The Phoenix Suns have dropped their first two road games of this current four-game trip while trying to stay in playoff contention.

The Suns will try to get their first win on this four-game trip against Eastern Conference opponents when they visit the Indiana Pacers on Friday night.

Phoenix climbed back into the postseason race by winning 11 of 14, but it opened this trek with losses on back-to-back nights against Miami and Orlando.

By taking advantage of a portion of their schedule loaded with home games, the Phoenix Suns have crept into the Western Conference playoff picture.

Their next 3 1/2 weeks are filled with road contests, and that stretch begins Tuesday night in one of the NBA's toughest arenas.

The Suns try to extend their longest winning streak of the season to five games when they meet a Miami Heat team seeking its 14th straight home victory.
