We’re concluding our monthly win-loss predictions for the Phoenix Suns‘ 2022-23 season. After a predicted 10-5 record in March, our forecast suggest the Suns will be 53-24 heading into April.

With only five games left on the calendar, results can be hard to gauge. Some teams, including Phoenix, may have secured a playoff berth by this point and could rest key players to finish the season. Others may be battling to make the postseason or grab home court advantage.

Valley of the Suns have provided monthly win-loss predictions on the Phoenix Suns season, with April concluding what should be another successful regular season for the franchise.

Here is the win-loss prediction for each Suns game in the month of April:

Sunday April 2 @ Oklahoma City Thunder – Win (1-0)

Tuesday April 4 v San Antonio Spurs – Win (2-0)

Thursday April 6 v Denver Nuggets – Win (3-0)

Friday April 7 @ Los Angeles Lakers – Loss (3-1)

Sunday April 9 v Los Angeles Clippers – Loss (3-2)

Notable Takeaways

  • The Suns enter the month with a soft two games against the Thunder and Spurs. Given the rebuilding nature of both teams, you’d expect they’d have put the cue in the rack well before this point of the season.
  • Phoenix host Denver twice in a week (31st March and 6th April) – a quirky scheduling scenario. The Suns are predicted to win both games.
  • The Lakers matchup is on the second night of a back-to-back. With 56 wins predicted by this point, expect and hope to see the Suns starters rested from this matchup.
  • The season rounds out with a predicted loss to the Clippers. Again, Phoenix will have hoped to secure home court advantage already, while the Clippers may still be pushing for the same result.

A 3-2 record to close, resulting in a 56-27 predicted season for the Suns. This would be a fantastic situation, setting themselves up for another tilt at the championship. For context, 56 wins would still have won last season’s Western Conference, but either way, it should be good enough for top top two at an absolute minimum.
