The Phoenix Suns will take two wins, but they're looking for much more as they try to turn a disappointing season around.
The two wins came against formidable opponents in the Memphis Grizzlies and Utah Jazz, and gave the team the knowledge that they can compete with anyone. With victories against stronger teams, the Suns know they should be able to take care of business against lesser squads.
"Those games, that if we're going to get back in this thing, we're just going to have to try to find a way to win them," head coach Alvin Gentry said. "It all starts with Sacramento Monday, and that's what we have to place all our emphasis on right now."
The Sacramento Kings will come into Phoenix with a 7-16 record and a dismal mark of 1-9 on the road, the worst such record in the Western Conference.
"I think we all understand that two wins is minuscule in the big picture," said Suns forward Michael Beasley. "We have a goal to get to and two wins is not going to help us get there. We're definitely happy to get that bad streak over, but we all understand we don't want to get there again."
