2017–18 Phoenix Suns Season
The 2017–18 PHOENIX SUNS SEASON is the 50th season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA), as well as their 25th season at the Talking Stick Resort Arena . It is also their third season in five years where the Suns would earn themselves a top-five draft pick in the NBA Draft , with them having the second straight year of gaining the #4 pick, this time being Josh Jackson . Three games into the season, head coach Earl Watson was fired. Guard Eric Bledsoe sent out a cryptic tweet wherein he implied he wanted out of Phoenix. The next day, Bledsoe was barred from playing with the team by GM Ryan McDonough (he would later be fined $10,000 for his tweet). Under interim head coach Jay Triano , the Suns started out 4–1 after suspending Bledsoe. The Suns traded Bledsoe to the Milwaukee Bucks on November 7, 2017 in exchange for center Greg Monroe and two protected draft picks

Western Conference (NBA)
The WESTERN CONFERENCE of the National Basketball Association is made up of 15 teams, and organized into three divisions of five teams each. Since 2006, the three division winners and the non-division winner with the best record are seeded 1 through 4 for the playoffs in order of their record, with all remaining non-division winners seeded 5 through 8. This leaves open the possibility that a #2 or #3 seed could be a non-division winner. Home-court advantage in a playoff series is decided by record, not by seeding, so if a #4 and #5 team met in a playoff series in which the #5 team had the better record, the #5 team would have home-court advantage. The reasoning behind this seeding arrangement is that a non-division winner could have a better record than the winners of the two divisions other than the one that produced the non-division winner in question
