Coach Monty Williams talks with Deandre Ayton, Devin Booker, Cameron Payne and Jae Crowder during Round 2, Game 1 of the 2021 NBA Playoffs on June 7, 2021 at Phoenix Suns Arena.

Last season’s Phoenix Suns team made the NBA Finals for only the third time in the organization’s history, eventually losing to the Milwaukee Bucks.

The team hasn’t let that postseason disappointment affect this year’s ambitions, as the Suns are off to a 17-3 start — including 16 wins in a row.

On Nov. 30, the Suns face the only NBA team with a better record this season: the Golden State Warriors.

To put the fast start into context, The Show spoke with Dave King, managing editor of Bright Side of the Sun.
