since Dec. 6, and that was just their sixth out-of-conference game this season out of 29 games.
If the Suns muster enough night-to-night energy for yet another important game, particularly against a nearby contender, they could enter 2014 with even more confidence and higher opinions from around the league.
