Phoenix Suns schedule: January 1 at the Denver Nuggets

A back-to-back against a very good Nuggets team. The Suns will be tired after a win in Utah and Jokic will own Ayton and post a triple-double in a Suns loss, and not to mention Jamal Murray will probably continue to own the Suns. Both of those factors will not lead to a Suns win. (4-2)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 3 home against the Los Angeles Clippers

A title contender comes to the Valley, possibly thinking about what happened the last time these two teams squared up, every Suns fan can remember that game.

Nonetheless, the Clippers have a lot to prove this year and it has been seen when Kawhi sets out on a mission, he is pretty darn good at getting it done. The Clippers top the Suns in the first meeting. (4-3)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 6 home against the Toronto Raptors

People continue to love this Raptors team, and I am not as sold as everyone else. Losing Marc Gasol will hurt more than they think. This will be another game where Booker will be the best player on the floor and be very very hard to stop. Booker will close this one as he once again starts to get the rest of the league’s attention. (5-3)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 8 at the Detroit Pistons

The Pistons are an organization with really no sense of direction.

The Suns should stomp the Pistons, and walking away from this one Mikal Bridges will once again remind us why we love him so much. Suns win this one. (6-3)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 9 at the Indiana Pacers

The Pacers will have Victor Oliadipo back and who knows if the bubble T.J. Warren is a real thing or not. The Suns fall to the Pacers here as they look to get healthy. (6-4)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 11 at the Washington Wizards

With the addition of Russell Westbrook, the Wizards have a very good backcourt, and it seems like we struggle with the Wizards every year, however, this is not like any other year. The leadership of Chris Paul will propel the Suns in a game they need to win. (7-4)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 13 home against the Atlanta Hawks

The Suns come home for their next 7 out of 9 against the very talented and young Atlanta Hawks.

The Hawks remind me of what the Suns have been the past two or three years. Booker and Trae Young will both have big nights, but the Suns’ bench squad will be the difference in this one, Cameron Payne might go crazy. (8-4)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 15 home against the Golden State Warriors

The Warriors come to town, and hometown kid Nico Mannion will be getting more and more minutes for this Warriors team. Rookie James Wiseman will be the rookie of the year, but he will struggle with Ayton. Steph will be Steph but I have not mentioned Suns sharpshooter Cameron Johnson, he will have a great night shooting the ball and the Suns will pull away late. (9-4)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 16 home against the Indiana Pacers

The Pacers keep getting the Suns in tough spots, the second night of a back-to-back. The Suns do not really match up well with the Pacers and the Pacers will sweep the Suns this year. (9-5)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 18 at the Memphis Grizzlies

The Suns start a three-game span of nationally televised games, and it starts on Martin Luther King Jr. Day against the young budding star Ja Morant. The Suns will be too much for the Grizzlies, and Jae Crowder returns to a team he once played for. Charles Barkley will hop back on the Suns bandwagon and the Suns cruise in this one. (10-5)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 20 at the Houston Rockets

James Harden and John Wall versus Devin Booker and former teammate Chris Paul on ESPN, get your popcorn ready! In reality, this game could be very hard to watch, no one has any idea how the Rockets are going to look.

The uncertainty leads me to take the better coach, give me Monty Williams as he continues his quest for coach of the year. (11-5)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 22 home against the Denver Nuggets

I do not know why the NBA is doing this, having two teams play each other in back-to-back nights, but the Suns have got to beat the Nuggets in one of them, right?

The Suns will lose this one but turn it around the next game, Michael Porter Jr. goes a little wild in this one. (11-6)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 23 home against the Denver Nuggets

Hell, Booker has 50. Suns win. (12-6)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 27 home against the Oklahoma City Thunder

Chris Paul will play against his former team, the Thunder. The Thunder are planning for the 2025-2026 season at this point, the Suns should roll them but just like any league, wins can be hard to come by, so Monty has got to demand focus and consistency especially in games like these. (13-6)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 28 home against the Golden State Warriors

Another Kelly Oubre Jr. homecoming game, Oubre has expressed his “hate” recently towards the Suns. I think he poked a bear with some of his comments, Booker is going to go at him and make it evident that you can not slander his team. Booker gets 40 plus and really starts to turn more heads. (14-6)

Phoenix Suns schedule: January 30 at the Dallas Mavericks

Another series against the same team. This one is simple, Doncic does what he does, he will get a couple of “star” calls that infuriate the Suns fanbase and the Mavs will squeak this one out. (14-7)
