The Suns start a decisive stretch of eight games with a fairly easy one in Sacramento.

The Phoenix Suns are about to start what could very well be the decisive stretch of their season. Sitting in 10th place but just a handful out of game out of the money, they face a stretch of eight games with only one at home. And that home game comes Saturday against the Lakers after playing Friday night in Denver.

It's a tough, tough run of games with contests against the Nuggets, Jazz and Rockets presenting big opportunities to make or lose ground in the race. If Grant Hill is able to return from minor knee surgery this season, it will certainly be after these next two weeks.

Fortunately, the stretch starts with what should be a winnable game on Tuesday in Sacramento. The Suns have beat the Kings both times they've played this season and eight of their last 11 meetings.

The Kings are coming off a win over the beat up Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday.
