It’s been some time since we have seen the Phoenix Suns struggle like they are right now.
The team is currently in the midst of a six-game losing streak.
They are hoping to rebound and snap that streak soon as they take on the Golden State Warriors, Denver Nuggets, and Minnesota Timberwolves this week.
They have been looking very rough lately in just about every way.

But their offensive power has never looked so weak.
The Suns have not scored more than 100 points so far this year.
That makes them the sole team in the NBA that hasn’t scored more than 100 in 2023, which is a factoid the Suns would rather forget.
There are many problems with the Suns right now but this is one that will need to be addressed as soon as possible.
A crew simply cannot win games unless they are scoring a lot, especially in a league that has become so powerful on the defensive end of the court.
In the last few games, they have fought against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, and Toronto Raptors, teams that all have strong defensive players.
Obviously, the temporary loss of Devin Booker has really impacted the Suns.
Booker is the team’s best shooter and was scoring 27.1 points a game before a groin injury took him out for at least a month.
You would think that other guys on the squad – Chris Paul, for example – would step and fill the offensive void left by Booker.
But Paul actually sat during the last game and was performing inconsistently before that.
Monty Williams will need to do something about this problem plaguing Phoenix because time is wasting and Booker is still on the mend.
