Opponent: Phoenix Suns

Site: America West Arena, Phoenix

Time: 9

TV/Radio: HTS/WWRC (980 AM)

Outlook: Washington has lost 16 straight to the Suns since beating them March 9, 1988, in Landover. The Suns lost their first 13 games of the season, but have responded under new coach Danny Ainge by winning seven of their past 10. The streak has nearly coincided with the return of G Kevin Johnson, who was activated on Nov. 24 after missing the start of the season because of hernia surgery. G Sam Cassell (Dunbar) is averaging 15.2 ppg for the Suns. The Bullets have won four straight, the team's longest streak of the season.
