The Suns (14-9) look to extend their season-long five-game winning streak tonight against the Spurs (19-5), who are coming off a loss on Monday to the Clippers.
It will be up to Phoenix to hand San Antonio its first two-game losing streak of the season. The Suns are eager for another chance against their conference rivals after losing by just three in their previous meeting earlier this season. Point guard Eric Bledsoe (19.5 ppg, 6.4 apg) did not play that game due to injury.
“The guys have talked about it, thinking we had a chance in that game,” said Suns Head Coach Jeff Hornacek. “I think they’re ready to go.”
With that in mind, here are five things to watch for in tonight’s game.
