The Phoenix Suns fell just two games short of lifting the NBA championship in 2021. If not for a sudden and unexpected downfall in the performances of Devin Booker & De’Andre Ayton, they were in a better position than Milwaukee to win it all.

So now, with the 2021-22 approaching, they’re the title favorites if they can mimic the regular season success from last year. Fortunately, they still have Chris Paul on the squad to lead the unit as a veteran voice. Plus, they also have the additional duo of Landry Shamet and JaVale McGee to further add some depth to the roster.

What are the crucial fixtures for the Valley in 2021-22?

October 22 vs Lakers: This will be a more crucial tie for the Lakers than for the Sun’s on so many levels. The Lake Show suffered an embarrassing first round loss to the Suns in the last playoffs. This was the first time LeBron James faced humiliation in Round 1 of a postseason. So the new Lakers Nation will have something to prove here. Plus, Jae Crowder vs Bron and a CP3 vs Russell Westbrook would be great matchups to watch out for.

Surprisingly, while most teams have back-to-back games against the Lakers and Clippers (same venue), the Suns will not play them until December 13th. This increases the probability of them having to face a fit Kawhi Leonard on the Clippers squad. Also, their games against the Nets are a month away from the beginning of the season.

Feb 10 vs Bucks: As painful as it sounds for the Phoenix Suns fans, their shot at revenge won’t come until February. This time, the “Suns in four” chants might get replaced with something else. But it’d still be an interesting watch. The two teams will face each other only twice this season.
