Let’s rewind the clock and go back in time to June 20, 2019. You get an alert on your phone that the Phoenix Suns have traded T.J. Warren and the 32nd pick to the Indiana Pacers. That’s it.
The Suns won three consecutive games just one time in the first 65 games this season, and that was in the second week of the season. They did it only four times in the previous four seasons. A win streak in Orlando is more significant because of the level of competition there.
The race for the final playoff spot in the West is on, with the Suns, Blazers, and Spurs surging, while the Grizzlies might be in trouble.
