Perfect Suns need help to reach playoffs

The Phoenix Suns have done just about everything they can to put themselves in position for a spot in the Western Conference play-in game.

They're 7-0 -- the only undefeated team in the NBA's bubble -- and have one seeding game to go Thursday afternoon. It's against a team they've already beaten in the league's return-to-play games near Orlando, the Dallas Mavericks.

The Suns (33-39) can pull off an improbable run to the play-in game with a win over Dallas and losses by either the Portland Trail Blazers or Memphis Grizzlies, which would give Phoenix the No. 9 seed. If the Suns win and both the Blazers and Grizzlies lose, the Suns would be the No. 8 seed and need to be beaten twice by the No. 9 seed in the play-in round.
