The Phoenix Suns are 3-3 after six games this season, tied for second place in the Pacific division with the Golden State Warriors and one game behind the Los Angeles Clippers.

Phoenix is currently riding a two-game winning streak after beating the Charlotte Bobcats handily and coming back from a 26-point deficit at home to knock off the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday.

Meanwhile, the 5-1 San Antonio Spurs have control of the top spot in the Western Conference and are the only five-win team in the West. After their fast and exciting 2-0 start to the season, the Houston Rockets have faltered and dropped three consecutive games.

Elsewhere in the NBA, it has been the New York Knicks surprising in the Eastern Conference. New York is the only remaining undefeated team in the NBA with a 4-0 record, which has them atop the Eastern Conference and ahead of the defending champion Miami Heat.

There are only two winless teams left in the league - the Detroit Pistons and Washington Wizards. The Pistons are 0-6 on the season, while the Wizards are 0-4.
