The Phoenix Suns take on the Wizards tonight in Washington. The third of a six game road trip, it which the Suns are 1-1 so far. However on the season, road games have given the Suns trouble. Holding a record of 6-10 on the road, with a 20-15 overall record on the season.
20-15 record with all of the drama and injuries this Phoenix Suns team has faced is impressive. Yet, with a deep dive into the losses, the road struggles pop off the page.
Any team that has a home and road split like this has a problem. 14-5 at home vs 6-10 on the road, something is going on with this teams mentality when they are forced to travel.

In total, 8 out of their next 10 games will be on the road. Facing playoff caliber teams left and right. The next three weeks will be a true test of this Suns make up.
How they fair after this stretch will paint the picture on this team, and the gull they possess. The first true test for the Suns, who some were calling a championship contender coming into the season.
Others are waiting to see. Phoenix takes on the Wizards today in Washington at 5 pm local time here in Phoenix. Where Phoenix is currently a 2.5 point favorite, while the total stands at 222.5.
