By Francisco Romero

After beating the Los Angeles Lakers 120-101, the Phoenix Suns won their third game in a row.

Taking advantage of plying at home (Talking Stick Resort Arena), Jeff Hornacek’s pupils have become one of the hottest NBA’s team as of late.

The three-game winning streak improves the Suns’ record to 6-4 and tied for second place in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference with the Los Angeles Clippers; the Golden State Warriors are in first place with a record of 12-0.

Phoenix will have a chance to improve its winning streak to four games tonight while hosting the Chicago Bulls.

During the winning streak Brandon Knight has been playing as an all-star.

Knight recorded his first triple double of his career Monday night against the Lakers; Knight finished the game with 30 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds.

“That’s called an all-around game,” Suns’ head coach Hornacek said after the game. “When you’re scoring and you’re passing like he was passing the ball, when you have that type of game, everything looks easy. The basket looked big. The game was really slow for him. He’s a great player and he had a great game.”

Eric Bledsoe has also been on fire for the Suns, he has averaged 25.7 points in the team’s latest three victories.

Bledsoe Set a new career-long with his fifth straight game of 20+ points with 21 points against the Lakers on Monday.

The Suns and Bulls split their two meetings in 2014-15 with the home team winning each. Brandon Knight made his Suns debut at Chicago on February 21.

The Suns with a record of 6-4 for the season, is their best 10-game start since also starting 6-4 in 2010-11.

The Suns rank 3rd in the NBA with 105.8 points per game, 4th with a three-point percentage of 37.7 percent, t-3rd with 9.7 three-point makes per game, 6th with 16.1 fast break points per game, 7th with 9.10 steals per game and 3rd with a pace of 103.1 possessions per 48 minutes.

The Bulls may be playing without Derrick Rose; he is out with an ankle injury.

Tonight’s game against the Bulls is scheduled to start at 8:30 PM.
