Phoenix Facts:

The Suns have not trailed by more than eight points over their past four games, going 3-1.

Mike James’ carrer-high 24 points are the most by a Suns player in one of his first 10 career games since Michael Finley scored 24 vs. Atlanta on Nov. 22, 1995 in his 10th career game

Tuesday night, the Suns grabbed 66 total rebounds (most by team since 1997) and 56 defensive rebounds (most since defensive rebounds started being recorded in 1973-74)

The Suns are averaging 53 rebounds over their last four games, most in the league in games since October 23.

Things to Watch for:
