Phoenix Suns

It’s not surprising to see the Phoenix Suns atop this list. For much of the season, the Suns have been the most dominating team in the league. They have the best record in the league and have one of the league’s rising superstars in Devin Booker.

However, the Suns aren’t without questions. Chris Paul is currently sidelined with an injury and he’s not expected to be back until the playoffs. This is a dramatically different team without Paul in the lineup.

The Suns are still a really good team without Paul in the lineup, but they become the dominating contender when he’s healthy and playing a big role for them. If he isn’t healthy, there’s a good chance this season could, once again, end in disappointing fashion for the Suns.
