Other than Robin Lopez, the Suns will be healthy Wednesday.  No luck facing a team without one of its top two players. While Lopez has improved greatly this season, he's not Steve Nash, Amar'e Stoudemire, Jason Richardson or Grant Hill.  In fact, few teams have been playing better basketball since the All-Star break and are the Suns are now fourth seeded in the West, a half-game back of second-place Dallas in an increasingly tight playoff race.  They've won eight straight, averaging 120.3 points a game over that stretch. The Suns lead the league in offensive efficiency, as well as 3-point percentage, led by Jared Dudley and Channing Frye, both shooting 44 percent from deep. In fact, the Alvin Gentry-coached Suns are averaging more points per game than Suns teams  coached by his former boss, Mike D'Antoni.  On Tuesday, they won again, this time in Chicago, beating the Bulls 111-105 with Richardson finishing with 27 points. Nash had 22 and Stoudemire had 21.
