The Phoenix Suns finally have their top three players healthy for the first time this season, so these should be the three most pressing goals for the trio.

1. Climb to fourth in the West

If the Suns can win some games and improve their offensive output dramatically in the process, then there is no doubt their record is going to improve. Which is why aiming for at least the fourth spot over the next 10 or so games should be the goal for any team featuring Durant, Booker and Beal.

Right now the Mavericks (15-9) occupy that spot, but they're without Kyrie Irving at the moment and will play the Suns on Christmas Day. Below them in fifth are the Kings at 14-9, another opponent the Suns will see this month. By the end of January, the Suns will have played both of these teams again, as well as the Los Angeles Lakers, who sit in sixth (15-10).

So it will be about coming out on the right side of some of these matchups and in doing so try and get home court advantage for at least the first round of the playoffs. Beal is coming along slowly, but you can bet he'll end up with much more than the 16.4 points per game he is currently averaging in his five games played.

Ending on a high, and the Suns do rank an impressive fourth in 3-pointers made, at 38.2 percent per game. If this keeps up - and both Allen and Gordon will be back from injury soon - then that number can help both the offensive rating, as well as the wins the team can begin to pile up. What will help massively, is having at least two All-Stars on the court to stretch opponents at all time.
