Suns-Wizards Preview

(AP) -- After their breakthrough last season, the Washington Wizards have their sights on a deeper playoff run.

Working toward that goal, the Wizards can pull off a pair of impressive achievements Sunday night by recording the best start in franchise history and their longest winning streak in nearly a decade if they beat the visiting Phoenix Suns.

Washington reached 44 wins last season and made it to the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2005. The Wizards are now on pace for the winningest regular season in franchise history, needing a victory Sunday to reach 20 wins faster than they ever have.
