“The Phoenix Suns are a threat in the West. They’re going to be a top-five team … and don’t be surprised if they make it to the Western Conference Finals,” Perkins said.
“Deandre Ayton will have his Best season of his career playing with Chris Paul and Devin Booker just might lead the NBA in Scoring. The Suns are a top 5 team in the West!!! Carry on…,” the analyst added.
