    Suns and Thunder are tied for the toughest schedule per Las Vegas odds.

    AZCentral's Duane Rankin wrote up a good piece breaking down the Suns schedule, highlighting matchups against former players like TJ, JJ, Holmes, and even bench guys like Troy Daniels and Bender. He also has good write ups on the toughest stretches, longest home stand, longest road trip, and more. Worth checking out.

    I did notice one error he made when discussing our toughest stretch. He said that only the Kings missed the playoffs last year, of the teams we play in that stretch, but the Lakers are also included in that stretch but since they have Lebron and Anthony Davis, I can understand why they're included as a tough matchup and forgetting they missed the postseason last year is an easy mistake to make.

    Two reasons for this.

    1. The Suns are in the Western Conference.
    2. The Suns don't get to play the Suns.

    Yeah. I would guess that for a while now the projected best East team has had the "easiest" schedule before the season and the bottom teams in the West have had the hardest.

    I found this interesting. I don't know if anyone has seen any data from previous seasons as to where the Suns ranked but they're number 2 in miles traveled this next season. I think losing a home game to Mexico City plays some part in that but I don't see that moving them more than a spot or two.

    Makes sense. It's geography, the less teams there are right next to you, the more you'll travel.

    What confuses me is Boston's place. They must have gotten screwed with multiple short West Coast trips.

    I'm not sure if this has been reported but Al McCoy returns for 48th season.

    Great job Al.

    Suns only have one nationally televised game on TNT and it's against Zion and the Pelicans.
