KEY GAME INFORMATION
PHOENIX: GUARDS: ERIC BLEDSOE immediately becomes the Suns' best player. He dominated for stretches while backing up Chris Paul . . . GORAN DRAGIC and Bledsoe will play together since they're the two best players on this team. Dragic also has enough size to match up with most twos . . . After a disappointing stint as a starter, SHANNON BROWN will return to the second unit . . . KENDALL MARSHALL doesn't fit new coach Jeff Hornacek's up-tempo style. The Suns will move him if they can . . . ARCHIE GOODWIN looked lost at times at Kentucky, but his ability to get to the line bodes well for his NBA future . . . GERALD GREEN is the kind of athlete who could make an impact on an up-tempo second unit . . . MALCOLM LEE is here in case Marshall is dealt. FORWARDS: MARKIEFF MORRIS has some upside as a skilled stretch four. He's shown flashes over his first two seasons, and playing in Honracek's up-tempo system should only help him take the next step forward . . . MARCUS MORRIS is still a man without a position, a tweener in a bad way. The Suns will try to make him into an effective second-unit guy . . . CHANNING FRYE missed all of last season with a heart ailment, and the Suns don't seem to be expecting to get anything from him this season.CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT will keep the seat warm for Alex Len. He doesn't fit this up-and-down offense . . . ALEX LEN must become more assertive and the bust factor is high, but 7-footers with his mobility and touch don't come around often . . . MILES PLUMLEE could get minutes as a defensive specialist after making just 5-of-21 FG as a rookie.
WASHINGTON: GUARDS: Late last year, JOHN WALL finally started to fulfill his promising talent. He got wherever he wanted on the court, and the Wizards were very tough to guard with all the shooters surrounding him . . . BRADLEY BEAL and Wall should mesh beautifully. Beal is a potentially elite shooter, and he rebounds very well for a guard . . . ERIC MAYNOR is fully healthy again after tearing his ACL two seasons ago. He can play some alongside Wall, but mostly he'll be the league's best back-up point guard again . . . GLEN RICE JR. doesn't shoot it nearly as well as his father, but he's an athlete who could break into the rotation down the line . . . GARRETT TEMPLE is insurance in case Wall or Maynor goes down. FORWARDS: The Wizards need NENÊ’S low post offense. It seems inevitable that they'll have to cap his minutes . . . OTTO PORTER is likely to step into the starting lineup early on. They need his defense, as he can guard twos through fours . . . MARTELL WEBSTER will platoon with Porter, providing another outstanding shooter for Wall to feed . . . TREVOR ARIZA is playing out the string on an untradeable deal . . . TREVOR BOOKER has some use as a screener and low-post banger, but not much else . . . AL HARRINGTON may be inefficient, but he can score points in a hurry and is a decent defender'JAN VESELY is still trying to figure out the NBA, though it's too early to give up on his athleticism . . . CHRIS SINGLETON can defend, but he's no more than a garbage-time player due to his atrocious offense. CENTERS: EMEKA OKAFOR may be absurdly overpaid, but he's settled in as a passable starter who helps defensively and doesn't hurt on offense. He'll also miss the beginning of the season with a herniated disc . . . With Okafor's deal expiring at the end of the year, KEVIN SERAPHIN is auditioning to be Washington's center of the future. After showing promise two seasons ago, he was a disaster last season.

*Suns-Wizards Preview* ======================

By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer

Phoenix (42-29) at Washington (36-34), 7:00 p.m. EDT

The Phoenix Suns are rolling at the perfect time, preparing for a brutal end to their schedule that ultimately will decide their playoff fate.

A five-year postseason drought is likely to end for the Washington Wizards, but their recent play hasn't pleased coach Randy Wittman.

Phoenix heads to the nation's capital looking to match its season high with a fifth straight victory Wednesday night while avoiding a fourth consecutive defeat to the struggling Wizards.

The Suns (42-29) are enjoying their best season since Steve Nash helped them to 54 wins and the Western Conference finals in 2009-10, but they're still locked in a fight with Memphis and Dallas for the final two playoff spots.

Phoenix has won six of seven - all since Eric Bledsoe rejoined the starting lineup - after a 102-95 victory over Atlanta on Monday, going 12 of 24 from 3-point range. Bledsoe hit all three of his 3-point attempts to break a 5-for-25 slump and scored 20 points, Goran Dragic added 19 and Channing Frye had 18 with four 3-pointers.

The Suns now look to sweep a three-game road trip before a pair of seemingly favorable matchups - against New York on Friday and the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday - though the schedule gets much more difficult from there. They'll face the Clippers, Portland, Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Dallas and Memphis over their final eight.

"It's about us," Frye said. "We have to play like we're already in (the playoffs)."

More solid performances from Bledsoe and Dragic should help. Bledsoe recorded his third straight 20-point game Monday, while Dragic is shooting 53.8 percent from the field and 12 of 26 from 3-point range over his last seven.

"It's unbelievable. Goran is a terrific competitor," Bledsoe said. "Off the court, he's a good friend. We encourage each other and play off one another."

Phoenix will be looking to win five straight for the third time this season by avenging a 101-95 loss to the Wizards on Jan. 24.

John Wall had one of his career high-tying 26 double-doubles in that contest with 18 points and 12 assists, but he wasn't nearly as good in Sunday's 105-102 loss to Denver.

Wall had four assists - less than half his season average - and his eight turnovers were his most in two years as Washington had a season-high 24. The Wizards (36-34) have lost five of eight after a 1-3 road trip.

"We're giving games away," Wittman said. "We aren't going to beat anybody with 24 turnovers. Doesn't matter who you're playing, or who's playing or who's not playing, or where you're playing. We've got to somehow handle the success that we have in a game better than we do."

Wittman was referring to the 14-point lead the Wizards held in the first quarter and subsequently lost due to carelessness with the ball. Three starters had at least four turnovers.

"Feel like we could've won this game (if) we opened it up," Wall said. "But we turned the ball over too much."

Washington holds the sixth seed in the East and has a good chance to appear in the playoffs for the first time since 2007-08. That doesn't mean they can take it easy down the stretch, though.

"We thought we were going to show up and just win the game versus showing up and taking the game," said Drew Gooden, averaging 16.6 points and shooting 61.1 percent off the bench over his last five.

Washington has averaged 106.5 points over its last six, though Phoenix has held three of its last four opponents below 100.

The Suns' three-game losing streak in this series - which comes after 10 straight wins - is their longest in 25 years.
