▪ The Suns are playing the fifth of a six-game road swing. They’ve lost their first four by an average of 17.5 points, including a 130-120 defeat at Boston on Friday. Overall, Phoenix has lost seven in a row and nine of 10.
▪ Kentucky will be well represented in this game – Tyler Ulis, Devin Booker, Brandon Knight and Eric Bledsoe for Phoenix; Michael Kidd-Gilchrist for Charlotte.
