Suns Corollary
Teams that have played the Suns multiple times this year who are ahead of the Pels in seeding as it stands (1/9/18):

OKC (4-0)
LAC (3-0)
Denver (2-0) -- about to be 3-0 come Saturday
GSW (2-0)
LAL (2-0)
SAS (2-1)
Por (1-0)
Hou (0-0)

Also, in contention:
Sac (1-1)
Mem (1-1)
Min (0-1)
Mavs (1-2)

The Pels are (1-0) with 3 more tilts to go vs. the Suns.

Point being, two fringe playoff teams ahead of the Pels in the standings have already pretty much burned their WC auto-wins. And that's easy (re: free) ground the Pels can make up in a heartbeat. Especially if they're healthy. Pels have 6 games vs. the 2 worst teams in the league - Suns & Cavs and are 3-0. Whereas Dallas is 1-2. These are the margins that will decide a WC Playoff birth.

re: Suns Corollary
Those Suns who have won

at home vs DAL (twice), MEM, SAS, MIN, SAC
away vs MIL, NYK, BOS, ORL

But understand and agree with Your point.
Problem with Suns is that they can beat anybody...
