The Suns are currently on a season high four-game losing streak. They went just 1-5 on their six game road trip, including a 40-point loss to the Pistons. Goran Drajic leads the team in minutes played, points, steals and assists, and Marcin Gortat is the team's leading rebounder and shot blocker. Tonight is also "satisfaction guaranteed night" in Phoenix, as the Suns are having a promotion where if fans do not enjoy themselves, they will be given a refund for their ticket.
The Mavericks have lost four of their last five games, including a 22-point loss to the Clippers last night in Los Angeles. Vince Carter led the Mavericks with 16 points off the bench and Elton Brand grabbed nine rebounds in a losing effort. Dallas is still without star forward Dirk Nowitzki, who is rehabbing a knee injury and has not played in a game this season.
