They can streak all they want, but if they cant beat Dallas, its all for naught, and they have had some serious problems beating Dallas.
The team that Dallas beat twice this season is the same one playing now. Suns fans seem to think that they can rationalize those losses by throwing out that qualifier, when in actuality, Dallas is up a half-game in the standings and has a 2-0 lead on the tiebreaker, with a win already taken on Phoenix.' home court. Dallas is already 2/3 of the way to tiebreaker advantage.
The Suns have a nearly impossible job in beating the Mavs both in the regular season and in the playoffs.
I love that, nearly impossible job of beating the Mavs. I guess the NBA should shut down the rest of the season, have the top 8 teams battle it out in the East, and whoever wins faces the Mavs.
