Last season the Phoenix Suns were the second-worst team in the league. Many felt like this was the season Devin Booker would bid his farewell to the team as well. But in the offseason, everything changed for the franchise with a single decision.
The organization decided to trade for veteran guard Chris Paul, who was coming fresh off leading the OKC to a playoff berth. Although this move was going to improve their roster, no one expected them to improve this much.
Following their recent victory, the Suns now have the second-best record in the West going into the NBA All-Star break. After having underwhelming seasons for almost an entire decade, things are finally looking good for them.
According to the NBA History Twitter account, “With tonight’s win, the @Sunsenter the #NBAAllStar break with league’s 2nd-best record (24-11). The last time PHX entered the break with a top-2 record was in 2006-07 (39-13).”

With the first half of the season almost over, fans have all but one question on their mind: Can the team win an NBA Championship?
Can the Phoenix Suns end their championship drought?
Since first joining the NBA back in 1968, the Suns are still looking for their first-ever piece of hardware. The closest they came was under the leadership of NBA legend Steve Nash. Nash played for the Suns during the 2000s and played the best basketball of his career for the team.
But not even Steve Nash could carry the team to an NBA title. However, with Devin Booker and Chris Paul leading the team this season, the franchise’s hopes of winning the title are once again revived.
