An ESPN television graphic, based on NBA play through the end of last night's play, vividly demonstrates that the Dallas Mavericks (game-by-game log) and Phoenix Suns (log) are currently the hottest teams in the league.

The Mavs, after starting the season 0-4, have gone 32-4, for an overall 32-8 record entering tonight's game against the L.A. Lakers. Dallas has also won 18 of its last 19 games, the one loss coming January 7 in L.A. against the very same Lakers.

The Suns, meanwhile, after coming out of the gate 1-4, have gone 29-4, for an overall ledger of 30-8. They are 27-2 in their last 29 games.

Will these be the teams that play in the Western Conference final down the road?
