14-22. Previous: 20th. Phoenix Suns. 20. team. 66.

Phoenix Suns:

Offense: (110.3)  9th
Defense: (111.1 ) 19th
Net: (minus -0.7) 14th

Games Week 11 (2-2): Won vs Blazers:122-116, Knicks: 120-112,  Lost to Lakers 107-117, Grizzlies: 114-121
Games Week 12 (3 games): Tues vs. Kings | Fri vs Magic | Sun vs Hornets

Although the Suns got the initial victory over the Grizzlies early in the season the young Memphis crew has won the last two meetings and quite frankly looks like the more balanced squad.

The Suns have resigned to play Deandre Ayton and Aron Baynes together which resulted in all-around talent Dario Saric not only coming off the bench but losing minutes in the process.

To begin the week he started the games versus the Blazers and Lakers but coach Monty Williams switched things up to the Ayton-Baynes duo and brought him off the bench versus the Knicks and Grizzlies. By week’s end, he averaged 10.2 minutes due to his anemic 3:58 and 5:54 time on the court in the last two matches.
