-Suns VS Coyotes-

Which Arizona team are you most impressed with, Phoenix Suns or Arizona Coyotes? The Suns have started the season at 5-2 (1 GB of Los Angeles Lakers 6-1), and the Coyotes have started their season 9-4-2 with 20 points (Edmonton Oilers 10-5-2, 22 points, Vancouver Canucks 9-3-3, 21 points). Neither team have been predicted to do any thing at all this season. Both teams have been near the bottom if not at the bottom of their respective leagues for many years. The Phoenix Suns will host the Miami Heat (5-2) tonight at the Talking Stick Arena at 7:00 p.m. FOX Sports. While the Arizona Coyotes will play host to the Columbus Blue Jackets (5-7-3) at the Gila River Arena at 7:00, Fox Sports AZ Plus. With the early success of both teams give us here in Arizona on possibly a post-season to hope for.

Another week of games hasn’t done anything to dispel the notion that the Suns are legit. They beat two one-win teams – the Warriors and Grizzlies – last week, but road wins (which both were) are good wins and the Suns were a wide-open Kelly Oubre corner three from beating the Jazz on Monday. One of the two teams that rank in the top 10 in both offensive and defensive efficiency is the only team that ranked in the bottom three on both ends of the floor last season. The Suns leads the league in assist percentage, having assisted on 69% of their buckets and also jumped from 29th to 14th in turnover rate. Devin Booker’s assist rate is down from a career-high 20.2 per 100 possessions last season, but the percentage of his own buckets that have been assisted has jumped from 36% last season to 57% this season. He’s been assisted by eight different teammates, and he’s one of three Suns – Tyler Johnson and Aron Baynes (!) are the others – with an effective field goal percentage better than 70% on at least 15 catch-and-shoot jumpers. The Suns have two six-game homestands this season and the first begins Monday with a visit from the league’s only undefeated team.
