Have a winning record

Until the All-Star break starts, the Suns have five games left. Their last five-game stretch won't be easy, as they'll face a couple well-versed teams. The ideal record that fans would want the team to end the first half of the season with would be 5-0. It's doable, as Phoenix won seven straight games during the middle of January up until the end of the month.

Starting Feb. 6, the Suns will play against the Milwaukee Bucks. They have the upper hand as the Bucks are still adjusting to the coaching style of recently hired head coach Doc Rivers. Following that would be their game against the Utah Jazz. The Jazz are not in the playoff picture. Additionally, Phoenix beat them in their previous three matches.

Their third game is against the Golden State Warriors. Like Utah, the Warriors have lost their last three meetings against the Suns. But one thing to note about their past games is that Golden State didn't have Draymond Green in their first two matchups. 

The Sacramento Kings will be the fourth game in their schedule. In their last three meetings, the Kings won the first two games. All-Star center Domantas Sabonis will be a player the Suns should observe, as he's a lethal double-double machine.

The last team they'll face before the All-Star break would be the Detroit Pistons. While they are the worst team in the league, they can still surprise the masses. After all, they defeated Oklahoma City Thunder without their star player, Cade Cunningham.

The Suns can finish their remaining five games of the first half with a 4-1 record. They have to take care of the ball and be aggressive on offense.
