Phoenix Suns schedule: February 1 at the Dallas Mavericks
Doncic is tired of going for 40 and getting fouled all night, Mikal’s wingspan will be too much for him, and the Suns complete a great team win splitting this two games stint. (15-8)
Phoenix Suns schedule: February 3 at the New Orleans Pelicans
Booker will really want to show out for this one on ESPN, Zion and Ingram got the better of the Suns in the first one, but the loss of Jrue Holiday is going to prove to be detrimental in this one and the Suns will cruise with Mike Breen saying, “Booker for three. Bang” all night long. (16-8)
Phoenix Suns schedule: February 5 home against the Detroit Pistons
The Suns start a seven-game homestand against all Eastern Conference opponents starting with the dysfunctional Pistons. How about some Jalen Smith? Smith will play well in a rout. (17-8)
Phoenix Suns schedule: February 7 home against the Boston Celtics
The Celtics are a very interesting team this year, is Jayson Tatum for sure the guy? I would say so.
The Suns are very similar to the Celtics, good point guard play, young scoring superstar, a defensive presence who can also shoot the three. These are the games that need to be won in assuring the league the Suns are for real. This one will come down to the last shot. “Booker for the win…it’s good, Suns win!” (18-8)
Phoenix Suns schedule: February 8 home against the Cleveland Cavaliers
The Cavs would need LeBron to come back and suit up for them to win this one. These are the games that the Suns need to get our early and crush any run the Cavs give. The Suns will move to 19-8 and could be sitting in the top-4 of the “almighty” West. (19-8)
Phoenix Suns schedule: February 10 home against the Milwaukee Bucks
Another ESPN game. The Bucks seem all in right now and are making a push to really keep Giannis Antetokounmpo happy and in Milwaukee. They will be the number 1 seed in the East and will beat the Suns here, but it will be close and who knows, but the Suns will have no answer for Antetokounmpo. (19-9)
Phoenix Suns schedule: February 13 home against the Philadelphia 76ers
Booker loves playing against the Sixers. It will be very interesting to see how Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid play under a new coach, I think it will be more of the same. Ayton will have a breakthrough game as he and Embiid go back and forth, but it will come down to Booker and Paul closing it out. This game will be chippy, perfect for Jevon Carter, as he plays great pushing the Suns to a statement win. (20-9)
Phoenix Suns schedule: February 14 home against the Orlando Magic
The Suns, in recent history, have had their issues with the Magic, and I have no idea why. This will be somewhat of a trap game right after an emotional win against the 76ers and right before a huge game against the Brooklyn Nets. The Suns of old would let this game slip, but “The Fellas” will not let that happen. (21-9)
Phoenix Suns schedule: February 16 home against the Brooklyn Nets
The question of the NBA season is what will the Nets look like? Kevin Durant scares me, Kyrie Irving, when he plays, is a top-10 player, and possibly James Harden! Caris LeVert cost the Suns a playoff spot in the bubble, there will be some fuel for the Suns, but Durant and the Nets will be too much. (21-10)
Phoenix Suns schedule: February 19 at the New Orleans Pelicans
This will be the third matchup against these Pelicans which is great for the league, broadcasting such great young talent and giving us what we as fans will be seeing for a long time to come. The Zion Williamson matchup will be a big X-factor here. The Suns will struggle to stop him in this game as the Pelicans take the best out of 3 series. (21-11)
Phoenix Suns schedule: February 20 at the Memphis Grizzlies
The Grizzlies just do not match up well with this Suns team, it is as simple as that. Suns win. (22-11)
Phoenix Suns schedule: February 22 home against the Portland Trail Blazers
No one in this league feels like he has more to prove that Damian Lillard, him and Chris Paul will go at it all night long, but advantage Lillard. Booker will do his best to keep us in it but it could be a game he fades into the background. The Blazers win and it could get ugly, as the Suns do not fare very well with the Blazers. (22-12)
Phoenix Suns schedule: February 24 home against the Charlotte Hornets
The Hornets are a team I subtly am excited to watch this year. The addition of Gordon Hayward and LaMelo Ball is adding to a solid group of guards already in Devonte’ Graham and Terry Rozier. The Suns frontcourt should dominate, and we are due for a spectacular performance from Dario Saric. Suns win, but do not be surprised if the Hornets make some noise. (23-12)
Phoenix Suns schedule: February 26 at the Chicago Bulls
The Bulls are similar to the Pistons, in that it feels and looks like a dumpster fire. The Bulls should have no answer for Booker, and the savvy veterans on this team will keep the young guys focused on their way to a win. (24-12)
Phoenix Suns schedule: March 2 at the Los Angeles Lakers.
Suns. Lakers. TNT primetime. This will be the first meeting between the two teams and it could turn out to be the best game so far. LeBron and the Lakers are favorites to win the title and rightly so, but Booker and the Suns are very hungry to see what it feels like near the top.
James and Davis will be tough to handle for the Suns and the rest of the league in general. The Suns will get one from the Lakers at some point this year and LeBron will mention something about “this young team and Booker is a young star,” but it will not be on March 2. (24-13)
This is all the NBA has given us as of now. No one really knows how this season is going to work, but I trust in Adam Silver and the league to give us entertaining and great basketball. The Suns have lofty expectations for the first time in a while, and it will eventually come down to the way these players can gel as a team because if the chemistry is there and everyone is bought in, this team can succeed and play with the best in the league. 37 games down right now, 37 more to come.
