NBA schedule 2012: Thunder, Sixers on tap for Suns

Things won't be getting any easier for a Suns team that is currently sitting at dead last in the Pacific Division.

The Phoenix Suns will have two chances to snap their five-game losing streak in the early going this week with a visit to Oklahoma City and a matchup against Philadelphia.

But on Monday, the Suns will be looking to end an even scarier skid against the Thunder. Phoenix has already lost eight road games in a row this year and if it makes it to nine, it will be its longest single season streak since 1988.

The Thunder are currently an NBA best 15-2 at home this season. Making matters worse is the fact that the Suns are 2-7 against the Oklahoma City dating back to the 2009-2010 season.

The Suns will return home two days later to host a 76ers team that they lost to, 104-101, back in November. Jrue Holiday dropped a career-high 33 points in that one, so they'll have to figure out a way to contain the white-hot point guard this go-around.
