Tuesday. March 3 Toronto Raptors

After a couple days off, the Suns will look fresh and healthy. Booker will have a big game and the Suns will win a close game. (25-37)

Friday. March 6 Portland Trail Blazers

The Blazers will be trying to shop Hassan Whiteside to get some pieces back to make noise in the West. They will be competing every night and have a dark horse MVP candidate in Damian Lillard, and he will be every bit as good in this game as he leads the Blazers to a win. (25-38)

Sunday. March 8 Milwaukee Bucks

The Greek Freak comes to the Valley, along with former Sun, Eric Bledsoe. The Bucks will be the number one seed in the East again, aiming at a title run. The Suns will be pushed aside as Giannis dominated and gets a win. (25-39)

Tuesday. March 10 at Portland Trail Blazers

Seeing Lillard twice in three games is tough. Slowing down a player like him is already a challenge, oh, and by the way, CJ can go get 30-40 on any given night too. The second half of the season continues to be a tough one for the Suns, as they fall to the Blazers again. (25-40)

Saturday. March 14 at Dallas Mavericks

Dallas is one of the few teams that will be fighting for the last two playoff spots. A home game, where every win is so valuable for the Mavericks. At this point Kristaps Porzingis will have reminded the league why they called him “The Unicorn” and he will be hard for the Suns to slow down as the Mavs continue their playoff pursuit with a win over the Suns. (25-41)

Wednesday. March 18 Minnesota Timberwolves

More from Valley of the Suns

After going 1-10 in the past 11, the Suns will really need this win. The Ayton vs. Towns matchup will be very compelling, I am not a fan of what the Wolves have as a team and the Suns will win in overtime. (26-41)

Friday. March 20 at L.A. Clippers

It is really hard for me to say that the Suns will beat either LA team this year. I do not see that changing here. (26-42)

Saturday. March 21 Dallas Mavericks

A back-to-back against the Mavericks, the second time in the past three games, more of the same, too much Kristaps. (26-43)

Monday. March 23 at Indiana Pacers

This game is where TJ Warren will be trying to prove that the Suns should have kept him. It will not happen, as Booker and the boys take this game in Indiana as somewhat of a surprise. (27-43)

Wednesday. March 25 at Washington Wizards

John Wall will, or at least should, be back. Will Bradley Beal still be on the team? He will be in my eyes. With those two back and healthy they are a semi-watchable basketball team that will beat the Suns in a game where you ask how the Suns lost this game. (27-44)

Friday. March 27 at Philadelphia 76ers

The 76ers are just better than the Suns, and it will show. (27-45)

Saturday. March 28 at Miami Heat

The Suns travel down to South Beach and leave realizing how good Devin Booker is while also being reminded of Jimmy Butler’s level of play. Butler will carry the Heat to a much needed win as they will be fighting for a playoff spot. (27-46)

Monday. March 30 at Cleveland Cavaliers

At this point in the season, I think Kevin Love will not be a Cavalier. The project of Darius Garland and Colin Sexton will have backfired, and the Cavs will be right back where they were last year. I would hope the Suns can win this game in Cleveland. (28-46)
