Suns Go For Franchise Record 18th Straight Win Thursday

12-point underdog Pistons look to ruin history on the road

This is one of the rarest of times when the Detroit Pistons are part of an important game in the NBA. The only reason, obviously, has to do with the fact the Phoenix Suns are looking to break a franchise record with their 18th-straight win when they host the Pistons tonight.

Detroit heads to Footprint Center with the insurmountable task of not only trying to end this win streak as 12-point underdogs, but try and win for just the fifth time all season.

Hard To Believe...

It's incredible to think that in 2018-19, the Suns won 19 games for an entire season. Now, after last year's NBA Final berth, they have a chance to break this team record that would've seemed a bit crazy to even talk about at the beginning of this season.

After starting off 1-3 this year, Phoenix hasn't lost since. From looking like a fluke with an easy path to the Finals last year, to now showing everyone that's clearly not the case, the key here is to obviously not overlook a 4-17 Pistons team en route to history.

No Booker, No Problem

Devin Booker (hamstring) won't be out there tonight, which means the Suns will rely even more on their defense, and likely an increased role for Chris Paul.

The Suns are now seventh in points allowed per game (104.6), sixth in opponent field-goal percentage (43.4%), and are second in defensive rating (103.5) while having just held the Warriors under 100 points for the first time all season.

Golden State also turned the ball over 23 times, while Mikal Bridges harassed Steph Curry all game long.

Let's also not forget the heart and soul of this team in Paul, who at 36 years old, is still averaging over 10 assists a game, while barely turning it over more than two times a game. He'll clearly look to get others involved first, but if something crazy happens, like the Pistons somehow come close to covering, he'll be the guy to take over late.

But let's not go crazy here. I like the Suns to cover -12, and extend their streak to 18 games, setting up a quick rematch Friday night against the Warriors.
