(AP) - Having the best road record in the NBA helped the Chicago Bulls finish atop the Eastern Conference last season.

How they'll do away from home this season minus Derrick Rose remains to be seen.

The Bulls will double the number of road games they've played with a matchup against the improving Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night to open a five-game trip.

Chicago (4-3) did dominate its lone road game, but that 115-86 victory was against lowly Cleveland and came back on Nov. 2. The Bulls have since alternated wins and losses.

The Suns nabbed their third-straight home victory Monday, capturing a 110-100 home victory over the Nuggets. Phoenix rallied from 10 points down to snap a six-game losing streak to Denver. Check out some notable tidbits uncovered in the locker room before and after the game.

Ongoing Block Party
Suns center Marcin Gortat has three games of five or more blocks this season. The last time the Suns had a player with three such games in an entire season was 2007-08.
