Phoenix Suns (8-16) at 76ers (13-9)

Monday at 7p.m., at Wells Fargo Center

Talking points

The Suns have lost two straight and five of their last six games. This will be Phoenix's fifth game of a six-game East Coast road trip. The Suns boast one of the league's top young players in shooting guard Devon Booker.  He's averaging 23.6 points and shooting 47.6 percent on three-pointers. The Sixers can't look past the struggling Suns, or Booker and Co. will make them pay, as the Sacramento Kings did in a 109-108 upset of the 76ers on Nov. 9.
