The Phoenix Suns will not be predicted to win an NBA championship in the upcoming season–what a bold prediction. Now that that is over and now that the 2013-14 NBA schedules have been released, let’s take a closer look at the Suns’ schedule. In particular, how their stretch towards the end of the season will look.
Phoenix will play 14 of its last 21 games on the road. I don’t really care who a team is playing, the home team always has that advantage going for them.
Unless if the Suns can somehow get better, it will not have to worry about finishing strong down the stretch. However, some good incoming rookies will have a lot of hype going for them, such as Archie Goodwin and Alex Len.
Making the postseason is never easy for any team in the pros, but the Suns will really have it tough with so many road games at the end of the season.
The Suns finished last year with a 25-57 record. That clearly is not going to get the job done, but if the rookies can have an instant impact and other players have big seasons, Phoenix could certainly improve that record.
