Brooklyn has won six of seven games since P.J. Carlesimo took over as head coach for Avery Johnson. The team will also try to match its longest winning streak of the season (five).
Meanwhile, the Suns, owners of the second-worst record in the Western Conference, are just 2-16 this season playing on the road, having lost 11 straight contests ? the longest skis in franchise history since losing 14 straight in 1984.
