The San Antonio Spurs have hit their stride in the beginning of this homestand, and they want to keep that rolling against a struggling Suns squad.
The sky seemed to be falling for the San Antonio Spurs about a week ago after they lost to the Lakers in L.A., which marked their fourth loss in their past five games.
However, things have turned around recently in the first two games of a six-game homestand beating the Lakers with a tremendous fourth quarter effort from the second unit and a comfortable victory over the Jazz.
Those two wins avenged recent defeats over each of those foes on a two-game road trip and have vaulted the Spurs back into the playoff conversation in the Western Conference.
San Antonio is set to host the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night.

With a win, the Spurs would climb back to .500 and potentially pass a couple of teams to hop back into the top ten in the Western Conference standings.
San Antonio absolutely dismantled the Suns in their first meeting back in October on Halloween night. The Spurs cruised to a 30-point victory in a game that wasn’t particularly close at any point.
However, the Suns picked up one of their four wins on the season in a November 14th contest in Phoenix where they dominated a San Antonio team that was without Rudy Gay.
The Suns head into this matchup riding a nine-game losing streak, and they could be lacking some energy after an overtime loss to the Clippers on Monday night.
Phoenix has been unable to even make games close during their recent losing streak dropping each of their last six games by 14 points or more.
Phoenix is 0-3 on the second night of back-to-backs this season, and they will be in that scenario once again on their trip to San Antonio.
The Suns will continue to play without their best player as Devin Booker nurses a hamstring injury, and they lack any real firepower outside of their injured young guard.
The Spurs will be heavy favorites in this one, but it is imperative that they keep playing well as they try to build some momentum during this homestand.
