Phoenix isn't a winning team.
We have a 2-3 record against winning teams this month.
The three were boston, miami and the clippers.
Miami and the clippers are top in their divisions and we avenged the celtics loss(phoenix too)
Losing to miami and the clippers is nothing to be ashamed of at all. And if those are the winning teams we've lost to then I'm not terribly concerned because we've also beaten OKC and New York so it can go both ways.
Fact is we've found ourselves.
We went 5-11 In January to 11-4 hopefully 12-4 in february. You don't do that without a turn around regardless of what teams you're facing.
Even when we lost in january against .500 teams let's look at who they were.
Miami twice, OKC and san Antonio(without Dwight or Pau), Memphis, the Clippers and Houston, Denver.
So the top 4 teams on BOTH sides and one on the cusp(Houston)
These aren't the guys we look at, at the time we were just looking to contend with them till we'd figured it out.
By the time we played Utah, we had.
We beat Utah and then OKC
Lost Dwight against the Suns and lost, then came back and won twice without him and then lost Pau at the end of the Brooklyn game, then played the celtics without him and got beat.
Then we trades wins and losses beating teams we are expected to beat but losing to the Clippers and Miami and finished the month strong, putting both Dallas and Portland who were fighting us for position behindus.
Then we took tired legs into denver and even in losing shot over 55 percent and over 100 points, none of this appeals to you?
We've found a working method and when remaining healthy are rough to beat.
But again I say we need to beat the wolves today.
