Moments after winning their 16th straight game, the Phoenix Suns could be heard clapping and shouting in celebration of their latest victory on their way into the visitor’s locker room at Barclays Center.
“We run New York!” one member of the Suns team could be heard shouting in the hallway.
The Suns (17-3) completed a road sweep of the New York teams on back-to-back nights and moved within one win of matching their franchise’s longest winning streak with a 113-107 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday. The win came one night after the Suns beat the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Friday night.
Now Phoenix will try to match the franchise’s record 17-game winning streak, set in 2006-07 when it hosts Golden State on Tuesday. The Warriors (17-2) currently own the best record in the league.
